A Baseball Father's Day Party


Our Father's Day Baseball Party!


The Setup!  Guess my theme!


One must always have a party with a theme!



Do you recognize the Wordles displayed on the table? Click here if you missed the Wordle post.

Baseball Brownie Cupcakes with red M&M's sticking up.
(My 9 year old decorated these!)

Rice Krispie Baseballs with red licorice for the stitches.


A bucket of baseballs help with the theme!


Red strawberries dipped in white chocolate, then dipped in blue sprinkles.

(Snow)Ball cookies.  Powdered sugar cookie recipe with mini chocolate chips.


Home Plate Brownie Cups


Green dyed coconut with sugar wafer cookies cut in the shape of home plate.
(As my 'baseball-lovin' children were helping cut the shapes, they informed me that home plate is located on dirt, not grass...oh well.)


Can't have a baseball party without peanuts and Cracker Jacks.


Tiny cans of Diet Coke with some 'pop' labels made by the kids.
-Pop for you, Pop!
-Pop, open your pop!
-Just for 'Pop'a!
-You're the best, Pop!
-I love you, Pop!


The mantel got a little theme color.
(My sign was made on Wordle.)


A look at the table.


I used plastic Easter egg baseballs and curling ribbon for decor down the table.
Mini baseball hats and baseball cards, too.


My 'awesome' husband grilled some veggies, brats and dogs.


The kids with their Papa and Grandpa.


Of course we had to play some Wii baseball inside and...


when the rain stopped, a bit of catch outside!


Remember we live in Seattle!


A picture with my Dad.
Happy Father's Day, I love you!

  2. So cute! We used your Wordle to make cards for the girls' teachers, for a card for Margot's friend Libby for her birthday, and to make a Father's Day card for Rick. So much fun! We had a nice lunch at Joe's Crab Shack.

  3. Wow - that's an impressive spread! Those guys must have been so lucky - I'm having a sudden craving for cupcakes and I think it might be your fault :)

  7. Hi Michelle,
    I am visiting from The CSI Project Challenge Linky Party. Your baseball party looks fantastic. So much effort, and adorable treats! I especially like the cupcakes with the wafer home plates! Speaking of baseball, I recently altered a pop-up can into a baseball (SF Giants) theme. Would love for you to pop by my blog and check it out at Altered Artworks Take Me Out to the Ballgame
    I'm your newest follower and look forward to continued creative inspiration.

  8. This is awesome--the perfect theme for dads! I am a big fan of Wordles, too, and I love that you incorporated them so beautifully. Since I am from Pittsburgh, you get bonus points for incorporating the word "pop"! {No "soda" around here! ;)} Thank you, thank you, thank you for linking this up at The CSI Project! Have a wonderful weekend!

    ~Abby =)
