nautical birthday dinner

For my father-in-law’s 65th birthday, I hosted a nautical birthday dinner for our family.  He is an avid sailor and it seemed to be a fitting tribute for the celebration.  I love the striking combination of red, yellow and navy blue.

Many of the touches that I used for the party would be a great for a Labor Day weekend event (like lobster rock candy pops and a lighthouse bucket with wrapped napkin bundles).

I always associate this end of summer celebration with the water, as many in the bluegrass try to soak up a final summer weekend on a Kentucky lake.  Plus, the light brunch menu is great for a summer get-together.

What are your holiday weekend plans?  Do you like to spend the weekend on the water?
