Better’s up! Shying away from the traditional baseball theme, this mom threw an extra cute curveball with this amazing vintage baseball party for her little slugger’s third birthday. Burlap, houndstooth, and hunter green décor create a beautifully rustic and masculine vibe, while the ballpark-inspired sweet treats sound out the bases. My highlights include the mini apple pies, baseball cake pops, “hamburger” cupcakes, and “French fry” cookies!

10. Chocolate Graham Cracker Baseballs

Every baseball all-star needs some baseball-themed sweet treats at their birthday bash. These chocolate-covered graham crackers do just the trick. They are easy and inexpensive to recreate yourself with graham crackers cookies, white chocolate melts, and red chocolate or royal icing. Pipe the red chocolate onto the cookies to look like the stitches on a baseball and you have the ultimate festive dessert.

Welcome your guests to the birthday bash in style, with this personalized chalkboard welcome sign. It is the perfect addition to a classic baseball-themed party full of vintage flare.

Each of the three layers of this impressive fondant cake looks even more amazing (and delicious) than the last. The first layer is inspired by a vintage baseball jersey, with three buttons running right down the center. The second looks like a leather-laced baseball glove, and the top looks like a baseball!

The details on this baseball cake are amazing! The first layer is decorated in red and white fondant stripes with a perfectly crafted personalized baseball displayed front and center. The top layer is complete in navy with a quilted pattern and 3 different-sized baseballs. It’s topped off with a baseball cap made from fondant and a pennant banner with the birthday girl or boy’s age.

16. Burlap Baseball Party Banner

No baseball party is complete without a baseball banner. This burlap baseball banner would be perfect to hang over a dessert or food table and would look great hanging up in the birthday child’s room afterward.
