If you are looking for a great DIY Photo Booth or some easy, budget friendly Baseball Party Theme ideas…you’ve hit the jackpot! A few months ago I hosted a baby shower for a dear friend and to celebrate the pending arrival of her little boy, she chose an adorable baseball theme. I went to town brainstorming ideas and scouring Pinterest. The photo galleries below feature the food, drinks, décor, activities and games that we had at the shower! Many of these ideas can be modified to fit other themes as well. Have fun and as always thanks for reading friends! ~Lisa
DECOR: The food displays actually made up a great majority of the décor. I add a couple of DIY banners that I picked up at Target and added a few small twirly baseball hanging decorations that I found on Amazon. To add to the personalization of the décor, I added two activity decorations with a baseball to be autographed for baby by the party guests and a “Guess the # of bubble gum pieces in the jar”. The shallow red basket filled with baseball cap ice cream cups, mini steno pads, team spirit bracelets and a movie were some of the fun yet inexpensive prizes for the games. The tissue paper Pom-Poms were made by me. Here is a great step-by-step tutorial on how to make the Pom-Poms by Hey Let’s Make Stuff…Note: tutorial shows to staple in center which I opted to tie instead with the end of a piece of fishing line so that I could hang them up. The clear fishing line makes them look like they are floating! :)
PHOTO BOOTH: Red paper background is basic gift wrapping paper attached to the wall with 3M adhesive strips. Twisted streamers for border are attached with thumb tacks in corners. Cardstock paper was used to print and make the fun props which were quickly attached to sticks with a hot glue gun. SO MUCH FUN!
Tinkle In The Pot: This is a hilarious Baby Shower Game. Each player puts a balloon under their shirt while holding a ping pong ball between their knees. Player must waddle down the line and drop the ball into a jar or bucket.
TP DIAPERS: Split your group into teams. Each team needs one volunteer to get a “diaper” made by their team. The team uses toilet paper to create a diaper on their “Big Baby”. Lots of laughs guaranteed!
