I love, love, love finding adorable parties in my email! This pink and navy first birthday party by Tracy of Sweet Peach Paperie makes me very happy. Tracy created this nautical-themed party for her daughter Eliza’s lakeside first birthday — adorable!

What a beautiful setting! Tracy’s mom made the tablecloth from steal-of-a-deal fabric: it cost only $3.

Tracy designed all the printables including these sweet invitations. (You can find them in her shop — loads of cute printables there for boys, girls, baby showers and bridal showers.) She lined the navy envelopes with a pink stripe paper and sealed them with a coordinating return address sticker.

The nautical flag garland may be may favorite detail at the party. (You know, aside from the dining table and these pink lunch sacks, and the activity…)

Great water bottle labels. (Tracy’s tip: you don’t need to print these on label paper. Good quality cardstock and glue stick plus tape works just as well.)

Anchor cookies from Sweet Goosie Girl coordinate perfectly with the printables. I can tell you from my own experience, Terri’s cookies are yummy, so beautiful and wonderfully packaged — no broken cookies!

Pink pails from the Target dollar bin — doesn’t that always feel like such the score? They were filled with “life preservers” (AKA, Lifesavers). But this one really makes me smile: Tracy spotted the pretzel Goldfish containers at her local Atlanta Bread Company, asked the manager if she could purchase some, and he gave them to her for free!

The paper cupcake toppers are part of Tracy’s collection, but the fondant toppers are from Claudia the Cupcake Lady, who also made a sailboat topper for Eliza’s smash cake.

“Popcorn for the Shrimps” and blueberry – yogurt parfaits (in individual parfait glasses from Party City) let Tracy offer some healthy snacks to her little guests.

Straw flags finish off cute pink and navy straws and the party circles with pink anchors (!) top the pretzel containers.

The favor bags are from Shop Sweet Lulu and Tracy added favor tags and Lifesavers.

Tracy’s dad made sailboat components, her mom made the sails, and the guests hammered them together. Great activity!

And here’s Tracy with her darling birthday girl.
