Nautical Baby Shower Decorations

Can you believe these amazing sailboat jello cups? These were created by the talented ladies over at Malu Boutiques!

They recently styled a "Nautical Baby Shower" that is as cute as it gets! Once I saw the cute pictures, I just knew I had to share them with you!

Thank you Malu Boutiques for letting me feature your adorable baby shower!

The Jello cups have been topped with a mandarin orange and for the sail you simply insert a toothpick that has a paper triangle taped to it.

The chocolate dipped marshmallows are so colorful and festive! Yum!

The net back drop behind the food table is so clever! I love how they attached cute starfish and clam shells to the net!

Another great idea that they had was to fill apothecary jars with sand and shells!

What an adorable little boat to place on the main table as a holder for place cards or just for decoration!

Again, thank you Malu Boutiques for the adorable inspiration!
