Nautical by Nature

Bring a touch of the high seas to your event.

No matter what the season, the nautical trend is an easy one to embrace. With its crisp white-and-navy color palette, the theme can be dressed up or down. Add gold and silver décor and you’ve got a high-end design that works as a substitute for the usual black and white. Or go full-on maritime with anchors, sailor’s rope and under-the-sea accents. Here are some of our favorite nautical ideas from the Inspiration Gallery.

Color Boost 

 In this bright table setting, the nautical navy-and-white theme is used as the base, while coral and golden-yellow touches provide a pop of color to liven things up.

Bring the Buckets

 Other lunches would pale in comparison to this beach-y offering. Even if you’re not close to the ocean, you can bring the beach to your indoor boardroom meeting with a cheeky take on the lunch break.

Sandy and Simple

Can’t get to the shore? No biggie — create your own! These centerpieces are like their own little beaches, complete with sand, seashells and a pop of blue that gives a sophisticated nautical touch. Put them on the boardroom table, stage them in a line or add a few to the registration or welcome desk at your big event.

Easy Breezy

A setup like this, with its breezy white canopies and rustic seating options, can be recreated in nearly any venue. That beach view? As easy as hanging a large television or portrait!
