A Sailboat Party

First birthdays are the best! Kristin and I recently helped our friend, Barb, to put together a party for her youngest who has "sailed" through his first year! Here are some of the details...

We hung the nautical banner over the picnic table where we put all the food. Barb had the idea to use bamboo to hang it from and it worked perfectly!


To garnish the drinks we used candy in the basic shape of a sailboat and made a little banner for the top. It was even cuter when the glasses were filled with lemonade, but I didn't get a shot of that!

We wrapped the utensils up with a lifesaver.


We served "fish and chips."


Kristin made these adorable cookies for the children to take home but they didn't make it that far!

I made the cake and was a little frustrated that the cookies kept falling down/off!

We also had a fishbowl full of blue jello and some gummi fish (that were floating at some very odd angles!). On top we put little walnut sailboats.
