We ordered these adorable anchor cookies in navy & pink from Sweet Goosie Girl.  Don’t you just smile when you say that name?  How cute!

Styling tip: Print our free paper liners for plates onto bright white cardstock.  Turn your plate upside down to add some height to your display and cut the paper to size.  Lay pretty patterned paper underneath your treats for a finishing touch.

Use these free printable menu cards to let your guests know what you’re serving.  You can download the template and type in your own menu items.  They print to fit perfectly in these silver pearl frames.

Another easy tip is to pick up cupcakes from your local bakery or grocery store and display them in colored cupcake liners and top them with personalized party flags wrapped around cute paper party straws for a custom cupcake topper!

In keeping with our theme, we chose to server pink moscato wine in these personalized stemless wine glasses. The wine is perfectly pink!  After the shower, send the glasses home with the bride-to-be.  She will enjoy sipping on these glasses throughout her entire engagement!

For an easy DIY centerpiece, wrap a craft bucket with nautical rope to create the perfect container for fresh flowers.  When choosing your flowers, consider your color scheme.  We selected varieties in shades of white & pinks to create our floral centerpiece.

To easily decorate your space for the perfect bridal shower, just hang a personalized backdrop behind your table.  Your table top can coordinate too! Cover your table with a white tablecloth and a personalized table runner with a great nautical rope pattern.  For a finishing touch, hang a personalized banner to the front of your table with the bride’s name or a themed message. Set Sail!
