The inspiration behind a "Grand Slam Father's Day" comes from a wedding post. YOU must visit Amorolgy and see this classy yet AMAZING wedding!
Start out with sending a personal invitation to the special Dads on your list (as well as other guests). Baseball Tickets make a great invitation template.
Set the scene with LOTS of baseballs. Baseballs run about $1.89 each at Walmart. Before Father's Day, have the kiddos sign a special ball for Dear Ol'Dad.
If you are celebrating a grandfather, have all of the grandchildren write special messages on a wooden bat. (This idea came from my cousin's wedding-
a super special way to say thank you)
Keep the colors simple- Red and White or Red, White and Blue.
Baseball candies are a special treat!
THiNK BALL PARK when planning your menu and treats. HOOOTT DAWGS are a must, peanuts, popcorn, nachos, and Big League Chew Gum add a fun touch to this theme.
Set up a photo station for all of the kiddos to have pictures taken with Dad or Grand-dad.
Walmart is currently carrying these sports drinks. Fill metal buckets with ice and baseball
sports drinks for guests. Old fashion CocaCola bottles make a great refreshing treat as well.
This Lil'Slugger Birthday party comes from Swanky Tables. Using a large cubed clear case filled with baseballs makes a great cake stand.
Here are a few other inspirations from http://www.swankytablesblog.com/
Once lunch is cleared...PLAY BALL- have a family filled game of Baseball! Be sure to think of the little sluggers in the family and have tee-stand at hand.
Cheers (for Dad),
