Wiffle Ball Tournament. Y’all, my second son eats, sleeps, and breathes all things sports. Seriously, he even talks sports in his sleep…last year I promised him an epic wiffle ball tournament, hoping he would forget. He did not, and I had to pay up. Luckily, he was ok to wait until the summer.
My son wanted a vintage feeling party, and when I saw these baseball invitations from Jen T. by Design, I knew I had to have them! Jen graciously altered the invitation to have a wiffle ball and bat on the front too to fit our party!
We hosted the tournament in our back yard, marking off the field with inexpensive white spray paint. We weren’t real scientific about the field size, we just made it fit our yard. We used Dollar Tree bases, and a wiffle ball set from $5 Below. The backstop was a PVC pitch back net that we have had for years. So, the field was done for under $10!
My bar has been set pretty high with the boys, so my son expected me to have a large concession stand for our guests, and he even wanted me to make everyone a team jersey. I did not make jerseys. I did, however, make an amazing concession stand, though. Every ball game needs to have hot dogs, and I cannot think of a better way to serve them than the Nostalgia Electrics Hot Dog Cart! We loaded the cart up with available drink flavors, and chip bags, and a TON of hot dogs. It cooked the hot dogs quickly too! Next to the Hot Dog Cart, I set up a dessert table. I bought grocery store cupcakes and topped them with wiffle ball fondant toppers from Harriets House of Cakes, they were.the.cutest. I also popped up some popcorn in my Nostalgia Electrics Popcorn Popper. I have had it for years, and I LOVE it. I cannot think of a ball game without thinking of Cracker Jacks, I was thrilled to find the old fashioned style boxes available at my local grocery store. Fresh lemonade was served from a red drink dispenser. Finally, I added felt pennant flags above the concession area, and a CONCESSIONS printable sign across the fence behind the dessert table and Hot Dog Cart. (The pennant flags are the same ones I used for the Knight Party, the Kunin Group felt is the best I have ever used)
Despite it being about 97 degrees the day of our tournament, I can safely say we all had a great time! Thank goodness for our Arctic Cove misting fans 🙂
