So after a year of telling me that he was going to Chuck E. Cheese for his 7th birthday, my son Luke told me he wanted to play ball for his party. I immediately knew this was the perfect theme for him and was more than happy to accommodate his change of heart. I wanted it to be bright, bold and graphic. He helped choose a color scheme of red, navy, green and orange which were carried throughout the party.
We created a Dugout for the boys to eat lunch in. I sewed yards and yards of pennants to hang from the roof of our “dugout” and covered the picnic table in fake grass. I made a hat rack to display baseball caps monogrammed with a 7 which served as party favors. The boys each had their own take out boxes with sliders (hamburgers), handballs (strawberries), basketballs (Cheetos balls) and equipment (utensils).
At the refreshment stand the boy could grab baseballs (donut holes) or footballs (pretzels) and a drink from the minors bucket which I made with my Silhouette machine. Grown-up had a special Grand Slam drink to celebrate the occasion.
Dessert was set up on a concession stand. I have used this same stand at several of my parties. I worked with Edible Details to recreate the balls on the invite for the top of the cake. I also made basketball cupcakes and chocolate covered Oreos with fondant toppers. Football and baseball cookies, cracker jacks, peanuts and vanilla shakes filled out the table.
The yard was surrounds by a dozen 36 inch balloons and filled with solid beach balls. The boys had a blast playing volleyball, handball and just being boys.
Here’s a little smash cake I made covered in green sprinkles (easy grass).
Happy day despite severely spraining my ankle and a broken camera. Time really does fly:)
Bitty bags, plastic bottles, gum ball tubes, bakers twine, straws and balloons are also available in my shoppe
