TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME- Baseball Party

This red, white, and blue party is an All-American winner!  Sara, of The Homespun Hostess/Party Papers, put together a fun-filled birthday party for her son and knocked it out of the park!  With baseball being Sara's son's favorite sport, it was an easy choice to invite his baseball team to the park for a game- and Sara set up the party in the pavilion.  I love how detailed and stylish this party is while also keeping a laid-back vibe...perfect for a birthday boy and his baseball team!

ADD A SPARK TO INDEPENDENCE DAY

Adding a spark to your party for Independence Day can be fun, easy, and CUTE!

An ALL-AMERICAN COKE looks even more patriotic with bottle wrappers from Lauren McKinsey Designs~

I love all of the new items Lauren McKinsey Designs has added for this collection!

I used her cute banner to make straw decorations.  Just use a hole puncher to make a hole in the top and bottom of the paper and slide straw through holes.  This works equally well with paper straws from Hey Yo Yo or plastic striped straws found at the grocery store!

Of course, the ice cream cone wrappers liven up the cones in the simplest of ways~

Just print, cut, wrap, and secure with tape!  REALLY CUTE- REALLY EASY!

See the entire FOURTH OF JULY collection- you will find an endless supply of fun and inspiration...

My glass bottles are re-purposed Starbuck's Frappuccino bottles- easy to find!

Independence Day banners can be made in different sizes when downloaded from Lauren McKinsey Designs...

She also has her adorable Hershey Kisses stickers available!

I think these would also be cute to let children use to decorate their own ice cream cone wrapper for a fun, quick activity while the ice cream is churning.

And I love the candy jar cut-outs- they also double as cup cake or pie toppers!

Print on sticker paper and make to-go boxes or treat boxes~

The collection has such a wide variety! 

The way printables work:  you simply purchase the file you would like to have sent to your email;  you print out your party pack and use in any way to decorate your party!  You will have gorgeous designs to use and as many as you like!
