A Nautical Baby Shower
April 6, 2015
When the daddy to be has a love of sailing and your studio has soaring ceilings perfect for squeezing a sailboat into then it makes total sense that a nautical themed baby shower, you would have. This party crafted by Ashley Nicole Events comes complete with a boat toting gifts for baby Zorn, and scrumptious food plus a bloodymary bar that had us at hello. See even more captured by Cassidy Brooke right here.

Jody and Zach Zorn are not only dear friends of mine but also professional friends in the wedding industry. They own and operate Zorn Photography. When we found out they were expecting we knew we would throw a massive shower at their studio home in Denver. Given Zach (Daddy to be) love for sailing, we wanted to incorporate a nautical theme throughout the event. It all started with our invitation idea from the creative mommy to be, Jody! She wanted boxes delivered to each guest with a small message in a bottle attached to distressed nautical weathered "dock wood". The parents to be decided to make it their project and they successfully created every invitation for each guest! They were spectacular and set the tone for this unique nautical baby shower.

As guests arrived they were greeted with Zach's sailboat in the middle of the living room and placed their gifts inside. There were lantern chandeliers suspended above them, origami paper boats and of course a Bloody Mary bar and lots of munchies like chicken and waffles and donuts! Table centerpieces consisted of West Elm distressed bottles and handmade oyster shell balls. Guests enjoyed live music while they decorated and personalized onesies for baby Zorn! We also had to include a "cravings bar" which featured some of Jody's most coveted pregnancy flavors and her own "bar" with plenty of bottled water!! The event was the perfect celebration for the most perfect parents to be!!
