For our third and final nautical theme inspiration post, we look to our very own Lake Michigan. We think of lighthouses, lanterns, sandy dunes, beach volleyball and folks relaxing out on their boats with beers and hotdogs.
We also think of life-savers, and not just the ones on boats. We learned that the famous Lifesavers candy is celebrating 100 years in 2012. The Wrigley company adopted the Lifesavers brand in 2004, adding this popular treat to Chicago's iconic candy history. They would make great guest favors wrapped up in a cute nautical theme bags or boxes.
Bell's Brewery, located in Kalamazoo, makes Third Coast Beer, with great packaging with 24 different labels that map all of Lake Michigan's coastline. They would add a nice touch to any lakeside wedding in our region.
We also spotted these cute nautical decor items, the white lanterns and sailboat candle holders, on Beau-Coup.
