jack's marina and bait shop party

Monday, May 20, 2013

since it's birthday week celebration over here in our household, thought i'd feature some really original and amazing parties i've seen lately. first up today is of my friend nina's son jack's first birthday party last year. the jack's marina and bait shop - themed birthday party was inspired by it's party location, his grandparent's gorgeous lakeside home. 

the picturesque backyard with marina and dock is the perfect party venue for this special first birthday. i LOVE the nautical feel of the entire party with it's flag bunting decor, anchor logo, the fun hunt-for-shells activity and boatrides. 


the huge backyard was the setting for long tables dressed up in gingham tablecloths and giant balloons. so festive! 

this whole theme can also be perfect for a memorial weekend celebration if you have plans to hit the beach, lake or the pool. most public pools officially open memorial day weekend, so it's the perfect way to celebrate summer!

the cutest sweet sweet birthday boy with his beautiful mama. can't believe this was just last year!

How adorable! I love the use of all the balloons (something I’m considering for a certain first birthday coming up as well!) there are so many gorgeous details, but that view is really what has me stunned. Thanks for sharing!
