Planning my boy's birthdays are always fun. But I have to say this vintage baseball theme was one of my favorites! Max loves baseball and his Mama loves vintage, so it was a perfect fit! I had fun scouring thrift stores and my Mom's storage shed. I also found a couple things online. My sister's co-worker made me this awesome chalkboard sign. I LOVE it! Guests were greeted with an autograph station. They were supposed to sign Max's personalized bat. However, Max had different plans! No one was going to write on his brand new bat! I found mini bats online for the favors. I tied a cute vintage thank you tag on each one. I made them out of a vintage baseball valentine. I thought they turned out cute!
We had to have a candy buffet!
Vintage Double Bubble, Saltwater taffy and Home Sugar Cookies from Glory's Sweets and Treats. They were so scrumptious! I have seriously not tasted a better decorated sugar cookie! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Glorys-Sweets-Treats/283952728404108?fref=ts
I love Hammond's Lollipops and the all natural peppermint ones matched perfectly. I filled the Mason Ball storage jar with red vines. I couldn't wait to use those jars! Max plays on the Cubs this year so I ordered this vintage Cubs bobble head. Like most of the items I found, I just love it! Not only was I able to use it for the party, it is a cute decoration for his room.

The Drink Station
I made pennant flags for the centerpieces. I filled simple paper bags with peanuts and homemade carmel corn.
I went for taste and not fancy decorations with the cake. I got it from Moss Rose, a local bakery that has been around for decades. They make their cakes from scratch and are so so good!
The Birthday Boy!
Headed to the Sandlot.

I loved planning this party, but loved celebrating with this special boy even more!! We all had a blast. The boys played baseball and drank coca cola all day long! It doesn't get much better than that!
