nautical baby shower

I put together a nautical themed baby shower for one of my best friends. She is having her third boy. Anyone who has three boys should have a celebration. We kept it fairly simple, with the food table being the focal point. 

I created these invitations using Powerpoint. (I am still hoping to learn Illustrator. Someday, right?)
(*I have cropped it to hide personal info )

Since it was a nautical themed shower, we used salt water taffy as the favor. 

*napkins from Target's party aisle. Have you checked it out? It is awesome!

The following poem was attached (all the guests were very close friends)

There are those who pass like ships in the night,
Who meet for a moment, then sail out of sight
With never a backward glance of regret,

Folks we know briefly then quickly forget.
Then there are friends who sail together,

Through quiet waters and stormy weather, 
Helping each other through joy and through strife.
They are the kind that give meaning to life. 


Crab Sandwiches (chicken salad sandwiches on croissants, made to look like crabs)
Sea Salt Chips (Kettle brand individual bags)
Anchor Apple Salad 
Goldfish (crackers to snack on) 
Starfish Sugar Cookies 
Lighthouse Lemonade
