Take me out to the Ball Game!

Last week my son Andrew turned 8! He LIVES for baseball so his theme was a no brainer this year! He invited his whole baseball team to a local park where I set up a concession stand in the pavilion while he and his buddies played baseball in the field. Luckily, Dad is coach so he did a great job putting a fun game together for the kids. We had a blast!

The concession stand was filled with sweets and treats....bats and balls, bubblegum, candy, popcorn, peanuts, cracker jacks and old fashioned bottles of cola! Next to that was the food table with concession stand style food....our kids favorites- Walking Tacos and Ballpark Hotdogs.

The picnic tables were set with cupcakes and cookies. Each place setting held a red gable box filled with a hostess baseball cupcake in a little baseball hat and a pack of trading baseball cards.

I am so thankful that Maggie Russo was there to capture all of the details for me (just weeks before she is due to have her baby)! Check out more photos on her blog here!

Here is my sweet birthday boy!

 This baseball printable collection and custom gable boxes are available in my shop. Thank for looking!

A Ballerina Party for Annabelle's 4th Birthday

My little princess turned 4 in May and upon her request we had a sweet Ballerina Party lunch! Thankfully Maggie Russo was there to capture all of the details for me!

 I will start with the favors. This party had a whole wall of them! The girls were pampered with tutus, pearls, flower hair clips, bracelets, ballerina soaps and sparkly rings. It was lots of fun for them!

We can't forget about the boys! My friend and I got together and made bow ties for all of the boys. They were placed on little kraft boxes that each had a chocolate cigar and stick on mustaches.

We served a light lunch of sandwiches, salads and pink lemonade!

And on to dessert....all of the desserts were made by my very talented sister!
They looked and AMAZING!!

Look at this gorgeous cake! I topped it with a vintage porcelain ballerina from Annabelle's room.

My favorite dessert were these gorgeous cupcakes!

Happy Birthday Sweet Annabelle!

It was a fun party on a gorgeous day!
