This Party's a Grand Slam!

Sunday was the kick-off for the MLB season... and I seriously can't contain my excitement! I'm a HUGE baseball fan... like HUGE! I love my Minnesota Twins! The boy and I are going to the Twins home opener (they started their season off on the road for 7-games... lame!) on Monday! It's an exciting and historical year for the Twins as they unveil their new ballpark for this game - and it's outdoors! I've never been to an outdoor stadium, so you can just imagine my excitement (although, I'm guessing most of you living in warm states are saying "an outdoor stadium... in Minnesota?!?! I know. I've said that, too!).

Anyway, with us recently buying a house (and might I add, closing in 2 weeks!), I thought it'd be SOOOO much fun to get a big group of friends together during the summer at our new place to watch a game. We'll grill, drink and enjoy the game; hey, we could even go to the game and just pre-party at our new place. I think either idea works well because it lets me plan a party and enjoy one of my favorite sports!

OK - on to the fun stuff! Have you seen the baseball themed party that Stephanie from Couture Parties planned for her son's birthday? Um... let me tell you - it's way too cute. She definitely hit this one out of the park! (ha! that was corny, I know... sorry!) While she's a Boston Red Sox fan (a rival to many baseball teams in the American league... including my beloved Twins!), I just love the party and had to feature it! She incorporated so many different elements of baseball into this fun party - peanuts, cotton candy, lemonade and of course baseballs! Check out her photos below to see just how cute this party is! I'm already jotting down ideas for my baseball themed party... hopefully it'll be a post that I can share with you in a month or two. Until then - I'll be gushing over her party! :)

Here are the adorable favors she put together for her guests. How cute! It included a baseball, Cracker Jacks and Twizzlers. Love it!

What's baseball without peanuts, popcorn, ice cream, cotton candy and all the other novelty foods you get at a ball park? Although, that should be a Minnesota Twins sticker on that tin pail! :)

I love the idea of fresh lemonade in those ADORABLE baseball sip cups! Way too cute!

Decorating with peanuts? Yes, please!!

How cute and inexpensive!

Delicious looking cupcakes that look like baseballs? Love it again!
