Baseball regular season started A few weeks ago and around my house that is a big deal. My husband played in high school and college and still enjoys playing on city league softball teams – not to mention playing MLB The Show on his PS3 and watching baseball as often as he can. We love going to major league games and plan our travels around them most of the time.
I did this for my husbands birthday party a few years ago but whether you are celebrating a birthday, Father’s Day or even just having a party to watch a big game – these ideas will help turn it from a generic party into one that is fun and themed without too much work (that’s the best kind, right?)!
I made a pennant banner and photo banner using black and white photos from his baseball playing days. (Pictured above)
Guests were invited to fill a treat bag with traditional ball field treats: licorice, sunflower seeds, big league chew bubble gum, peanuts and chips.
We served grilled J Dawgs (a local hot dog company – did you know you could order them in bulk to-go?), with all the fixings: onions, pickles, banana peppers, jalapenos, sauerkraut and special J Dawgs sauce all on the delicious buns they provided.
Once everyone had their plates we turned on the game and had a great time celebrating!
