I hope you enjoyed the Guide to Planning a Nautical Party that we recently posted. Today we’re sharing photos of a Nautical Brunch that we styled last summer and that was featured in two of our go to party and entertaining blogs: Pizzazzerie and Swanky Chic Fete. This brunch was a celebration of the many years I lived in Maine and the memories I have of summer days spent strolling around picturesque lobster fishing towns with my kids and hubby.
The focal point of the table was a gorgeous Sail Boat placed on a Vanilla- Raspberry Cake. I framed it by hanging a yellow Flag Banner that added a pop of color to the red, blue and white tablescape. I used many props like a Fisherman figurine, a wooden anchor, life guards and lobster buoys that I had been collecting from antique shops or small gift shops to create a true nautical atmosphere.
I tied nautical knots on the Hobnail Cake Stands where vanilla Cupcakes were displayed. Nautical bowls filled with tri-color popcorn displayed red, blue and yellow Candle Torches. I love how the Hot Air Balloon Paper lantern gave the table a nostalgic feel.
The food served consisted of savory and sweet bite size treats. I used Petite Cups to showcase chocolate chip mini Cheesecakes, lemon Petite Fours, mini cream cheese tomato- chives sandwiches and Quiche Lorraine. The Fruit Salads were served in Square Mini Glasses.
