So, your friends are expecting a new baby and you’re responsible for putting together the baby shower. The new parents-to-be are huge baseball fans so you’re thinking of a baseball-theme baby shower, is that right? If that’s what you have in mind that baby shower will certainly be unique! So should be the party favors you hand out as your friends leave the baby shower. Even if you aren’t planning a baby shower with a baseball theme these party favors are perfect for the occasion.
Purchase cellophane bags at a party or craft store. Bags which are clear, or ones that are clear and have small patterns, are ideal. The clear cellophane bags give the recipient of the party favor a little peek at what’s inside. In addition to the bags you’ll need individual sizes of Cracker Jacks and individual packages of peanuts. Although it’s easy to find small packs of peanuts it’s a little more challenging to find the small packs of Cracker Jacks in most towns. You can, however, order these online.
Place one bag of Cracker Jacks inside each cellophane bag along with one bag of the peanuts. Set the bags so that the front of the Cracker Jacks can be seen from the front of the bag, and when you turn the cellophane around, you’ll see the front of the peanuts.
Purchase small rubber balls to make the baseball theme for the party favors. The simple balls are inexpensive and should be about the size of a regular baseball, or a tad smaller. Rubber balls which are made to look like real baseballs are an absolutely must for the party favor bags. Use a marker to write on each ball.
If you’re making party favors for a baby shower write “Welcome To Our World” or another phrase. If the gender of the baby is known use a pink or blue marker to write on the ball. If the name and other information is known, this too, can be written on the ball.
Since the party favors can actually be made for other celebrations the ball writing can be made to suit the occasion. Write “I’m 10!” or even “Happy Halloween” on the balls. There are no limits to the theme you can give the party bag when you use those ordinary rubber baseballs.
When the ball is finished position it inside the cellophane, on top of the peanuts and Cracker Jacks, and set it so that the writing can be easily read through the bag. These unique party favors are just the thing for people who love baseball!
