Want to go all out for your baseball or softball party? By transforming baseballs into invitations, you not only surprise your base-running guests but also get them ready to play some ball! Plus, once the little sluggers open their invites, they can reuse them on the field again and again. Try these tips to make sure your baseball invites are a success:
1. On one side of the baseball write a brief message, and on the other, indicate the time, date, and place. Keep the message on the baseball short and sweet. You don’t have much room! Try some of these short sayings to keep your invite on theme:
- Have a ball at John’s 8th birthday party!
- Let’s play ball! Lisa is turning 3!
- Get a homerun at Nick’s birthday!
- Our little slugger Kate is 6!
- Nathan is sliding into 2nd! (This wording works well if your child is turning 1, 2 or 3.)
2. Write on the ball in pencil to prevent mistakes before using a permanent black marker to finalize the message.
3. Let your little slugger autograph each ball before you send them off to make him or her feel that much more special.
4. Wrap each baseball invite in red tissue paper, gingham fabric, or a bandana, and put it in a white favor box. Your child can personally distribute the invites at one of his or her ball games or at school, or you can mail them.
