For my nephew’s 1st birthday, my sister and I threw a baseball themed birthday party. There were a few other small children in attendance for the big bash, but this party was mainly for the adults and of course to get a few cute pics of the birthday boy shoving cake in his face.
Most of the decorations were, with no surprise, DIY. Just as explained in the Rock N Roll themed Baby Shower post, having a main table as the focal point is very effective and appealing.
The photo above represents the main attraction table.

- Baseball for guests to sign with a message for the little slugger
My sister had a fun idea for the adults. She typed and printed quotes from different baseball movies and attached onto different patterned cardstock. She simply taped these quotes on top of framed photos around the kitchen and living area. She provided a little “quiz” sheet on clipboards; the adults wrote their answers on their quiz. Later in the party, the answers were revealed and the winner received a little prize.
The cupcakes were homemade and the toppers were photos of the birthday boy on one side, with his “stats” on the other side.
On oversized baseball posters on the kitchen wall, we wrote what was being served at the “Concession Stand”. Basically just a quick menu of the food at the party.
In the entrance of the house, we had a little table setup for the kiddies; there were traditional birthday hats, goodie bags, and little games they could play.
I hope this helped spark some ideas for you. While this theme is baseball, these ideas can be translated for any type of themed party.
