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.)
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!
