Nautical Party Pieces

Set the scene for your nautical party with traditional patterns and colours. We’ve selected a mix of navy blue, white and bold red for our colour scheme in a thick candy stripe pattern. You can adapt this theme for any age Birthday party, keep it simple and fresh for adult parties with crisp white, dark navy and classic nautical pieces like anchors and knots. For children you could give the theme a pirate twist with a big pirate ship centrepiece and pirate themed tableware! Above you can see some of our favourite picks that are just perfect for this sea-inspired party theme:

We’ve found so many ways to get creative with a nautical party, one of our favourite creations from the web has to be the nautical twist on white paper party lanterns! If you can’t find your own striped lanterns, take a plain coloured lantern, either white, red or blue and paint on your own stripes! We’d suggest painting white stripes on the coloured lanterns and either blue or red stripes on the white lanterns. It sounds so simple but when a few are bunched together they really do look the part for this theme.

We love these DIY boat decorations. They’d be ideal for adults parties simply dotted as they are around the party room. For children’s parties you could transform them into pirate ships with a skull and crossbones!

Dress up your party favours with this lovely gift wrapping idea. You could put your own spin on the concept with different colours and materials such as a navy and white striped gift box with golden rope detailing.

Banners and Bunting

One of our favourite go to party pieces has to be bunting, it quickly transforms any venue for any party! There are so many options for beautiful bunting with a nautical party, why not have a go at making your own anchor flags to add to your bunting or garlands. If you don’t have the time to make your own bunting why not opt for a striped option like our red striped bunting, perfect for indoors or out!
