- A Project For: Wendy
- Location: Beaver Island Michigan
Five of my friends and I through this shower for Wendy. Wendy and her husband own a tugboat and also chose a nautical theme for the babys room,(and we live on an island) so we decided to stick with that. The flags in the flower buckets said Welcome Baby Fogg in nautical flag code. We bound one of the invitations with lined paper for a homemade guest list. We made the favors out of a nautical chart of our island printed onto paper and folded into a hat. Wendys mom brought all of her stuffed animals and put them in a wagon outside the entrance. She also brought a photo of Wendy as a baby, along with the actual dress she was wearing for a display. I found out how to make the paper hats on martha stewarts website: marthastewart.com and we printed out charts of our island onto the paper we used.

we bough all of our items locally and had everything printed locally as well. We used the actual flags the expecting couple has on their tug boat to decorate with.
Even if you are from a very small town, there are easy ways to improvise if you are throwing a themed shower. Visit your local shops and take inspiration from things that you may take for granted. We hosted the shower in a local restaurant that is on lake michigan and already "nautically" themed.
