Peyton's 1st "Sailabration" Food Decorations

 Decorating the food for this party was super easy.  The most time consuming part was definitely these little boats to serve the goldfish in.  
I started with pink & navy scrapbook paper.  I then used the following instructions found on Pinterest at Big Dot of Happiness.
How To Make A Paper Boat & Anchor Nautical Party Ideas // Free Printable Nautical Paper // #paperboats #nauticalparty #anchors:
I then made all these pink & navy boats & alternated the colors on the table, using them to serve goldfish.
For the sandwiches, I used tiny wooden skewers.  I cut the same scrapbook paper to make right triangles.  I then punched holes in the top & bottom & put the skewer through the paper, making a sail.  

 I used the same method for the cupcakes.  Instead of using wooden skewers for them, I used cute little nautical, navy & pink straws that I found at Marshall's & Hobby Lobby.  The nautical ones went on clearance right after the 4th of July, which worked out great.
 In addition to the sails, I also alternated navy & pink cupcake holders.  I used pink cupcake holders & navy sails & vice versa.
I also used the same method to put sails in the "boats" of spinach dip & buffalo chicken dip.
I also put a sail on top of the boat cake.   
So with some sheets of scrapbook paper, wooden skewers & paper straws, I had the entire party food decorations done.  Super easy & I think it turned out pretty cute.  Happy "sailabrations" y'all!
