Baseball is America’s pastime, and it’s one of the best summer activities! If your little slugger has a big birthday coming up, then celebrate with an all-star Baseball birthday party theme from Birthday Express! Our Baseball Time party packs are the complete party in a box, which makes it easier than ever to hit a grand slam with your party plans.
Read on to see our party tips for this theme!
Forget about those cone-shaped party hats – this is a baseball party! Paper baseball caps are the ultimate party hats, and a perfect fit for this theme. They also make great decorations, hung from the backs of chairs or on walls.
Once you’ve gotten the party started, let the kids step up to the plate and take a swing at this baseball piñata. You’ve heard of grand slams, but this is a candy slam!
If you’re going to throw a baseball birthday party, you’re going to need some peanuts and Cracker Jack (after all, it’s in the song). Our baseball paper cups hold snacks just as well as they do juice and soda, and classic red and white popcorn boxes are a must have to get that ballpark feel.
Party favors ensure all the guests have a great time! Get a baseball themed favor box that includes stickers, baseball erasers, and keychains, or get some empty boxes to fill with your favorite goodies.
Baseball Time invitations can function as tickets for carnival style party games – set up a “knock ‘em down” game with some old cans or weighted plastic bottles, or have a backyard ball toss and see who can land the most pitches in baskets at different distances.
A wire batting cage bucket and a few baseballs makes an amazing party decoration. You can scuff up a new white baseball with sandpaper and stain it with black tea to get an aged, antique look, or you can find old balls at your local thrift shop or Goodwill store.
Decorate a batch of baseball cupcakes for the best dessert ever! We just piped a generous amount of grassy green frosting on to simple yellow cakes, and mini baseball cupcake toppers are a cute detail to add. If you’re feeling extra crafty, you can even create your own edible version from white shimmer gumballs, using a food dye marker to make the laces. Pack up the extras in baseball cupcake boxes for take home treats!
Our giant baseball scoreboard is the finishing touch to your decorations that will knock this party out of the park. It looks just like the real thing, and it will be right at home in any child’s playroom or bedroom after the party.
