Looking for AHR decor inspiration
Posted 04 August 2008 - 12:06 PM
But since we already did the orchids/glass/candles/lanterns elegant thing, we thought we'd make the parties at home a bit more fun and off kilter. We discovered that the local AAA baseball park in PA has a party box that they rent out, so we'll be having our party there, starting an hour or two before the game itself. We were thinking it might be fun to rent a popcorn cart , a dog roller, maybe even sno cones and nachos (ballpark food!).
But then here's my question: How on earth do we go about decorating? (full-on camp with strings of cotton candy bags and vases full of giant pixie stix? something slightly more classy?)
And another question: Is there anything we can give people (favors?) that would go along with the theme without being too cheap-looking or cheesy?
I've got decorator's block -- too much time spent thinking about votives and capiz shells and flowers. Any and all ideas welcome! Please??

This thread by Morgan talked about having a more “party” AHR than a formal event....my fave idea from this thread was the taco bar! Now that Morgan’s AHR is a-go, I’m sure we’ll soon see pics and hopefully these would give you some ideas too. http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t14170
Oriental trading has lots of fun ideas for decor and favors. Check out their "fiesta" section.

Thing is, since it's baseball, we were thinking to capitalize on that theme. I have since had one (and only one) brainstorm:
Box of Cracker Jack and bag of peanuts in the shell, tied together with a little note that says, "We go together like peanuts and Cracker Jack."
What do you think?

Hmm...baseball theme party....OTC has baseball maracas - where the maraca is painted and shaped like a baseball. And I think they have a baseball shaped pinata....
Are you sending invites? You could make those look like a baseball ticket. Just alter the boarding pass style or I've seen something similar on ebay.
I still think the candy buffet could work - you could have those baseball gumballs, licorice, and maybe some gourmet popcorn (Dale and Thomas style).
Maybe you could have vintage style baseball cards and pennants on tables? And if you are naming tables, you could have baseball sayings or team names....
This might not work too well, but instead of a guest book, you could have everyone sign a baseball bat and mitt?
For favours, you could have baseballs that you've written your names and wedding date on.

We did a cupcake tower at our AHR, with starfish on top (made from candy molds). You could do something like that with the baseball theme as well.
And of course just keep it as a ballpark food theme w/ hot dogs and hamburgers but with a gourmet toppings bar (similar to the taco bar theme).
Can't wait to see this one!!!!!
