The MLB All Star game is coming up on July 10, and no sport is more ingrained in summer tradition than baseball. After all, they don’t call it America’s pastime for nothing! From little league to company teams, people of all ages love and play baseball. Summer marks a perfect time to get together with a group of good friends and have a baseball theme party to watch the All Star game or a game between favorite teams! Other options include throwing a baseball theme party after a little league game or after a company league event. Don’t forget about including a baseball theme as a great birthday party choice! Below are some tips for having a baseball theme party from Windy City Novelties:
Root for the Home Team: A variety of Major League team paper goods and baseball decorations are available for most teams. Choose from a variety of paper plates, cups, and napkins that represent a favorite team’s colors and logo. Generic baseball patterns can be used if this is an All Star Game Party or other baseball related event. Deck guests out in all kinds of team colors with fun accessories like wigs or face paint, just like if everyone was at the game. Don’t forget some fun noisemakers like hand clappers and whistles!
Two Strikes and Bases Loaded: Baseball games are intense. When the home team is behind, guests may need to unwind. Baseball shaped stress balls are perfect for this and double as a party favor. Toss them around during nerve-wracking moments or make a game out of it. Blow up inflatables like baseball bats are always fun too. When they hit the big home run, make sure to cheer loudly!
Hot Dogs, Over Here!: Start up the grill and cook up some park-style dogs. Serve with some fresh lemonade and other ball park favorites, and it’ll be like having a day in the stands. Make sure to have plenty of cool drinks if people are playing baseball outside! If this is a team gathering after a game, the players are going to be thirsty and starving!
Swing, Batter, Batter: Stage a mini pickup game in the backyard. Some baseball bats and balls are really all that’s needed, and get the kids involved! For fun, have guests wear shirts or hats from their favorite teams, divide them up by National League or American League, and have a mini All Star Game!
There is an assortment of ways to have a baseball party and there’s no better time to do it than late June/early July. It’s a game beloved by both young and old, so be sure to include the whole family. Batter up!
