Today is my son’s 14th birthday. He was born at the perfect time of year for someone with a profound passion for baseball….watching, playing…everything baseball. He’s a huge Yankees fan and by the 14th year of coming up with original baseball themed celebrations, I was starting to run out of ideas. So this year, the theme is “Pinstripes.” It’s amazing how easy it is to work around a theme once you have it, everything from straws to cake to washi tape to plates and candles…all blue and white pinstripes…for the New York Yankees, of course! I have been wanting to try the engineer prints from Staples for a while…I chose a few from over the years of Patrick’s young baseball career and had them made all for around $10. A few weeks ago, Paula of Two Ellie made them for for her son’s 6th birthday and went with the even larger size. I think I’ll try that next time…check her darling party out here.
