A Backyard Baseball Birthday Bash: The Decor

On Sunday we had Levi's party! It was a gorgeous day for an outside party! We had it at our house and everything turned out awesome!! Picking the theme for his party was a no brainer! This child is a baseball fanatic, like his brother! All he ever wants to do is swing a bat or throw a ball! So once the theme was settled it was time to get the ball rolling, ha!
Due to the insane amount of pictures, I've broken the party into two posts: the decor & set-up, and the actual party pics!
It all started with the invite! I made all the printables for the party, including the invite, and I love how they turned out!

I knew I wanted a baseball themed wreath, and I thought I wanted baseballs, but last minute browsing at Hobby Lobby changed my mind, and I wound up with this!! I loved the red striped burlap and couldn't pass it up!!

On their way to the backyard, party guests made a stop at the autograph station! I love this little keepsake for his room!

The mantel! I borrowed Lane's bat and some baseballs and we were good to go!

This was the cake table!

I have had this frame above Levi's changing table since he was born, so I just swapped out the pictures and added the invite!

Gotta have these at a baseball party!

This was the snack/favor table! 

All the adults left with a box of Cracker Jacks!

Had to have some subway art!

All the kids left with personalized plastic bats and balls! Thank you Dollar Tree, ha!

And this was the "Concession" table....otherwise known as the food table! I hadn't put the food out yet, but you get the idea! The baseball lanterns were supposed to be hung, but the wind just wouldn't cooperate, so I  pulled them down last minute and just stuck the somewhere!

I loved the fact that I was able to use so much of our stuff around the house and some of Lane's baseball equipment! It made it super easy to decorate!!

This birthday bash baseball themed d├ęcor is looking fabulous. I needed some decoration ideas. Actually it is my son’s 10th birthday and I would like to throw a grand party at most popular New York Event Venues for this bash. Your theme is very inspirational and I would love to use this for his birthday.
