“A League of Her Own” Girly Baseball Party Details:
This is what Vivian said about planning the party- ”Creating the perfect party for my 8 year old daughter, Katie, was a year in planning. With a soon-to-be eight year old and a girl the party themes changed often, from a circus party, to a garden party, and even a spa party. It was quite the surprise when Katie asked to follow her older brother’s footsteps and have a baseball themed party for her 8th birthday. Once she was set on the theme, thoughts of the 1992 movie “A League of Her Own” starring Tom Hanks & Geena Davis came into my head and I knew instantly that this was the type of party theme I needed to plan. Anders Ruff created the perfect vintage baseball themed invitations and printable set. To create a stadium-like atmosphere in the tablescape, I used vintage-style crates, baskets, and other miscellaneous props. AA lot of DIY projects – handsewn uniforms, backpacks, trading cards, awning, concession trays, scoreboard and stand, pennant flags and gumball machin es, locker cabinet. Kept it simplistic and traditional with snacks that are normally provided at a baseball stadium along with special treats served requested by the birthday girl (lemon raspberry cupcakes and mini cherry cheesecakes). Props were purchased at JoAnns, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Cost Plus World Imports, and various grocery stores. Some props purchased were recreated to give an old fashioned look. Party attendees were then transported to Minor League Baseball stadium where they watched a game and took pictures in the dugout! Katie also got the honor of being the fan of the night where she was interviewed on the field and on the big screen during the 4th inning. It was an exciting and memorable night for Katie and friends”.
