When we found out my niece was expecting a baby boy and knowing she comes from a family of all girls we knew right away what the theme would be. This little allstar’s grandpa-to-be has been waiting lots of years for a little boy to coach.
We had the invites printed up and then added some “Trina” fun to them by adding background paper, inking the edges with a bit of red, and tying on the little “please join us”.
Then we brainstormed the food to serve which could go along with our theme.
Setting the food table with jars of peanuts . . .
Baberuths . . .
And mini licorce ropes all tied with some junk bows (made with coffee filters, an old pair of jeans torn up, and a few other odd and end ribbons).
The desserts were both baseball sugar cookies and/or cupcakes baked in baseball theme wrappers.
Even the water bottles joined in with the theme.
The main course were a few different salads and a variety of hoagie sandwiches (I did consider hamburgers and hotdogs but I didn’t want to be grilling while I could be having fun).
I do believe the adorable momma-to-be approved of the food.
The guest were greeted with a welcome table which they could sign their names on a bat donated by grandpa Russ to be displayed in baby’s nursery . . .
as well as a fun little outfit for baby to wear next year to watch daddy and grandpa play some ball . . .
and his first baseball book.
A huge basket was set out with party favors for them to take as they were leaving.
We hung a few banners using the same junk bows to bring in the theme . . .
This one for baby . . .
We kept the table decor fun and easy going . . .
But still keeping with the theme . . .
It’s always the most fun when everyone arrives and the excitement begins.
Momma-to-be (Dezi) with her sisters, mother, grandmother, aunt (me), Cousin (Tori and Molly).
Dezi with her close dance friends from her growing up years.
And the dance mom’s together again . . . Oh I love these women.
Yes, Molly was having a great time . . .
Now that little all-star can enter this world any day . . . WE CAN”T WAIT!!!
