Birthday Parties

Nautical first birthday party food ideas?

I'm having a nautical themed first birthday party for my son in June. The main colors are navy blue, baby blue, and red. I need some food ideas. So far, I'm thinking a veggie tray, fruit cups with red and blue fruit, goldfish crackers, shrimp cocktail, fruit pizza bites with strawberries and blueberries or crab/sailboat cookies, cupcakes, maybe a meat and cheese tray? I want to include some more cutesy nautical themed food. TIA!

  • How about crab and artichoke dip with nachos? And if it were my party I would probably set out plain cheesecake and let guests top it with their choice of blueberries, strawberries and or cherries.

  • You could get sandwich/cookie cutters in the shapes of boats, anchors, fish, etc and make little shaped sandwiches (maybe with tuna salad inside). I made dinosaur shaped ones for DS's 1st birthday, they were a PITA to make but came out totally cute

  • You could do a clam chowder/crab chowder, although I don't know how warm it will be in June, crab salad or lobster rolls might work better.

    Swedish fish/gummy sharks

    San dollar cookies

    pretzels (nautical knots)

    For the fruit I love the idea of the red and blue fruit cups - especially for June when berries are so right there.   You could also do orange slice boats in blue jello (or even strawberry half/quarter boats):

    Those jello cups are adorable!

    Pepper octopus in the veggie dip/on the veggie tray.

    If you want to go with whales instead of goldfish, they carry these at Dollar Tree.

    Hot dog octopi?

  • Mandaline cookies kind of look like sea shells to dip in a sweet sauce. Pasta salad with shell pasta. 

    Have fun!

    The target brand toothpicks, up and up have an adorable sailboat serving suggestion, it is a granny Smith wedge with a ham sail held together with a toothpick for a mast. I've always meant to try it but haven't done it.

    My friend did something like this for her son's 1st birthday. She did apple wedge with a cheese sail though. Very cute!
