If you’re planning a baby shower with a nautical theme, then choosing the right invitations can set the tone for your event. Nautical-themed invitations are available in different designs and motifs such as anchors, sailboats, and compasses. The following themes could inspire your choice of sailor baby shower invitations.

Cute Animal Nautical

Invitations under this theme feature adorable animals dressed in sailor outfits. Two examples of such invitations are the Nautical Ahoy Blue Boy Sailor Bear and Cute Ahoy It’s A Boy Bear Nautical. The blue color scheme of the former adds to its charm, while the latter features a more neutral color palette that works for any gender.

Classic Nautical

Here, we have classic nautical-themed invitations that feature navy blue and white stripes, an anchor motif, and rope details. Examples include Ahoy, Sailor, Nautical and Ahoy, Sailor, Nautical. These invitations would be perfect for parents who love traditional nautical styles.

Under The Sea

Under this theme, we have the Little Whale Nautical Under the Sea invitation featuring an adorable whale swimming through waves of blue water. This invitation would be perfect for a baby shower with an under-the-sea or ocean-themed party.

Vintage Nautical

The Ahoy! It’s a boy vintage nautical invitation is vintage-inspired and features intricate illustrations of anchors, ropes, and ships. This invitation would be excellent for parents who love vintage styles or for a baby shower with a retro nautical theme.

Gender-Neutral Nautical

These invitations could work well for parents who want to keep their baby’s gender a secret or prefer to stray away from traditional pink-and-blue color schemes. Examples of such invitations include the Blush Little Sailor Nautical Baby Shower Invite and Aqua Boy Little Sailor Nautical Baby Shower Invite. Both feature sailboats on soft pastel backgrounds but in different colors: blush pink and aqua blue, respectively.

Now that you have an idea of the various themes available for sailor baby shower invitations, let’s explore some paper options to complement these designs.

Signature Cardstock vs. Standard Option

Two different categories of paper are available to choose from: signature cardstock and the standard option. Here, we’ll compare the two options.

Signature Cardstock

Tried and true, signature cardstock sets a high bar with its durability and versatility. It’s ideal for all your basic needs and is a great choice for invitations. Mohawk Fine Papers’ Felt White paper is an example of signature cardstock produced in the USA. It has a thickness of 16.6 points and a weight of 110 lb/300 GSM.

The Felt White paper has an embossed woven texture that creates a velvety feel and brilliant white color, making it perfect as an artsy backdrop for your special announcements. Additionally, it’s eco-friendly, made using 100% wind-powered electricity.

Another example of signature cardstock is Mohawk Fine Papers’ Columned paper, which also has a thickness of 15.2 points and weight of 110 lb/300 GSM. Columned is hand-selected from sustainable cotton-blend materials, lending sophistication to formal events with its timeless horizontal fine columned texture.

Standard Option

While classic, the standard option remains economical while serving all your printing needs for invitations such as nautical-themed baby showers. An example is Fedrigoni’s Semi-Gloss paper, produced in Italy with a thickness of 12.5 points and weight of 110 lb/300 GSM. It’s perfect for printing invitations with crisp, vibrant images, exceptional color and detail.

Mohawk Fine Papers’ Matte paper is another example of a standard option produced in the USA with a thickness of 17.5 points and weight of 120 lb/324 GSM. It has an uncoated matte finish that presents a natural feel, while its eggshell texture ensures that colors print softer and more subtle. It’s also eco-friendly, created using 100% wind-powered electricity.

Neenah Inc.’s Laid paper is yet another option for those seeking standard paper options for their invitation needs. Produced in the USA and featuring a ribbed texture from watermarking, it boasts unparalleled craftsmanship that enriches your invitations and announcements with Laid’s bespoke look and feel reminiscent of the first handmade paper.

The above paper options are just some of the many available to choose from when selecting papers for your nautical-themed baby shower invitations.

When planning a sailor-themed baby shower or any occasion, selecting the right invitation cards can be crucial in setting the tone for your event. The various themes available for sailor baby showers include cute animal nautical, classic nautical, under the sea, vintage nautical, and gender-neutral nautical themes.

Additionally, there are different categories of paper options to consider such as signature cardstock vs. standard options. These include Mohawk Fine Papers’ Felt White or Columned papers as examples of signature cardstock options while Fedrigoni’s Semi-Gloss and Mohawk Fine Papers Matte or Neenah Inc.’s Laid papers are examples of standard options.

Whatever theme you may choose to go with for your baby shower invitations, remember to select quality card stock or paper to complement not only the design but also create a lasting impression on your guests about your event organization skills.

A baby shower is a fun way to celebrate the upcoming arrival of a new bundle of joy. Choosing the right theme and invitations can help you create the perfect event. Sailor baby shower invitations are one idea that could provide the perfect atmosphere for your special occasion. But, before you commit to this option, consider the following pros and cons.


  1. The navy blue motif provides a lovely sense of sophistication; ideal for such a special occasion.
  2. Sea life designs such as anchors, whales, and starfish add whimsical touches to the invitation’s design.
  3. A nautical sailor theme appeals mostly to boy baby showers, making it ideal for indoors and outdoors shower celebrations.
  4. These invitations are beautifully designed keepsakes that guests will treasure long after the party is over.


  1. Not everyone will appreciate such a specific type of decoration style, so before sending out invitations, ensure that all attendees will be comfortable with it.
  2. If there are any sentimental land-lovers in the audience, they may not feel as connected to this theme because it is based on maritime culture and imagery.
  3. Because these designs tend to have more detailed artistry than standard invitations, they may also be more expensive, which could affect your budget if you’re not careful.

Whether you decide that nautical themed baby shower invitations are exactly what you need or choose something else entirely, understanding their benefits and drawbacks can help ensure that your special day goes off without a hitch.
