1. Baseball Birthday Party Invitations

Making invitations is not as hard as it may seem. Instead of purchasing them, you can have a personalized touch with your inviting cards. 

If you are pretty good at drawing, let your invitations be hand-crafted. Or else you can go to Pinterest and pick your favorite baseball-themed invitation designs. They are all available and free to download.

1.1. Baseball Ticket Invitations

Let’s create a sport or event-type ticket with your child’s name as the main event. For example, there are many baseball tickets – make a mock copy of your favorite team’s ticket.  You can go to Pinterest for more creative examples.

2. Baseball Birthday Party Ideas – Decorations

2.1. Baseball Color Theme

The party area is the main space where everyone gathers around to have fun and chit-chat. You can decorate this area with the colors of your child’s favorite baseball team. Or else red, white, and blue are a safe option as they go well with a generic baseball party theme.

2.2. Decorative Accessories

Don’t forget to include a baseball banner, pennants, and posters of your child’s favorite teams and players in the decor. They are little things that make the birthday party more perfect.

2.2.1. Baseball banner

The baseball banner should be personalized with your child’s name on it to make him or her feel like an MVP because he or she is the star today, not someone else, right? So let’s write the name in a stunning color like red or yellow to be highly outstanding at the birthday party.

2.2.2. Pennants

You may use pennants to decorate the party area or to make a banner out of them one by one. These are very simple to make because all you need is some colored paper and sharp scissors. Pennants are accessible on the internet marketplaces such as Etsy and Amazon if you aren’t particularly creative.

2.2.3. Front door decor

The biggest mistake people often make is ignoring the front entrance decor. Don’t leave the deadly door blank. The perfect idea is to greet guests as they arrive by accenting the main door with a collection of bats and a basket full of balls.

Additionally, let’s create an eye-catching wreath by layering a floral wire form with baseball cards and mini baseballs.

3. Baseball birthday party activities

It’s undeniable that kids love games. So why don’t we celebrate small games during the party?

3.1. Ball in the hole

Keep the team busy by taking them outside for pitching practice. The throw board is simply a sheet of beadboard paneling with shapes jig-sawed in the center.

This game will be a fun way for everyone at the party to stay active and have a blast at the same time! And they get to show off their pitching!

3.2. World Series Game

In this game, everyone will need paper and a pencil.  Ask them to write down as many of the World Series winners – and the years! – that they can.  Present the winner with a small prize or baseball cards.

3.3. Sliding practice

Why don’t you join in this activity and see who can slide the furthest? This is such an exciting activity that it will undoubtedly bring everyone together. But, be ready because the game is a big drain on everyone’s energy, indeed.

If you provide food that matches your baseball party theme, it will hit your guests. Still confused? We’ve got a few ideas for you.

4.1. Concession stand

Make sure your guests know where to get their snacks by hanging a concessions banner across the table front.

4.2. Concession menu

What’s even better is that you can design a concession menu with a “so-called” price and place it on the party table.

Usually, the guests just come to the concession stands and serve themselves. But it’s much more enjoyable now as they have to exchange something like a smile or a high five to get a treat.

4.3. Edible baseball donuts

You can pre-order plain white icing donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts or a local grocery store a few days before the party. So please pick them up early and turn them into baseballs using red melted chocolate! These are so incredibly easy to make and are sure to be a huge hit.

A piece of wall art will make the perfect addition to any baseball lovers’ room.

5.3. Baseball bat rack

It appears that part of being a baseball fan is having an extensive collection of baseball memorabilia such as balls, bats, and baseball caps. Your sweetheart will need a display area for these items.

So this baseball bat rack is going to be perfect for them. They won’t have to throw the balls or bats somewhere in their room any longer.

5.4. Baseball tumbler

Some people tend to present baseball mugs, but why don’t we consider a baseball tumbler. Your son and daughter can only use cups at home since they are pretty fragile.

With a tumbler, everything is more flexible, indeed. It can be carried along with your sweetheart to the ballpark.

What about making it more personal by customizing your son or daughter’s name onto the tumbler and any meaningful quotes that may lift their spirit?

5.5. Baseball mitt candle

Only when the hottest season comes can we enjoy a happy time playing baseball. So to remind baseball fans of summertime and baseball season all year round, giving a baseball mitt candle as a birthday present is such a unique idea.

Whenever they light up the candle, it will come off a leather-based scent that smells like an actual baseball glove.
