Score a Home Run Success with a Baseball Baby Shower Theme
Are you planning a shower for a mum-to-be expecting a baby boy? There’s nothing more boyish than a baseball theme to welcome the arrival of the new member of the family. Baseball is the all-American sport often used as main theme for baby boys. A baseball baby shower is easy to accomplish with lots of inspirations to set the stage promising a home run success.
Invitation that Covers the Bases
Save money by creating your own baby shower invitations. If you’re a crafty scrapbooker, chances are you’ll have lots of cardstocks and other art supplies to tailor made invites to fit the baseball theme. The invitations can be shaped as baseball mitt, helmet, bat and ball, or diamond. You can be as flexible as you want in creating unique and personalized invitations to give guests the idea of what to expect. This effectively helps them in choosing the perfect baby gifts based on the specified theme.
Use clever wordings such as “Come cheer for ______ (mum’s name) upcoming batter!” With that, suggest that guests come wearing their favourite baseball team uniforms or colours. That makes them ready to pitch and circle the bases to score a run.
Decorations for Your Baseball Field
A smart idea is to hang up jerseys, little football caps and other football gear across the party area. It is a way of reminding guests who’s the champion little leaguer to reckon with. Decorate the space with balloons, foam sports fingers, baseball placards, team pennants, and other wall hangings that scream the baseball theme.
For the buffet table, a fake green turf or vinyl can achieve the look of a football field when lined with white pen. Try to get football helmets from party supply stores to make excellent serving bowls and trays to delight the guests. Place a large stuffed animal to serve as the day’s mascot and to provide a soft “baby” touch to the entire scene.
Food and Drinks for the Outfielders
Baseball games conjure images of hot dogs, burgers, and chips sold in the bleachers. Go for the same staples and serve this sort of food to guests. Take the menu to some heights by offering chicken wings with bleu cheese dressing as well as fruit/veggie wedges with cheese and chili dips. Tempt figure-conscious guests with ball-shaped cupcakes and the darling centerpiece of a cake that comes in diaper shape.
A baseball baby shower is not the time for a boring guestbook. Instead, ask everyone to sign a new baseball with a permanent marker. As the celebration ends, hand over the ball to the mum-to-be. It doesn’t only knock her socks off, but she also gets to keep the autographed ball so she can later tell her boy who came to welcome him during the baby shower.
