Introduction and Party Invitations
Take Me Out to the Ball Game… so goes the famous song that everyone loves during those lazy, hazy days of summer taking in America’s favorite pastime. Whether your child plays the game or simply loves to take in a ball game during the summer, a baseball party is a perfect theme for a hot summer’s day.
This is a great party to host at an actual baseball game for the birthday child and his or her friends to enjoy. For a budget-friendly option, consider a minor league game. Whether it’s a major or minor league game you take the kids out to enjoy, they are sure to have a blast.
If you are hosting this party at a baseball game, create Baseball Ticket Invitations. Make small ticket invitations using your favorite team colors and request that the guests bring their tickets to gain entrance to the party. On your ticket, write the date of your child’s party as the ticket seat. As an example, Seat 6, Row 15, Section 09. The date of your party will be June 6, 2009.
Use thematic language for the kids to get into the spirit: Take me out to the Ball Game…Take _____ (birthday child name) and _____ (party guest name) out to the game! Help this slugger celebrate his/her birthday!
Alternatively, if you are holding a baseball party at a local park or in your own backyard, create Baseball Invitations. Using heavy cardstock in your team’s colors, create two round circles and hole punch the top of the balls. Using a gold fastener, attach the two balls together and decorate the outer circle to look like a baseball and on the inside of the card on the second ball write your party details. Make sure to ask your birthday child to autograph these baseballs.
Remember to request that the party guests come dressed in their favorite team colors and to bring their baseball gear.
