With the MLB postseason in full swing, it's the perfect time for a baseball-themed party! This theme is great for birthday parties and would make a fun watch party as well!

Set up a table with classic ballpark snacks like hotdogs, nachos, and popcorn and let your guests dig in! Check out Liz on Call for more food ideas!
After all the salty popcorn, your guests will need something sweet! These baseball cupcakes are festive and tasty! All you need is your favorite white cake mix, white frosting, and red icing! Check out Sea Kettle for the full instructions!

"Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, I don't care if I never get back."

Ahh, Valentine's... the day of love! Of course the holiday day has been commercialized, but it is still a beautiful holiday and a time to show those you love how much they mean to you.
If you're like us, the kids have probably had plenty of candy from school parties so we tried to put together some cool activities for the day that aren't necessarily candy related (ok, ok, there may be sprinkles and syrup involved).
This year Valentine's falls on a Sunday so that means there's a little more time for mornings. How about some Valentine's pancakes to kick off the day? We found these at complete recipes.com. I might suggest just using a mix and then having the kiddos add their favorites to the mix individually. Sprinkles anyone?!
During breakfast why not have everyone go around the table and say a reason why they love each person there. Sweet huh?!
And then of course there's a craft. Honestly if you have finger paint, paper and crayons... well you can conquer the (kid's craft) world. Have the kids create Valentine's for family members while you read a book, or help them out. (Photo from Crafty Morning)
If you're not in the mood for crafts, family movies are a great way to celebrate spending time with the ones you love. There are lots of cutesie Valentine movies like Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown.
And... last but not least, add a Valentine's theme to dinner. Pizza is always a hit with our family so this is a breeze and a fan favorite that requires little effort. (Photo from Baker by Nature)
We hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day!
Valentine's Day and the Candy Shoppe Theme have had visions of sugar plums (and more) dancing in our heads. What could be more fun than a party full of sweets and treats? This is probably one of our favorite party themes because, of course, candy, and it's just plain fun!!
When it comes to parties, we are a huge fan of decorations. Besides our party supplies, we found the sweetest decor to add to your table or just in and around the party area!
All you need are just a few items to create these sweet trees:
-White styrofoam cones, varying sizes (Dollar Store, Hobby Lobby, Michael’s)
-Hot glue gun/hot glue
-Assorted candy (conversation hearts, gummy hearts, and peppermint marshmallows)
-Ribbons (for top of trees)
We found these and other inspiration at Amanda Jane Brown. Check it out!!
We are fans of what we call "Creation Stations." And with a Candy Themed party, the options here are endless! How about adding a candy bar where guest can select their own toppings for cupcakes or ice cream? Sounds delish right?! We're sure it will be a hit too with young and old!
When perusing around for some other fun ideas we found a craft so cute you'll just wanna eat it up!!
What we love about this is that it's a good craft for any age!
Just have some round candy or cereal and some yard or string and you can throw this craft out there in no time flat!
Ideas needed for candy? How about: Life Savers, Fruit Loops, Cheerios, Peach Rings, Pretzel Rings
The Love Nerds made these at a party and we love them for posting!!
We could go on and on with this party theme because there are so many "sweet" ideas!
