I haven't blogged for a week because I've been so busy planning and executing a graduation party for Brian. It was this past Saturday and it turned out every bit as fabulous as I had imagined. I picked the vintage baseball theme because Brian graduated with his masters in Sport Management and baseball is his favorite! Me and my party planning sisters can take all the credit for the original decorations because when we Google searched vintage baseball parties for ideas and all we came up with were parties for five year olds. We made invitations, signs, and center pieces. It was a backyard afternoon party, so it was a bit warm. But that's ok, it felt just like a day baseball game.
For the center pieces Brittany had the idea to decoupage pots with vintage baseball pictures. We picked up the pots at our local Goodwill. We didn't have any vintage baseball pictures, so I found some on Google images, printed them out in black ink on cream paper. The same prints were used to make the signs. We made pennant flags with a variety of paper, sticking to our color scheme of navy blue, deep red, and cream. Navy blue table cloths, red Gerber Daises, and mason jars filled with peanuts in their shells and red vines finished the center pieces.
