Sailboat First Birthday Party

Planning a first birthday party? Check out this darling first birthday party for some great ideas for decorations, food, and above all--activities, perfect for a large family celebration of this milestone event!!!

Submitted by Michelle, we are thrilled to share with you this amazing party she put together to celebrate her son Arya's first birthday.

We absolutely love the color scheme of light blue, red and white (one you have probably seen a lot of these days--we think it is PERFECT for baby, and great for boys or girls!).

Michelle integrated this color scheme in every detail, like these gorgeous red and white stripe paper straws!

And how about these darling wrapped sandwiches? Decorative, and tasty!

The sailboat theme starting right at the front door...check out S.S. ARYA! What a darling "wreath" alternative!

The color-scheme was carried throughout the entire indoor and outdoor party space. Check out the lanterns and table cloths outside--what a gorgeous space!

There was also a very nautical feel outdoors. We love the anchor at the fountain...

...and the table too! We love the crisp white.

Michelle set up a delicious food table with fish netting.

She also used red and blue berries on skewers to have her color-scheme incorporated in the food itself!

One of our favorite details: The goldfish cracker cones!

How about the beautiful birthday cake?

And another shot of the cake, featuring custom bunting by Kate Landers Events, LLC!

The darling embroidered sailboat party hat is also by Kate Landers Events, LLC. The bib matches perfectly--family heirlooms to be treasured!

Check out the handsome birthday boy with loving mom and dad about to enjoy his first birthday cake!

Guests were treated to scrumptious catered food out on the patio, loads of spectacular food indoors as well, and enjoyed fabulous decorations all around them. But they were also entertained! Check out the balloon animal artist!

Then of course musical instruments and a parachute (a GREAT activity for 1 year olds)!

A classic birthday activity: a pinata!

Another favorite detail: the wall of favors--what a creative idea!!! We love it!

Sailboat cookies served as favors, adorned with custom sailboat favor tags by Kate Landers Events, LLC.

Another sweet decoration among some spectacular fruit!

And last but not least, a stunning photo capturing this gorgeous birthday boy!

A HUGE thank you to Michelle for sharing your gorgeous party with us! We know you spent months working on this enormous milestone celebration, and it all came together beautifully! We would have loved to have been at this party!

We hope you enjoyed lots of inspiration from Arya's first birthday!
