This past July, we hosted a baby shower to welcome our baby boy Jayce into the world. Our theme was vintage baseball, and of course we had to have a stellar dessert table! Take a look at some of the details below!
We used red floor length linens and some All American bunting to give the table an “All Star Game” feel. Instead of using traditional cake plates, we used boxes wrapped in coordinating wrapping paper which made for easy cleanup. The paper pennants were also created by Sweetness which read “Sweet Spot”. We also printed some of our favorite baseball players onto card stock and applied them to the walls using sticky tack.
Small buckets filled with salted peanuts and mini pennants were scattered all around the venue, not only as center pieces but as snacks for the guests to enjoy!
Our centerpieces were made up of a home-plate, worn out baseballs, and three plastic bats painted to look like wooden bats.
The cake is the staple of any dessert table, however, we were offering our guests so many other desserts we decided to make a faux cake just to carry the theme across. The cake had a traditional baseball feel, with some stadium food added such as pretzels, peanuts, bubble gum, and popcorn!
We had Guayabera, Thrilla In Vanilla, Red Velvet, Maple Bacon, and Chocolate <3 Vanilla mini cupcakes decorated with baseballs and red and blue stars with the baby’s initials. We also had homemade marshmallows dipped in chocolate, and browned butter rice krispy treats.
Our G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time) cookies made a guest appearance, along with some baseball decorated sugar cookies.
Some of JC’s baseball gear, including his little league cleats from 20 something years ago!
We had a HUGE variety of dessert shots such as S’More, Guava Cheesecake, Chocolate Mousse, Key Lime Pie, and my favorite Strawberry Panna Cotta.
No baseball themed event is complete without cotton candy and cracker jacks!
