Best Kids Parties: Nautical

My Party

Name: Jack, 2
Location: La Jolla, CA

When my son Jack turned 2, we threw him a party at a lakefront clubhouse. I love the idea of a nautical themed party because the colors are bright and happy and the decorations are easy to pull together. 

I chose to make a festive homemade "smash cake" with cute bunting for my son to dig into, and a cupcake tower with nautical fondant toppers for the guests. We served an all-American lunch of jumbo hot dogs and potato salad served on tableware in our color scheme of turquoise, bright red, and cobalt. I loved the custom soda labels wrapped around red, white, and blue Jones' soda. I was so happy I could pull-off an outdoor nautical party in the middle of February!
