Hey Batter Batter! First Birthday Party.....

This first birthday party was a total blast to plan. Weeks and weeks went into creating the perfect 1st birthday for little guy Cayden. Taking place as a block party in South Philadelphia, we used the Philadelphia Phillies as inspiration and knew everyone would show up with team pride. Its hard not to in a baseball town like this one!

Centerpieces I created using typical baseball munchies, some printables I created and topping them on a square of artificial grass.

A "Phanatic Phood" table played a tribute to the lovable team mascot, the Philly Phanatic, who made an appearance later on in the day.....

What else to serve at a baseball party than Hot Dogs? We were loving this retro machine we borrowed from a neighbor.

Using individual packets of condiments saved on a lot of messy bottles and made the food line flow very smoothly when you didn't have to wait for your turn.

Centerpiece on the buffet table

Concession sign hanging from the front window, all the food was underneath and we had baseball snacks scattered throughout the party.

Philadelphia Prezel Company made "P" pretzels to show team pride!

Favors that were super easy to make, using dollar store baseball bats with the baseballs attached and I created the hang tags and attached with some patriotric ribbon
Another sign I created for the peanuts.

Autograph station for everyone to leave their well wishes for the little slugger.

At last, a special appearance by the Philly Phanatic to surprise all the excited adults kids.

The men at the party giving their arms a workout at the Speed Pitch inflatable we rented. Even the Phanatic is giving a try at it!

Cake time for the Birthday Boy! Loved all the team spirit that everyone brought to celebrate his big day!


  1. What a fabulously planned party! Love all the themed details...all chosen and executed so well!

  2. This is really cute. Love the theme

  3. What a fantastic theme! You really thought out every favorite are the "Rookie" and "Old Timers" drink tubs! So cute, what a lucky little boy.

  4. Very cute! Love the glove in the glass jar. I'd love for you to link this up over at my {wow me} wednesday link party going on over on my blog right now. :) Following from Fingerprints on the Fridge. :)


  5. There is a very wide range of Synthetic tennis courts grass products on the market now, tailored for various different sports from bowls to equestrianism. Of course natural turf is managed in countless different ways specifically for the sports played on them and, likewise, synthetic turf has been developed with the various qualities required by different sports.

  6. How did you make the signs that say Rookie and Old Timers?

  8. Hi! I know this post is older but I was hoping you could tell me about the Phanatic. We are right across the bridge and planning my son's first bday in September. Did you rent him from the Phillies or did you get a costume? (Sorry about the username coming up as Buddy the cat, I can't fix it.. My name is Stefani!)

  9. How did you make the Rookie & Old Timer Signs?

    1. Hi! I made them just using clip art in a program that is no longer in service unfortunately. You could make it probably just as easy in a program like Word or Publisher maybe! Sorry!
