Deacon’s “Rookie of the Year” 1st birthday was one for the books! His party was full of sweet, personalized details, fun iconic baseball imagery and decorations that appealed to both adults and children. We hope you find inspiration in the baseball party ideas shared below!
Baseball Party Ideas- Decorations
Party guests were greeted with this personalized, hand-painted wooden baseball sign at the door. I am a huge fan of making a statement about the theme of an event at the door! Once inside the home, guests were encouraged to autograph Deacon’s keepsake bat.
Custom made baseball bat treat stands housed baseball cake balls and rows of fun Cracker Jack boxes. The stunner on the dessert table was most definitely Deacon’s 3-tier birthday cake.
Seated tables in the yard were covered in coordinating lined-burlap linens. Centerpieces were simple containers filled with whole peanuts and topped with personalized pennant flags.
Baseball Party Food & Beverage Ideas
Since Deacon’s birthday party was held over lunch, guests were given the option to create their own DIY hot dogs. I love the idea of simple, theme relevant food and drink for children’s birthday parties. Mini waters were in a galvanized tub labeled “Minor Leagues”, while adult beverages and beers were labeled “Major Leagues”. Guests enjoyed their lunch on paper plates along with personalized wooden spoons and forks.
The streamlined, cohesive look of this party elevated its overall design. When you are choosing elements for your own at-home party, consider keeping the décor fundamentals simple. Then, add fun personalized elements to the décor. We hope you found some inspiration in Deacon’s baseball birthday party ideas!
