PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jenny
;

My son Luke is all boy, so when he said he wanted to play ball for his 7th birthday, I knew it was the perfect theme. I wanted it to be bright, bold and graphic. He helped choose a color scheme of red, navy, green and orange.

We created a Dugout for the boys to eat lunch in. I sewed yards and yards of pennants to hang from the roof of our “dugout” and covered the picnic table in fake grass. I made a hat rack to display baseball caps monogramed with a 7 which served as party favors. The boys each had their own take out boxes with sliders (hamburgers), handballs (strawberries), basketballs (Cheetos balls) and equipment (utensils).

At the refreshment stand the boy could grab baseballs (donut holes) or footballs (pretzels) and a drink from the minors bucket which I made with my Silhouette machine. Grown-up had a special Grand Slam drink to celebrate the occasion.

Dessert was set up on a concession stand. I have used this same stand at several of my parties. I worked with Edible Details to recreate the balls on the invite for the top of the cake. I also made basketball cupcakes and chocolate covered Oreos with fondant toppers. Football and baseball cookies, crackerjacks, peanuts and vanilla shakes filled out the table.

The yard was surrounds by a dozen 36 inch balloons and filled with solid beach balls. The boys had a blast playing volleyball, handball and just being boys.
