SOFTBALL / BASEBALL COACH GIFT IDEA WITH FREE PRINTABLE


Saturday was Renee's last day of softball–and it was a looong day, with 3 games in 90+ degree heat!  But, I have to say the coaches made it fun for them, with a water balloon fight and pizza party in between the games.  They were great coaches and we wanted to make sure we showed our appreciation for the time and effort they made throughout the season. We went to Party City and found a bunch of softball/baseball themed candy and bucket to put something cute together. I put the candy in a craft ornament I happen to have. We also included a baseball ornament we found at Hobby Lobby.  (Yes, can you believe the Christmas ornaments are already out at Hobby Lobby?!?!)
A cute ball tag was the finishing touch: "It was a BALL having you as a coach!  Thanks for everything!"
They loved the baskets! If any of your kids play softball or baseball, feel free to use the tag I made.

EARTHY GRAY AND WHITE BABY SPRINKLE

This baby sprinkle has just enough wow and details to make it charming and lovely without going over the top. The beautiful ruffled cake by Peace of Cake was a show stopper, but I love the watermelon carriage! The burlap and raffia-looking ribbon gave the decor an earthy feel, with touches of pink to let you know that a baby girl was on the way. Thanks to Maryland photographer, dKin Photography, for capturing and sharing the details of the special day.

BACKYARD MUSTACHE BABY SHOWER

To celebrate a little boy's upcoming arrival, this mama-to-be's sister and sister-in-law threw a fun mustache themed shower. I've seen quite a few mustache themed parties, but I have to say this is the first time I've seen a mustache shaped cake! Inspiring details include the bow-tied napkins and the diaper cake.  Enjoy the little details in this little man celebration taken by Colorado's Heart Life Photography.

PINA COLADA CAKE TRUFFLES

While everyone is ordering the latest craft beer at a bar or restaurant I always go for the fruity drink during the summer.  So, when I saw these Pina Colada truffle balls over at The Pint Sized Baker it was an immediate "oh yes" and pin from me! I'll have to try these and report back on how they were. And if you do, you'll have to let me know.  Thanks!
