Baseball Party Theme

April 24, 2012

I was looking back at some of Diego’s old pictures and came across his 3rd birthday party! I’m not planning a party right now…just the arrival of baby number #3!! Since I miss Diego as a little baby, I find myself looking at his old pictures often and wonder how time flies.

If you are planning a party and baseball is huge in your house as it is in ours, here is a cute baseball theme that can be used for any age!! Enjoy!

Decorations: All the decorations can be purchased at Party City. I bought the “green field” table cover for a little bit more but you can use a regular green table cover too. The baseball place mats you see on the table corners were purchased years ago from Pottery Barn Kids…they don’t have them anymore but they always have cute baseball stuff!

Cute idea: Living in New York meant meeting friends from all over the world. So we asked everyone in the invitation to wear their favorite baseball team tee or jersey. Teams from The Oakland A’s to the New York Mets were represented. We of course wore our Cubs gear!

The food: All ball park food of course! Including beer in plastic cups for the adults!! We grilled hot dogs in our tiny Tribeca apartment (I’m sure the neighbors loved that) on our small stove-top cast iron grill. I threw frozen pretzels from Whole Foods in the oven, bought peanuts and Cracker Jack boxes from Nationwide Candy online and made sure to have plenty of Baby Ruth chocolate bars!

Diego’s beautiful cake and cupcakes were made by my friend Laila! Aren’t they gorgeous?

Look at Diego’s tiny face!!! They are only little rookies for a bit huh?

Please share other ideas that would have been good for the table! Love to hear your thoughts!

Your friend,

    Okay seriously… you are making me want to throw a baseball theme party for my toddler’s third birthday. He just saw my nephew play in the little leagues and had a ton of fun. Super cute! I’m bookmarking this page for reference 🙂
