When one of my closest friends told me she was expecting her first baby, I could’t have been more thrilled. Not only did I know that she was going to make an amazing mother, but I had a feeling that I would probably get to be involved with the baby shower planning. I knew just who I would turn to help me throw one of the chicest baby showers around…Minted of course! Thanks to Minted I’ve been sending the most gorgeous holiday cards out the past few years, so I knew they would have what I needed to make this baby shower super special. They exceeded my expectations and then some! And it all started with the stunning nautical baby shower invitation…

Being that the mommy to be requested a nautical theme, which thrilled me because it meant I could use one of my favorite color combinations, navy and yellow by the way, Minted’s Midnight and Gold Foil Baby Shower Invitation was perfect for the color scheme. This foil pressed invitation was designed by one of Minted’s independent artists and is anything but your typical baby shower invitation! It felt like it was custom made for my super stylish friend!
The next step was decor and Minted’s Nautical Party Decor collection was just the ticket! I selected a personalized banner, garlands, table signs, party signs, table confetti, wine glass tags, flag stickers and such all in a lovely navy, yellow and grey color palette. With such beautifully printed pieces to work with, it wasn’t hard for our party planning team to finish off the decorations with simple white linens, hydrangea flower arrangements, adorable nautical shaped cookies, which served as favors, from All the Buzz Cookies and a fun anchor bedecked cake.
So, if you’re planning a baby shower, birthday party or any special occasion that you need a unique invitation or chic party decorations for, look no further than Minted! Their products are statement making all on their own which makes your job as party planner so much easier! And it doesn’t hurt if you can hire a professional photographer to capture all your hard work. Thanks to Marissa Stratton for the beautiful images she took of my friend’s special day!
