5 Nautical Props for Your Next Charter

Posted on May 17, 2018

When planning a boat party, it’s hard to resist a fun nautical theme. Here are five playful prop ideas to delight guests and up your nautical cred. Do all five to reach nautical nirvana.

Boat Drink Holder

From nautical glassware (check out Festive Frog for eclectic vintage finds), to drink holders shaped like a boat, incorporate nautical into your food and drink presentation.

Nautical Photo Booth

Who doesn't love a photo booth? Go all out nautical with a captain's wheel, captain's hat...even a fake seagull. Pictured: an actual photo booth set-up aboard our vessel. Check out Fotio for cool, vintage open-air photo booths. 

Photo Props

An alternative to a formal photo booth set-up, just grab these paper cutout props for snapping fun photos anywhere on the boat. Bonus - use them on the upper deck for a built-in, beautiful city backdrops!
