A Sailboat Birthday Party

A stylish sailboat birthday party is a fabulous way to celebrate a little boys' birthday in classic fashion. We consider it appropriate for a first, second or third birthday--though my husband would probably love the sailboat theme for his next birthday so I guess it works for boys of all ages!

We wanted to help you create a look you love for your little guys' next birthday party, and therefore we are creating a little "storyboard" of images of products you can use to create a perfectly stylish sailboat birthday party!

It starts with the color-scheme, then invitation. Kate Landers Events, LLC, offers an exclusive line of stitched invitations that are truly little works of art and will surely make a splash when your guests receive them in the mail. Combining textured and smooth stock, vivid silky threads and inks, our line of simply stitched invitations are not to go unnoticed.

We will go with the light blue, red and white theme for our Stylish Sailboat Birthday Party, but of course you can select any color scheme you like best.

After the invitations have been printed, addressed, sealed, stamped and sent, let the fun begin working on the details for the rest of the event!

We absolutely LOVE our line of Rice's Melamine Plates and Tumblers for birthday parties. They are more eco-friendly, incredibly stylish, practical, functional, and the perfect size for little ones. The best part of all? You will have these dishes for every day use after the party is over. They are dishwasher safe, and can survive many tumbles and sticky fingers.

We adore the Classic Red Melamine Plates and Tumblers alone, or mixed with the Light Blue Melamine Plates and Tumblers. Melamine Plates $9.00 each, Melamine Tumblers $7.00 each.

Kate Landers Events, LLC, also offers an exclusive line of Children's Cloth Napkins are absolutely darling paired with our melamine dishes. They are available in 8" or 10" squares, 2 layers of ultra soft yet durable cotton, trimmed with rick rack for a stylish yet simple appearance. The best part? Other than teaching little ones what it feels like to eat a meal with a napkin on their lap or tucked into their shirt, these napkins make adults happy because they are machine washable and dryer safe. A light press is all you will need after a wash and dry to get them back to party-perfect shape. Each set is custom made to order. Available in sets of 4 for $32.00. We love the classic white cloth with white rick rack because the are so easy to keep clean, and can easily match your other dishes and flatware. But, we can't resist the look of the light blue napkin with white or red rick rack trim, and the white napkin with red or light blue rick rack trim. So many combinations!

If you love the look of melamine but are serving 50 guests for that first birthday blowout and can't imagine needing all of those dishes again, do not fear, we always offer the classic paper party products as well! We are partial to our exclusive Custom Round Labels for birthday cups, paper napkin rings and anything else you wish to personalize with them. They instantly add your color scheme to the table, and add a splash of style to the simplest white paper cup. Available in sheets of 10 for $7.00-$9.00 each.

We also offer darling Personalized Paper Napkins, and recommend the light blue swiss dot napkin with the classic red matte ink, or the red swiss dot napkin with the navy matte ink, to match the sailboat decor. We often will use these for beverage napkins for the adults while also using the cloth napkins for the children seated at the party table. They are a perfect way to incorporate your color scheme in the smallest of details! Starting in quantities of 25 napkins for $17.50. There is a significant price break for larger quantities!

Party hats are a favorite item at Kate Landers Events, LLC, and our exquisite felt Sailboat Party Hat is at the top of our list for most stylish party hats for boys. Custom made to order, each hat can be created in your own color scheme. We just adore these hats from the lining giving them stiffness to the velvet ribbon that neatly ties below the chin. We also offer solid color felt party hats if you prefer to have the birthday boy wear the sailboat hat and all the guests wear coordinating hats in colors to match. It is a more cost-effective route yet still more eco-friendly. We find our felt hats to be heirloom pieces, and something your family will adore for years to come. Exquisite felt Sailboat Party Hat $20.00 each.

We also have a love of paper and our line of Classic Paper Party Hats is certainly a favorite. We suggest the Nautical Stripes, Swiss Dots, Large Dots or Small dots in Reds, White and Light Blues. You can mix them up or keep them all the same. $2.45 per hat, with a minimum of 4 hats per design.

Since we're on the subject of paper, there is no way to go without mentioning our fabulous exclusive line of Classic Monogrammed Wrapping Papers. We think the light blue, red and white monogram wrap would be perfect not only for gifts for the birthday boy (hint: wrapped presents are a wonderful way to incorporate your color scheme without having to go out and buy unnecessary decorations. Just wrap the gifts in your colors, use as a centerpiece of pile on that arm chair in the corner or line along the mantle, and you're done!), but would also be a great way to wrap little personalized favor packages from the birthday boy for each of the guests. Available in sets of 4 sheets for $20.00.

Our exclusive line of Luxe Bunting is out of this world. One thing we love about it most is the versatility. It makes a perfect backdrop at the party for photo ops, and later can be moved to the child's bedroom and used for years as decor, whether it is above his crib or big boy bed! We adore the red and winter white corduroy flags with light blue velveteen letters....a specatular look. Available for $8.00 per flag for the first 8 flags, then $6.00 per flag for each additional.

Soon we will be offering darling cupcake toppers (shown in photo of party scene with the paper party hats and while birthday cake) that feature light blue and white gingham fabric stars with red felt trim. They can be personalized with your child's (or each guests') initial!

We are also THRILLED to announce that we soon will be offering custom designer cloth table runners and table cloths. You can e-mail us at to inquire about placing your custom order early.

We will also be offering monogrammed latex balloons...big red balloons would be a great way to bring your color scheme to new heights at your son's birthday event!

And let's not forget about the tissue poms. We love them, and red and light blue ones hanging over a candy buffet would be icing on the cake. We will be offering those soon as well, and are taking custom orders, so please inquire!

Looking for gifts? How about one of our Preppy Personalized Hooded Whale Towels, or a set of our Cabana Stripe Stationery to write those thank you notes on!

We hope you enjoyed our Stylish Sailboat Birthday Party Post, and look out for our next party post for little girls!
