Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Spend a fun evening with family and friends who are sports fans, and throw a baseball party. For one baseball party theme option, visit the ballpark and watch the sun set over the stands while eating a hot dog. For another option, watch the game with your guests in the comfort of your own home. Hang up baseball party decorations, plan a themed menu, and hand out favors.


Impress your guests with these baseball party ideas:

  • Check out the schedule for a professional or minor league team in your city, and choose one that you think will work for most of your guests.
  • Finalize the date for the baseball theme party and create your event on Punchbowl to select your baseball party invitations.
  • For an at home party, decorate your house with street signs, representative of the street names near the ball park. Create a homemade scoreboard with the names of the home team and an opposing team. Hang up foam fingers on the walls throughout the party space.
  • Plan a baseball party menu for your guests. Serve traditional ballpark baseball party food such as hot dogs or sausage and pepper sandwiches, popcorn, soft pretzels, peanuts, and cracker jacks.
  • Hand out baseball party favors at the end of the celebration. Serve soft serve ice cream in mini upside down plastic baseball caps for dessert and let guests take home the caps as party favors.

Call the baseball field in advance of the game and request that they write a special message on the jumbotron to welcome your guests to the game!
