Lincoln's Baseball Party!

This past Saturday, we were blessed with a beautiful, sunny  and warm day as family and friends came to celebrate (our baby) Lincoln's 6th birthday!

The kids (and some parents) enjoyed a game of baseball, ate lunch and cake together, dove for piƱata candy and just enjoyed being outdoors...  


I wanted a vintage baseball feel for the party and used mostly red, white and blue. 

This free pallet - as found (red!) - made an easy backdrop. The tin number six and baseball card sign were purchased at Hobby Lobby. I made the little pennant banner out of ticking material and twine.


This "Concessions" banner is a free printable and can be found here. (Thank you Liz!)


In keeping with the baseball theme, we served hot dogs, potato chips, watermelon and veggies. We don't typically drink a lot of soda. So, as you can see, Lincoln and his buddy weren't wasting any time downing their orange-flavored Fantas! ;)


The vintage-inspired "Ice Cream Soda" sign I had bought last year from Pottery Barn...


Balloons and a Babe Ruth cardboard cutout (that I found at an antique shop) were in front of our driveway so that guests could find the party more easily...




The kids table...


In case you missed it, I wrote about the pallet flag, chalkboard score board and our DIY baseball field here.



Our birthday boy's nickname is "Cubby" - - 
the reason he is wearing a Chicago Cubs uniform! :)


Play ball!





For favors, the kiddos took home a base set (Dollar Tree), bat and ball (Dollar Tree), Cracker Jacks (Dollar Tree) and Big League Chew (Amazon).



It was a happy day, celebrating our little boy who brings our family so much joy...

Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Thanks so much Cindy... I have fallen off of the scrapbook wagon! I occasionally do the My Publisher books and the boys love looking through them!

  4. OMG! That is such a nice "old fashioned" boys birthday party. I love all the details that you thought of. The parting gifts couldn't be more perfect too. I loved the cake! I'm sure your son had a great day with all of your special planning that went into it.

    1. So sweet Kelly, thank you. It was a lot of fun and Lincoln loved it! Clean up... was not quite as fun, since we hauled out a bunch of furniture to the pasture... but well worth it!

  6. I love your baseball themed party Julie. Makes me wish my little man had a 6th birthday coming up. Your attention to detail is amazing. Love the Babe Ruth sign in your driveway to flag party goers. And what little boy wouldn't love a baseball game and those wonderful party favors? Again thank you so much for sharing at SYS!
