Anchor Themed Birthday Party






Nautical Birthday Party Ideas

What is it about summer birthdays that makes them so fun?
The majority of the birthdays in our family are in the winter and early spring.  That's when our weather is so dark and gray and most of the time--rainy.  In fact, we're usually surprised when it doesn't rain on our birthdays.

But my mother-in-law...she's the lucky one, with a birthday in August!
Oh, how we all wish we could have an August birthday with blue skies and sunshine and fresh watermelon and berries.
August in the Seattle area is absolutely gorgeous!
The warmth, light and sun always makes you want to celebrate!
Just take a look at my mother-in-law's nautical anchor party.



Anchor Themed Party

Anchor's Aweigh!
It's a Nautical anchor-themed party.
'Love is where the anchor drops.'
'You are my anchor in the storm.'
Heb. 6:19-- Love anchors the soul.

Anchor tags and clips were found at Target Dollar Spot.



A very simple party was made easy by a few anchor party supplies.  Red & White striped wrapping paper down the center of the table makes a great and easy table runner.  Instant color, just cut to fit.

Red & white stripes and navy & white stripes are perfect nautical colors.  This could also be a great 4th of July theme.

Our simple summer menu included:  garden salad, watermelon, black pepper chips and salmon.  

Anchor party with fish and chips.


You do have to have fish (and chips) at a nautical party, right?

The cake was store-bought (gasp!)  I know.  (It was purchased at WinCo.)  I was planning on making a cake, but when I saw this one in the store, I couldn't resist!  Just take a look at it!


4 flavored cake!

4 different sections:
1 section chocolate
1 section caramel spice
1 section red velvet
1 section carrot cake
We all chose to try a different kind, sort of.  Well, most of us tried out every flavor!  Delicious!

An anchor pillow and gift bags with anchor tags helped decorate the cake table. The anchor pillow is from Coastal Living found at Bed, Bath.& Beyond.

Light up boxes help set the occasion.  Do you have a Lightbox?
These things are so much fun!  No having to print out posters, just change up the letters, plug it in and... it's spectacular!
