Our San Diego Padres baseball birthday party was so much fun! My son loved every minute of this fun baseball party theme and our guests had a blast celebrating.
A Padres baseball birthday party
MJ’s birthday was earlier this month, he’s a big 5-year-old! Being the baseball lover that he is, he opted for a San Diego Padres party, featuring his favorite MLB team.
The party was set at a local park and included a sports jumper, a fun game of baseball, Padres cupcakes, a pinata, friends, family, baseball-themed food, and fun. We had a blast! If you are looking for baseball party ideas, take a look at what we did for MJ…
The Baseball Party Decorations
I made this baseball DIY cupcake stand to match the Padres colors and theme (they have since been exclusively wearing the brown and gold colors). It was so simple and turned out very cute.
The cupcakes are a simple yellow cake with a vanilla buttercream frosting, topped with the Padres baseball cupcakes toppers I made for them. Love how they looked!
Baseball party food ideas
We set up a fun baseball party snack table full of some of the best stadium favorites. Our baseball-themed food and snacks included hot dogs, chicken wings, cracker jacks, peanuts, licorice, popcorn, chips, baseball cookies, and watermelon. Yum!
A fun addition to this dessert table could be these baseball pull-apart cupcakes. The kids loved these when I made them for one of my son’s baseball team parties!
Our fun baseball-themed party favors
The baseball party favors are homemade, MJ and I took on this project and he had a lot of fun doing it! They are plastic baseball cups filled with goodies: baseball cards, mini cracker jacks, baseball stickers, candy, and little squishy baseball toys.
To make these DIY baseball favors, We slid each favor into a clear plastic party bag and tied off the top with a ribbon, curling the ends. Very cute and affordable, we made 20 and it only cost about $36, or less than $2 each!
Now it’s baseball party time!
Once we got our San Diego Padres baseball birthday party all set up, it was time to party! The kids got to play a little baseball game set up by the parents, jump around in the bouncy house, and more.
We purchased a large baseball piñata and tied it to a tree at the park. The kids had a blast with this good ol’ party favorite!
The birthday boy enjoyed his time with his friends and even a second plate of food!
