For a baseball-themed birthday party!
My friend Julie hit a home run with 5-year-old son Austin's recent birthday party. The children loved playing outside at "Knapp Stadium," while the adults watched all the action from the stands. Guests munched on game-day favorites like hot dogs, popcorn, peanuts and nachos. A baseball diamond cake and baseball cupcakes rounded out the menu, and Julie sent us all home with a box of Cracker Jacks. Penned to the tune of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," a poem printed on baseball-glove paper explained that special party favors will be sent through the mail. (Julie took pictures of each child at the party, and plans to send a pack of baseball cards to each guest -- complete with pink bubblegum!)
Mary Ashley and I loved attending Austin's grand-slam party. I think you can tell from all the happy faces in the photos above that Julie hit this one out of the park!
