As a counterpart to our post on beach wedding printing, we also get lots of requests for nautical styled events also… There are many stylish ways to do “nautical” without being too themey, so we’re sharing today, let us know if we can help you with any upcoming parties! These escort cards were made to look like flags on a “watercolor” board paying homage to the yacht club wedding location for the next day.

With subtle nods to nautical, reversing the somewhat obvious and printing the white text on navy paper gives an upscale result.

For this yacht club rehearsal dinner, we created a custom illustration that was used to line the envelopes, back the invitations, and also printed on fabric to use as table runners. We also created a logo featuring a crest atop crossing oars with an anchor representing two people joining together and anchoring each other in marriage. And, sweet flag place cards were tied with hemp twine.

Of course no nautical party is complete without the traditional look of stripes. To jazz up passing trays, we created simple red, white, and blue nautical striped papers.

And for dressing up the dessert plates, we made custom printed “doilies” using a rope and knot striped design.
