The theme and invitations were the first detail we put together. Even before my sister knew her baby was a boy I had already created the invite in Photoshop and had started to gather pins on my Nautical Party Pinterest board. You can imagine how elated I was when we confirmed it was a boy and that my sister OK the theme.
The invitation was a 3" square with two sides and included an insert business card size. The front of the insert was in English and the back in Spanish. I printed them through Pro Digital Photo. They are awesome, great quality, and fast turnaround.

We played the Guessing game in which we also filled a giant baby bottle we picked up at JoAnn's and filled it with 274 Swedish Fish candy. I couldn't find it in bulk so I bought 18 of the movie size candy boxes to fill it. (I wish I had pictures of it but with all the things I had to do it slipped my mind) The guests recorded their guesses on these cards that I printed. Again the cards were in both English and Spanish.
Guessing Game- Guess the number of Swedish Fish in Giant Baby Bottle.
Scratcher- Who ever had the word Baby Eli won.
Feeding Game- 3 pairs compete to see who can finish a baby food jar the fastest. Feeder is blind folded.
Pour it up Pour it up- That's what I called it because I like Rihanna's song ;) You take 3 bottles and fill them up with juice or another drink and whoever is the first to drink it all wins. I used the medicine cups that have the bottle nipple attached to them, which I purchased at the 99 cent store.
Dress the Baby- I bought three huge babies at Walmart (11 dollars each) and purchased three sets of clothes at the 99 cents store. A baby hat, socks, onesies, and diapers. Whoever dresses the baby first wins.
Guess Mommy's Tummy- Each guest cut a piece of string the size they though my sister's tummy was. The closest without going over wins.
Bingo- Created Bingo cards in Photoshop and used these cute pencils to check off the boxes. I ordered the pencils from a this seller on Ebay. She is amazing! Fast shipping and great quality.

We handed out the Nautical Boutineer pins to each of our guests. I LOVE this ribbon also from Paper Mart (5828072). I cut 14" long strips, folded in half, tied a nautical knot and hot glued a pin to the back to attach.
