Baseball Party

In honor of my son's 12th birthday tomorrow, I am sharing some past birthday parties. This was his 7th birthday celebration. Chasen is a huge baseball fan so this was just a perfect fit for him.
Of course, Dodger dogs were served as well as chips, Cracker Jack, peanuts, soda and Gatorade.

The decor was all in red, white and blue.

The kids made their own personal pennants.

We had a bubble blowing contest with Bazooka bubble gum.

What would a baseball party be without a quick baseball game in the street.

When opening presents, I always have the gift-giver sit right next to the birthday child when opening their gift. It makes the giver feel special and gives them the attention they deserve for being a guest.

I made all of the tags by hand and filled it with lots of baseball stuff.
They had a relay race with plastic baseballs balanced on spoons in their mouths.
Water balloon toss.

My kids love pinatas. They drive me a little nuts. No one has ever got hurt but it still scares me. I really don't want to be on AFV! I'll see if I can dig up his retro bowling party for tomorrow.

These boy party ideas were also featured on Spaceships and Laser Beams.

Another fun party! I too have the kids sit with the birthday boy or girl when they open presents. Then I take a picture and it gets sent to them in the thank you card. That way they can always remember the day.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of having the gift giver sit next to the child so they are honored too. I will start this next year at her party, what a great idea!
