End of Season Baseball Party

The saddest day of the year, is the day baseball season ends…so let’s have an kickin baseball party to celebrate the end of baseball season in style!!

My husband coaches my sons little league team so we decided last year to have an end of the season party for the team & their families!  It was a perfect evening and everyone had a wonderful time!  We started early in the afternoon for a parents vs. kids wiffle ball game at my sons school…boy are those dads competitive!!  I do believe the kids won though! 🙂 We then came back to our house for the kiddos to play and get their grub on!  We had the pool up for the boys to take a dip and cool off, they got some more energy released on the trampoline and what’s a baseball party without hamburgers, hot dogs, peanuts & popcorn right!!! We topped off the evening with a movie under the stars “The Sandlot”!  What a Great evening it was!!!

Here is the invitation I made for the party…this picture was taken when we had them all together right after their individual and team professional pictures were taken!!

Indians Invite

First up…Father/Son Wiffle Ball game!  I put “parents vs kids” on the invite but the mommies kind of backed out! 😉  Maybe it’s because they saw how competitive those men were!

I had a blast preparing for the party…so many fun ideas out there for baseball parties, can’t wait to have another one this year!  I ended up scoring as for my son’s (who is now 8) 1st birthday party we had a baseball theme.  I just happen to save the roll of green plastic table covering, had tons of fun hot dog holders for the kids’ hot dogs, and I saved all the baseball & pendant cutouts that I hung on the windows! (One of those times you are happy you are a hoarder)!  lol  The red, white and blue pin wheels below I had bought for the 4th of July, they looked super cute stuck in some of the snacks!  We had licorice, peanuts (in the shell of course) and my kids love those red and white striped peppermints and I just happened to have those in my cupboard.  I made cute food tags for each of the containers and glue dotted them on! I cut out the red banner from scrapbook paper spelling out the word “Baseball” and hung it up with twine!  I had a friend give me a whole watermelon so I attempted to cut it out like a baseball glove…and did a pretty good job I might add!  I then placed it in an actual baseball glove serving dish that I had and I filled them both with the watermelon & extra fruit…it was a huge hit!  We also had red, white & blue sugar cookies & star shaped sugar cookies…gotta have sweets!  (Not pictured we also had baseball tattoos), the boys thought they looked pretty cool all tattooed up!
