We celebrated Hunter's birthday a few weekends ago with a Baseball extravaganza!!!!
Everyone that came had such a good time!
My future baseball star!!!
The cake was made by my mom's good friend. She use to make our cakes when we were kids!!!! She also made my wedding cakes! They are to die for Chocolate Fudge cake with Chocolate Fudge buttercream icing!!!!
I made the cupcakes and tried to be creative with the icing. Speaking of creative, I bought all the printables from Parties by Hardie. I bought them from her Etsy shop and received my email the very next day and got to work!!!! I used the baseballs that said happy birthday and then cut out circles using my aunt's cricut.
I used the banner also and hung it....unfortunatley didn't get any pictures of it at the party. But I did hang it at our house on Hunter's actual birthday and got to snap a few then. I did the same thing as the cupcake sticks...Cut out 5 inch circles on the cricut and strung through some red/white polka dots and blue/white polka dots.
ok back to the Party. For the Centerpieces I took a small candle holders and filled it with Sunflower seeds and put in some of the leftover baseball pics.
I decorated the cake table with photos of when we took Hunter to his first Astros game.
Lets not forget to decorate the birthday boy!!! I searched Hi and Lo and all around town to find a raglan baseball shirt in his size. Just when I gave up, I turned to Etsy! Little One Boutique came to my rescue and customized this shirt for him!!! It was awesome and his eyes lit up when he put it on!!!
I also wanted to have a place for the kiddos to take pictures so I bought 2 yards of a fun fabric and hung it up to make a cute backdrop!!!
Here are some other pictures of our guest having fun!!!!!
The party didn't stop there!!!!
For his actual birthday I took him to toys r us and lunch at Chick fil A. Then I took him and Hailey to the park and to the school parking lot so he could ride his new tractor we got him. We ended the night eating Mexican food and ice cream.
