Not to long ago I had the pleasure to do a 40th birthday party for a gentlemen. As I have told you before, I always meet with my clients to ask them if they have a special theme in mind. I talked with his wife, and asked if he had any special hobbies or sports that he liked. I found out he is a big New York Yankees fan. So we decided to create a theme around that idea. Planning an adult baseball theme party took a little imagination. So lets step up to the plate and get started!
You can shop the dollar store or your local party store to pickup baseball themed invitations. Or perhaps, you can let your fingers do the walking and send invitations via email. Doing it this way is easy on the budget, and they can be modified to contain the pictures and designs to create a more personalized theme.
I created a large box and made separations in it for popcorn and beer . I attached a strap and had my server come out saying " Popcorn and Beer " The guests couldn't believe it they were in awe..( If you want to surprise your guests this is a great idea! ) I went to my printer, and had him make me baseball bases with the famous New York Yankees past and present players. We scattered them around the party area. I visited my local florist, and had them create a arrangement with grass and a baseball it looked fantastic ! I also took a large glass vase painted it gold and added handles to it. I placed gold fish inside at the party. At the end of the event everyone was fighting over who was taking the fish home. I took astro truff and placed in on the bar table to create the illusion of grass. Oh I almost forgot, we also scattered baseball cards on all the guest tables which I purchased at the at the dollar store.
When your thinking baseball food hamburgers ,hot dogs, potato salad and coleslaw are in order for this type of event .You might even want to set up a hot dog bar with all the different toppings. Drinks might include beer and some sodas. An ice cream cart and a baseball diamond cake are some great dessert ideas also.
Baseball is a great American past time. Add some team spirit and have a few friends helpyou. Together you can create a home run !
