If you are planning a birthday party for your little baseball fan, a party theme surrounding the great American pastime may be just the ticket. In order to plan the perfect event, there are several options to consider. Where and when will the birthday party be held? How many invitations will be sent? What type of food and activities will be available to guests? If you live near a party supply store, this will be an excellent way to find birthday party decorations and invitations. Otherwise, the world wide web provides a literal shopping mall at your fingertips.
In selecting a location for the baseball-themed birthday party, consider a local stadium, ballpark or softball field where the children can enjoy participating in a quick game. If this is the selected location, it’s a good idea to take the upcoming weather into consideration. Unless you want the big game to be rained out, select a day with predicted sunshine. A local batting cage may also be a fun idea for a birthday party surrounded by the theme of baseball.
No birthday party is complete without the proper decorations. With a baseball theme, the party may include a round cake in the design of a baseball or a sheet cake created to look like a playing field. As for the table decorations, themed plates, cups and napkins will be a big hit. Now that the decorations are chosen, the obvious food for a baseball birthday party would be hot dogs. If the party is held outdoors, grilling would be ideal.
If you have the financial resources to do so, you may consider hiring a professional coach or athlete to appear at the birthday party. An appearance fee will likely be required and will be determined based on the popularity of the celebrity, their time spent, travel distance and other factors. In addition to being a memorable guest of the birthday party, the presence of a professional athlete or coach will also provide plenty of photo opportunities.
When all of the plans are confirmed, the invitations should be mailed. Birthday party invitations should indicate several very specific factors, including the date, time and place of the event. If planning a baseball theme, perhaps the invitation image would convey the same. If the majority of guests are enrolled in school, the best time to hold the party would likely be on a Saturday. If you are concerned about having enough food and refreshments to go around, it may be a good idea to request that every prospective guest RSVP with their plans.
