A baseball themed baby shower is a cute motif fit for any baby-to-be but is extra special for the new arrival of a bouncing boy. When we think of baseball, our hearts immediately melt with nostalgia, catching a whiff of the yummy scents of hot dogs and popcorn, tasting the sharp fizz of Coca-Cola on our tongues, and cheering on one of the world’s happiest past time sports.
Baseball Baby Shower Invitation
Gather up and send out your creative invitations in the form of baseball card replicas and prepare to show your guests a grand slam kind of time! If it’s going to be a Vintage themed baseball baby shower, you may choose to go for a design that incorporates old wooden background.
Baseball Baby Shower Decoration
Decorations can be centered towards the aura of an adorable baseball park, and some basic ballpark colors to include are red, blue, and white. Hang cutouts of baseballs from the ceilings or string them up as a makeshift garland. Red and blue balloons around the party with white shoe strings, and hang baseball cleats up high along the ceilings as well.
Pin up flag banners with the soon-to-be baby’s name, and post pictures along the walls and on the tables of famous baseball fields and players.
Baseball Autograph Guestbook
Welcome the guests with this sign by KGPaperBoutique. It will look good sitting on the table with a mini wooden bat and a baseball with a wooden stand for everyone to “autograph”!
Baseball Baby Shower Centerpiece
You may want to drape tables in dark blue cloth and tie chairs with white sashes. You may want to create baby shower centerpieces from old Cracker Jack boxes filled with marbles and white tulips, and have a jar full of peanuts with these fun “Rookie of the Year” by ImagineThatDesignsCo.
Another great centerpiece idea would be to have a baseball-themed diaper cake, these are great for decoration and also make the perfect gift for the parents-to-be with diapers they’ll need for their baby!
For the backdrop, you can hang to the main food table with white and red striped paper pinwheels, complete with a large cutout of a baseball with welcoming words written inside. Another backdrop idea would be to have a scoreboard poster.
Other fun baseball accessories to place around the party venue are catcher’s mitts, umpire masks, baseball caps, and miniature bats.
You can even paint these bats and personalize them to give to your guests as memorable favors. To complete the vintage look of the world of baseball, have little chalkboards propped up on the tables with sayings on them like, “Yoooou’re out!” and “There’s no crying in baseball!”
Baseball Baby Shower Food
Setting up a concession-type food area is a wonderful idea for a baseball themed baby shower and your guests will really love this. Have a simple, yet fun cake as the center of your food table, such as a round cake in the shape of a baseball or a simple cake with a fun baseball-themed topper!
Trays of baseball sugar cookies, brownie baseball trading cards, cupcakes with toppers, cakepop baseballs, and red, blue, and white macaroons are a delicious assortment. An ice cream bar is a great idea as well, with plenty of patriotic sprinkles and cherries. Other great baseball field staple treats to offer are hot dogs, oreos, peanuts, jelly beans, and of course, Cracker Jacks and hot popcorn!

Baseball Baby Shower Game
While a baby shower is typically a laid-back, relaxing and low-key celebration, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with baby shower games.
