nautical third birthday

the photos are here!.. from miles' third birthday beach party. 
we designed this party with a nautical theme in shades of blue and green with details of "03" throughout. it all starts with a little bunting.
the invite... click here to go to the original invitation post.
the beach scene was set up with white pop tents and big celebratory sails at the entrance side of the party for immediate festivity. potted grasses ground the shades and add an east coast feel.

pennant flags in tones of blue and green set the scene.
groupings of ribbon flags in jars of sand sat on the tables... 

...and even decorated the turrets of the sandcastle cake.

pennant flag signs labeled each beverage decanter.
finally, the favors for the children were tiny hand made build-it-yourself wooden sail boats with the "03" theme printed on the sail.
the "workshop"
each step to build the boat was labeled and illustrated for ease.
illustrations for boat building.
each child got to choose their own sail...

the happy birthday boy.
