Summertime always makes us crave time spent on the water, and this nautical baby shower transports us to the shore. Thrown by Christine Zohrabians of Fancy That! Events for her sister-in-law, the shower celebrated a soon-to-arrive little sailor in colorful style. "My sister-in-law always loved the color navy and wanted more of a bold baby shower instead of the typical baby blue," Christine says.

Cool table linens and flowers, clever signage, and a gorgeous cake are just a few of our favorite elements from this outdoor event, beautifully photographed by Melody Melikian.
