Finally! A post on Cayson’s baseball birthday party!
I am happy to report the birthday boy had a blast and promptly asked for his 4th birthday party to be basketball… and tomorrow. I’d say it’s a success when the birthday child can’t wait for their next birthday party! That’s why I put love and effort into their celebrations!
It all started with these invitations on etsy. They turned out great – I was able to print them at home on cardstock and cut them out. I loved that they were the size of real baseball tickets.
I used my handy Wilton dessert tower for cupcakes. I started out putting a baseball motif paper on it but it was just a bit too busy so I went with the grass green to reflect the feel of a baseball field. I wanted my mother-in-law’s cupcakes to POP!
I found this cute ribbon at Hobby Lobby and used hot glue to attach it to two of the layers and tried double sided glue on the other two. Both worked fine – just don’t get your hot glue too hot or it will melt the plastic. It just pops off when you’re done so no harm to the tower.
I made the baseball topper with felt, ric rac, cardboard and a popsicle stick. I hot glued it to the tower too.
The tables all sported peanuts because what is baseball without peanuts? I found these tins in the Dollar Spot at Target.
I put out a plea for baseballs on Facebook last minute and our cousin, Becky, came through with a huge bucket of them! They were perfect in this planter on the food table.
Cayson is still talking about his baseball field cake!
I featured a few fun favorites for baseball on the table – sunflower seeds, Double Bubble gum, and wax soda bottle candy.
The party favors included Cracker Jacks, mini-water bomb baseballs (Dollar Tree), baseball rubber ducks, baseball tattoos, wax bottle candy (all Oriental Trading Co).
You can see how we made the bean bag toss here.
I found the hot dog trays on eBay to add some baseball nostalgia.
The table got a bit crowded once the hotdogs made it there. AND, the tablecloth is so wrinkled. The weather was not cooperating so I kept taking it out, then it would start sprinkling, so I’d bring it in… I should have ironed it again, I suppose.
The pinata was such a hit… literally with the kiddos. I got it from Oriental Trading but noticed Target has them too.
A happy birthday boy = a successful birthday party!
