Sage's 1st Sail-lebration!

While we are vacationing in Turks and Caicos for my daughter's 2nd birthday today, I am reflecting on her 1st birthday!  How time flies!!



Dr. Man wanted an unique 1st birthday party for his little girl.  We thought about having it in a ballroom in Northern NJ that overlooked the NYC skyline.  He thought that would be too similar to our gender reveal party (coming soon to the blog) that we had in Philadelphia.  His idea was to have it on a yacht for our closest family and friends.  After touring some yachts thanks to Prestige Yacht Charters, we chose The Lexington due to its modern sitting area downstairs, as well as the dance floor and opening to the outside upstairs.



I centered the theme around the pink and grey sailing invitations, as well as Sage's outfits for her day.




Despite being a 1st birthday party, I still wanted to guests to have a "grown-up feel."  As they entered the yacht, they were ushered upstairs and greeted with their choice of white wine, champagne, or water.



I was overjoyed with the floral design by Langdon Florist in the main dining area downstairs, as well as upstairs.





I absolutely loved the cake that went so well with our sailing theme!





I am obsessed with little details...






The food and the views from The Lexington were delicious and breathtaking respectively.









Their attention to detail was top notch and they even provided guests with a ice cream bar!



They also provided a slide show to display images of Sage throughout the months.



Steel pan music rocked the boat throughout the day!



Most importantly, Dr. Man and I were able to create memories with family and friends on a gorgeous day for our Baby Sage!
