Did the new parents choose a nautical baby shower? Did you take the parents’ love of sailing to create a coastal shower? Nautical themes are gender neutral and work great to celebrate a boy or a girl. Plus, it’s trendy, especially for summer! We curated some of our favorite ideas and decor to create an amazing seafaring look!

1. Life Preserver Guestbook

Need a fun party activity? Pick up a life preserver and ask guests write messages to the baby with blue permanent marker. The parents can hang it up in the baby’s nursery, and it’ll become a treasured keepsake for years to come.
