Baseball Theme Party Table Linens
There are so many great options for a baseball look. Keep it simple. Just throw on a white, yellow, blue, green, or red cotton table cloth, or use the colors of your favorite team i.e. Navy Blue, Sand, White (San Diego Padres). Alternatively, BBJ Linen has a huge selection from which to choose including a 90 inch square cloth called Baseball Your choice will ultimately come down to a combination of what your room looks like and how daring you feel.
If you want to save some money, most venues will supply complimentary white or cream linens; stick with white unless you prefer a more vintage look. Likewise, if you are hosting a baseball party at your house just about any color linen you have will be fine, in fact, place mats will also work great, and to tell you the truth, individual sheets of scrap booking paper work great and are adorable. Choose any solid colored paper or any of the patterns pictured below. If you are feeling creative and have lots of time, you can even create a layout highlighting your guest of honor. Alternatively, use your place mats as place cards by creating a page for each of your guests. Laminate it and tie with personalized ribbon for a complete favor anyone can enjoy.
