Baseball Party Foods

If you've followed my blog for some time, you know that I've put on quite a few baseball themed parties.  AH (Awesome Husband) can't get enough of the sport and it's always his party theme of choice.  It's starting to get harder and harder to come up with new baseball party ideas, but never fear---I've chalked up another one.

It's a clever baseball party with lots of baseball food ideas.
And of course, the Seattle Mariners gear makes an appearance in every one of my baseball parties!  Go M's!



Foods for a baseball party.

Let's start with the cards, not baseball cards, but Father's day cards. This party was for Father's Day, so we put all the handmade cards for dad in a glove and labeled it 'Card Catcher'.  (A catcher's glove would have been even more perfect, but we don't have one of those!)

Next up, the refreshments...2 pitchers with their appropriate labels. The starting pitcher, filled with water.  The relief pitcher, filled with lemonade.

Onto the snacks.  Every baseball party has to have Cracker Jacks. Baseball, Cracker Jacks-- they just go together.

Another great baseball food...pickles?! (You know what this is, right?)

And don't forget about the chips and salsa.  I gathered 4 levels of salsa to try out.
1st base- mild salsa
2nd base- medium or hot salsa
3rd base- very hot salsa
Home- 5 alarm salsa!

It was fun to see how far we could go around the bases with our salsa eating.  I made a 'pitcher's mound' with the blue chips in the middle.

Another chip dipping option was a corn salsa...because of the baseball term, can of corn.  (That's what they call a pop up--just in case you're not baseball fan.)

Salami roll ups were a fun and easy snack, made even more festive with the baseball picks.

Of course we served sliders for the meal.  Choose between a single, double or triple!

To go with the sliders, you'll need a suicide squeeze...or two!

Best candy to serve...Mounds bars!

The perfect cake to serve at a baseball party is a bundt (bunt) cake.  I made a simple chocolate/chocolate chip cake in a bundt pan and splattered it with icing.

Finish off the meal with a spitball.  (Extra large gumballs).

Wrapping paper hung with large baseball cutouts made a fun backdrop for the food and the photo shoot.  Just move the food table out of the way and snap a few pictures.
