Rhys' (1st) Nautical Birthday Party

My adorable nephew turned one a few weeks ago and my sister and brother in law threw the sweetest nautical birthday party for him. I really would like to ramble on and on about how quickly time flies and how I feel like he was just born but yeah, I'm pretty sure y'all don't want to read about that ... or maybe you do? ;)

OK, where should I start? I think I'll start at the cake since that tends to be the focal point at every party. I also happened to take one million pictures of it. Judge me. My sister designed the cake and my girlfriend Margaret executed it to perfection. It also tasted amazing! My girlfriend also made the cupcakes and cookies. It was her first time making cookies (and she was so nervous) so I’m disappointed that I did not get any pictures during the party! I'm not sure exactly how that happened to be honest. I did make sure to take a picture of the cookie I went home with but I wish I had remembered since she made so many different designs for the cookies. There were sailboats, seashells, starfishes, anchors, lifesavers, dolphins and of course the number one!

We had delicious Indian food (we love Indian food in our family!), amazing sangria and all the goodies that one could want. There was also a fun photo booth that we all could not resist taking dorky pictures in front of.

It was such a fun and gorgeous birthday party. My sister thought of all the details including my nephew’s getup which I might be bias, but man, he is beautiful! I enjoy being with my family so much that it is hard to keep the smile off my face. Family is everything.

Here are a ton of pictures because you know, details, it just gets me.
I also took pictures of the set up before the cake and cupcakes were put out as well.

  1. This looks like a birthday part straight out of Pinterest. The cake, the decor, the photobooth/wall STUNNING. Your photographs are also beautiful. (I can't believe he's already 1!!!)

  2. The party came out so good! He is just adorable! I love the little hats. We did a first birthday nautical theme when Isaiah turned one and now I wish we would have thought of the hats. It looks like it was a beautiful day and so much fun!
