Boy Bash on a Budget Challenge

[Boy Bash] Baseball Tablescape on a Budget!

By  | Last Updated:  

How fun is this baseball party?

Every Tuesday till early September we’re going to be featuring a budget themed dessert table or tablescape from the talented women who have graciously volunteered to take on our Boy Bash on a Budget Challenge. And we’re even going to throw our own work into the ring from time to time and follow the same budget confines. Every participant gets the Spaceships and Laser Beams Collection of their choice + $50 for a dessert table or $20 for a tablescape. They can also use anything they are able beg or borrow or make themselves.

Today’s Boy Bash on a Budget Challenge party from Staci of Lizard & Ladybug. She braved the extreme wind to do this baseball themed tablescape, using Janelle’s Classic Baseball birthday party collection. Staci says “I kept it really budget friendly — utensils/plates/napkins from Dollar Tree, recycled glass jars with sunflower seeds/peanuts for centerpieces.  I added some cracker jacks in a cupcake liner and decorated with your cupcake wrap. The old school Cokes seemed to be a natural fit.  I also used contact paper to ‘laminate’ the place mat with the idea each kid could color on it with a dry erase marker OR autograph, if they wanted to.Even though I didn’t have a ‘real’ party, something like this could be re-created for lots of kids for not lots of money.”

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots.
