Know someone who loves baseball but is over the age of 12? Look no further than this Vintage Baseball Party! This fun retro theme is great for Father's Day, birthdays, graduation, or any other time you want to put a sophisticated spin on America's Favorite Pastime.
Take a look at the details and printable files (at the very bottom) below!
I covered the table with a wide runner of green felt and interspersed antiqued retro team logos (file below) with 3D baseball stickers from the scrapbook aisle of my local craft store.
Since my husband Dan loves the White Sox, I focused on them, but of course you can feature your favorite. Go a little crazy with your team's logo!
Create a photo station with a green backdrop, and pin a little ivy to the fabric (staples are an effective shortcut). Tuck a 3D baseball embellishment into the ivy...foul ball! Cut out an old fashioned moustache (file below), put it on a stick, and provide your guests with a hat and bat. It's photo time!
Offer items off your local ballpark's menu (sushi in Seattle, garlic fries in San Francisco) or try these variations on the hot dog:
Coney Island chili sauce for hot dogs
Grilled hot dogs with mango chutney and red onion relish
Round it out with ballpark staples like popcorn, peanuts, and pretzels, plus summertime classics like watermelon slices, root beer floats, and bottles of your favorite brew.

To make popcorn cones, draw and cut on the grey lines, then wrap the shape around a disposable cup about 5" tall. Finish with trim. I used 12x12 scrapbook paper. Download Pattern
