First off, to stick with the theme from the ticket invite I printed off signs to go around the house and give it that stadium feel. The Portal 3 sign went over the front door and you'll see where the rest went.
I put the general admission sign on the sliding door to the deck in the back in case we needed an overflow area for people to chat.
before. The baseball bat was left from the people who lived here before us and home plate came from a pack of foam baseball plates I bought for my little guy from the dollar store a while back. I hung section 3T there because that is right above where our mommy of the hour sat.
A pair of my little squirts shoes, hubby's basketball, and a teddy wearing some sweat bands hubby got free at a Jazz game.
Now, we move to the kitchen.
I did buy these balls at the dollar store thinking I could use them for something at the shower. I combined them with some star curling ribbon I bought for the 4th and there was a little something something to hang above the food. (Just ignore the ugly light fixture and the fact that I made one of the covers crooked while hanging the balls.)
I bought this little chalkboard a few months ago from D.I. for like $2 for the playroom.
I think this is my very favorite part! I have to admit I still have the baseball and golf ball decor on my kitchen table. I got the vase on the left and the blue glass stars at the dollar store. The people who lived here before us left the baseballs, golf balls and bat from before (used a magic eraser to make them bright and clean). I had the other vases and scraps of ribbon. Stole some more golf balls and tees from my hubby's golf bag and made the basketballs from oranges using a sharpie permanent marker.
