Baseball Party Stamps

Personalize your stamps by using one of the great zazzle baseball stamps.  Please be sure to bring a complete invitation, including all inserts, to a local post office to determine exactly how much postage is required.  If you decide not to customize, please do not mix stamps. It is better to add too much postage than a hodgepodge of mismatched stamps. You have spent so much time and money on every other detail, the difference in price is not worth giving a sloppy first impression.

Baseball Theme Party Table Linens

There are so many great options for a baseball look.   Keep it simple.  Just throw on a white, yellow, blue, green, or red cotton table cloth, or use the colors of your favorite team i.e. Navy Blue, Sand, White (San Diego Padres).  Alternatively, BBJ Linen has a huge selection from which to choose including a 90 inch square cloth called Baseball Your choice will ultimately come down to a combination of what your room looks like and how daring you feel.

If you want to save some money, most venues will supply complimentary white or cream linens; stick with white unless you prefer a more vintage look.  Likewise, if you are hosting a baseball party at your house just about any color linen you have will be fine, in fact, place mats will also work great, and to tell you the truth, individual sheets of scrap booking paper work great and are adorable. Choose any solid colored paper or any of the patterns pictured below. If you are feeling creative and have lots of time, you can even create a layout highlighting your guest of honor.  Alternatively, use your place mats as place cards by creating a page for each of your guests.  Laminate it and tie with personalized ribbon for a complete favor anyone can enjoy.

DIY. These baseball shaped bowls can be filled, to the point of over-flowing, with popcorn,  cracker jacks, or milk chocolate foil wrapped baseballs.  Or, simply add a flowering plant or fresh daisies.

Fun Baseball Theme Party Table Decor

Party Idea Pros love these baseball happy face antenna balls. Consider using them as party favors/table decor or as place cards. Add a colored straw  topped off with a Happy Ball Antenna to each guest’s water glass.  Write your guest of honor’s name and party date on the bottom of the antenna ball.

Baseball Party Napkin Rings

Although far from inexpensive, these charming key rings and moneyclips can double as napkins rings and party favors.

Another great option is to simply skip the napkin rings altogether.  Instead use  Baseball trading cards as napkin decor. Just fold your napkin beautifully and place a baseball card in the pocket.

Call us crazy but we think Silly Bandz should make comeback if for nothing else but that they make playful and inexpensive themed napkin rings! And we always love themed rubber duckies for baby showers and first birthday parties! Write your guests’ names directly on the duck and voila, you have a great place card!

Baseball Party Favors and Place Cards

A baseball party theme lends itself to so many options.  Party Idea Pros could not choose just one best option, so here are a few choices we call the best of the best …  One more thought — party favors can double as place cards when combined with a place card tag or can be used as small tokens of thanks when a thank you tag is attached.
