A themed birthday party is the perfect way to celebrate your child by giving them a day full of the things they love the most! Finding just the right decor, snacks, activities can feel overwhelming, but Kristy is an expert party planner and has all the best tips and tricks. She threw this baseball-themed party for her son’s fifth birthday and she knocked it out of the park! Check out her party ideas below.

First up, snacks! This concessions stand is the perfect way to keep all the best baseball game favorites in one place. From popcorn to sunflower seeds to cotton candy, this snack table covered all the bases!

Is it a baseball party without Dippin’ Dots?? I absolutely looked into getting the real thing but it was about $200 to ship!! I love my son but notttttt that much…thank goodness for Walmart! I found these alternatives that are almost like the real thing – they were so good!

I even made this cute sign that I attached to the ice cream cooler and paired with these plastic helmet bowls!

These pretzels from Philly Pretzel Factory were a homerun! I grabbed 50 for $30 and got a few different sauces on the side for dipping:

  • Brownie Batter
  • Buttercream (kids’ favorite)
  • Nacho Cheese
  • Mustard 
  • Cinnamon (my favorite)

Game day wouldn’t be complete without the candy! The kids loved being able to grab a couple of their favorite sugary treats throughout the party, and these fun decorative signs kept the theme going throughout.

And of course, a baseball cake with a baseball candle! We did half vanilla/half chocolate and my local ShopRite bakery made it. Also, would you believe me if I told you that when I cut the cake, I literally cut it perfectly down the middle splitting the two flavors…not a crumb of flavors mixed. I couldn’t do that again if I tried! It’s the little things in life, right??

Obviously we needed a few activities to keep the hopped-up-on-sugar kiddos occupied, so I made this baseball scavenger hunt and printed images on cardstock (if you have more time than I did, you can laminate them and reuse)! The kids had a blast! I hid the pieces all over the backyard and they had to find all of the objects before they could redeem a prize – I went to the dollar store and grabbed a bunch of dollar gifts so I’d have enough for everyone.

This cardboard pop-up playhouse was a hit! The kids colored on it all day in between games and food!

An no birthday celebration is complete without the perfect party outfit!! I found this jersey-style top and this adorable headband adorned with baseball-themed charms, and paired them with a pair of jeans and simple sneakers for a sporty chic look!

If we can find a reason to throw a party, you bet we’re taking it. And a theme party?? Watch. Us. Thrive. Kristy is the queen of party planning, especially when it comes to doing so on a budget, and the results are always FABULOUS! Her daughter just turned 7 and her only request this year – a Squishmallows birthday party. You would think with the popularity of these sweet stuffed characters, putting together a party would be a breeze. But as Kristy started planning, she realized it was little more difficult than she anticipated. As usual, she worked her magic and threw a Squishmallows party to remember. See the highlights below!

A Squishmallows party wouldn’t be a Squishmallows party without all our Squishmallows friends! Obviously the “Happy Birthday” cupcake is essential, and the pizza, sandwich, chips, and ice cream ones are perfect for setting up around certain food stations!

Pastel balloons sprinkled with clear, funfetti-filled ones make for a gorgeous arched centerpiece! This is great for a photo op area or around the gift table. Confetti garland, a “happy birthday” banner, a Squishmallows backdrop, and holographic fringe complete the look!

Colorful candy, snow cones, and macarons are the perfect sweet treats for a Squishmallows party. Stick your lollipops in this wooden lollipop stand and stack your macarons on this tiered stand. The candy station sign is from Decocrated, and yes, Kristy drew that Squishmallow (angry unicorn, according to her husband) all by herself. She might have missed her calling as an artist.

Smarties, marshmallows, and lollipops, oh my! This super cute candy cart is stocked up on all the best treats for your sweet tooth. Add gummy bears and cotton candy for a pastel-filled palette of deliciousness, and if you need a little salty with all that sweet, grab these popcorn boxes to filled with buttery, fresh-popped goodness. If you want to make your own popcorn, we love these popcorn maker essentials.

Is there anything as delicious as a classic snow cone? Grab your snow cone machine and your flavored syrups (these tops make for easy pouring), and these chilled treats will make for one cool dessert. Serve them up in these fun flower cups and top them off with a snow cone straw/spoon.

No real party is complete without a piñata. How cute is this unicorn cupcake?! It’s almost too cute to swing a stick at but…candy!! Stuff it with these party favors and candy varieties and hang it up with this heavy-duty deck hook.

And of course, we can’t forget the birthday cake!! The cake was made by Courtney from Courtney’s Kitchen – if you’re in the South Jersey area, be sure to check her out and give her some love! This cake is incredible!!

Keep the theme going even into your seating setup. Tie-dye tablecloths with pop-up Squishmallows centerpieces make for great table decor!

Gotta send the kiddos home with goodies! Kristy filled these boxes with the cutest Squishmallows-inspired items – mini mystery bags, mini erasers, lip balm, stickers, and more! She also did a scavenger hunt in the backyard and each kid got to bring home two items, including Squooshems, trading cards, and mystery mini Squishmallows!
