Let’s Sip & Sea What It Will Be | Gender Reveal Party With Cricut
Nautical themed parties have always been a favorite of mine. I love the anchors, boats, sea life and netting. So with a little play on words, my theme was set! I decided a mint, gold and white party would be the perfect gender neutral color palette for my party. And it matches my new Cricut Explore Air 2™ perfectly!
The Party Decor
I always like to start with the backdrop when styling my parties. I had envisioned something light and airy for my outdoor party, so I used white tulle as my backdrop. It flowed beautifully with even the slightest breeze. Next, I painted balloons in the mint and white to spell AHOY as the focal point. I also added a little anchor on the “O” that I cut with my Cricut. I hung a couple of green striped paper lanterns from OTC. I covered my table in natural fish netting and added my mint cake plates and nautical themed decor.
My favorite element from the party was this gorgeous faux cake from Confection Deception. Isn’t it amazing? I topped it with a whale tale to tie in the Sea Life elements.
I also cut my own cupcake toppers with the Cricut and adhered them to embellished paper straws. I placed them in a few gourmet cupcakes with gold liners. These cupcakes were so delicious!
Of course, I needed to decorate some popcorn boxes. I added anchors cut with the Cricut on Gold Glitter Cardstock and added a bit of twine. I also spray painted real seashells and adhered them on the front of a couple boxes.
For the sides of my table, I set out two crates and decorated them with more nets, lanterns and nautical decor. I also spray painted a few sea life creatures metallic gold for added glitz. Who would have thought gold crabs and lobsters would look so cute?
To welcome guests, I created a “Let’s Sip & Sea What It Will Be” sign. (I’ll be sharing my tutorial tomorrow, so be sure to come back to see!)
Another favorite decor element is my white octopus that I bought at World Market. Isn’t he awesome?
The Party Table
I wanted to carry on the white and airy feel or the party table. So I covered my white table with more netting instead of a table cloth and set out my nautical themed plates on top of gold chargers.
I decorated some clear wine glasses from OTC with shells, netting, and rope for my table centerpiece. (You can see how I made them HERE)
With every gender reveal, you need a fun “reveal moment”. I filled a jar with sand and seashells and added a Message in a Bottle for the centerpiece. I also made another vinyl decal which I cut with my Cricut.
I used my Cricut to write the big reveal! “Ahoy! It’s a Boy!” I have terrible penmanship, so I absolutely love the writing feature! If you have a Cricut Explore Air2, you have to try it!
And that’s it! My Let’s Sip & Sea What It Will Be Gender Reveal Party with Cricut! I hope you are inspired to party with Cricut too for your next event!
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see how I made my custom sign!
