While working on an inspiration board for a client, I stumbled upon this most charming of all baseball parties from Katie's Pencil Box. Katie graciously allowed me to share it here, and I'm sure you'll be as thoroughly smitten as I was...
From Katie: Max's baseball birthday party was a real hit! (ugh. no pun intended.. haha). It was a perfect summer night with good food (hot dogs and shish kabobs grilled by matt and his dad// bags of popcorn and caramel corn// and a table full of sweets), funny music (thank you andrews sisters...i'll never get tired of seeing little ones run around to old music), and amazing friends and family. We sat around and watched the kids scoot about, playing backyard baseball, and dodging stray balls until the sun went down. We made a little concession stand awning out of ikea fabric and tent poles that we had laying around // a photo cut out board from this image // cherry vanilla, peanut butter, and dark chocolate old timey mustaches on a stick// felt pennants on dowel rods and white paper pennant banners (ran through my sewing machine with red thread) to hang outside// i found vintage baseball card images online that i printed off on a thick cardstock for max's friends...and made little canvas drawstring bags for them to stuff with a baseball and sweets to take home. It was a perfect party for our baseball-loving little guy.
