Today we are not only brining you one really great giveaway but we are sharing a sneak peek into her book with one of my favorites — the Nautical Birthday Party. From the stripes and polka dots to the All-American color palette including navy blue, red, yellow and white — you will fall in love. The Anchor, Nautical Flags, Rope and Sailboats are just a few of the oh-so-cute design elements we love.

Here is what Kelly shared with us about this super-fun party idea inside her book:

There are a few party themes that are perfectly classic and timeless and will remain current forever.  A nautical theme is just that.  It works for a girl, a boy, for a first birthday or a fourth birthday (it could even be darling for baby shower!).  What’s not to love about nautical stripes and preppy sailboats?!

Classic elements such as an anchor, a sailboat and nautical flags are a simple addition to party décor.  The theme lends itself to preppy patterns and a crisp color palette of navy blue, red and yellow, but you could reinvent any of the ideas in this chapter in a variety of modern color palettes (aqua and orange, pink and navy blue).  This chapter in Stylish Kids’ Parties gives you simple ideas to carryout the nautical theme, including some DIY décor projects, printable templates and a creative spin on a classic dessert recipe.

Look at these adorable pictures to help inspire your next party and don’t forget to enter to win the amazing giveaway package below!
