NY Yankees Baseball Party

My son turned 10 a few weeks ago and decided he wanted to have a Yankee baseball party.

Always one for a party, I started brainstorming ways to make his party fun & creative.

I ordered these amazing invitations from Fun Invites on Etsy. I received so many calls about these invitations...the guests were fascinated by them.


For security reasons, I smudged out our address.

I hung a "clothesline" of baseball cards.


Here is the tablescape I came up with:


Oh how I wish you could have seen my husband's face when I told him I wanted that green indoor/outdoor carpeting stuff. I know he was thinking, "Oh no, she's lost her mind!" When he found out it was going to be my tablecover, I knew he secretly loved the idea.

We had Grandy's Slam Peanuts and Jeter's Jacks. Of course, we had to have Baby Ruth bars. (Although I do know they were not actually named for The Babe.)


Gardner's Seeds.


What Yankee party would be complete without Mo's Closer Punch #602?


It was hard to come up with an idea for decorating a basic bundt cake. Scrapbook supplies to the rescue!


C.C. Sabathia's Cupcakes.


Here is the table with all the food including Posada's Pizza, Swishalicious Chips & Dipalicious, Teixeira's Tenders and Cano's Corn.


Honestly, my son just stood in front of the table and stared. He was speechless. My daughter said I should be an event planner. The guests (98% Yankee fans...there's always 1 or 2 Red Sox fans lurking about) adored it, so I think I pulled it off.


It was a celebration fit for any Yankee fan. Now if they could have only won the ALDS and made it into the World Series, our celebration would have been even happier!

Gina,
You SHOULD be a party planner! That was an adorable theme. I love the invitations. It'll be a party your son won't soon forget. My babies are all grown and I so miss planning their parties.

Gina, this is genius! Every detail was so well thought out. Will you adopt me? Don't let the fact that I'm old enough to be your mother cloud your thinking. :)

I adore your Yankee table. It's so creative and fun!

I have been a Yankee fan all my life. As a child I went to almost every game with my dad.

Hi Gina. I am a huge, huge Yankee fan. You did a great job. I am sure your son was very happy. Although I guess he is not happy the Yanks did not make it this year to the World Series.

Kathleen said...

That looks great! Yes, too bad they lost. I am not a fan, of them or anyone. DH is a Red Sox fan. Very hard for a NYer!
