Throw some hot dogs on the grill, put out a few easy baseball-inspired decorations and whip up a couple themed snacks for the perfect baseball party to kick off the summer!
We’re almost to June and I’m starting to think about planning my first party of the summer! My wife is a principal at a school in Chicago and we always like to celebrate the end of the school year in a delicious way. Baseball is America’s pastime, and games are a great reason to throw a great theme party!
Summer entertaining doesn’t have to be difficult or fancy. I’m partnering with Solo Cup to show you some quick and easy snacks that will be a home run with all of your guests!
What should I serve at a baseball party?
Let’s start with the main course: hot dogs!
Hot dogs are a classic ballpark treat, and they’re so easy to throw on the grill and let your guests do the rest. Put all the classic hot dog toppings out in Solo’s snack bowls (think relish, pickles, and sauerkraut) and on a larger platter, place the hot dogs and buns. Let your guests top each dog with their favorites! If you’re feeling up to it, you could even make some homemade chili and have a chili dog station!
Some other Baseball party snack ideas:
Nachos are both kid and adult friendly, and so easy to assemble. Using Solo’s 20 paper bowls, place a handful of round tortilla chips and your favorite nacho cheese sauce right in the bowl! If you like it spicy, pile on sliced jalapenos or chili peppers to your liking!
I’m a big fan of a sweet and salty mix, so a fun summer trail mix is a must have at all of my parties.
Combine the following in a large bowl for mixing:
Finally, what we’ve all been waiting for: dessert!
Donuts are the perfect food to transform into a baseball. Start with a classic donut frosted with white glaze, and using red candy melts and a squeeze bottle, create the red stitching on each donut! I promise, these will be a hit with both kids and adults! No one can turn down a donut!
If you want to want to throw some fruit in the mix, use some donut holes to make festive fruit skewers that will fit right with the theme! Skewer white powdered donut holes, blueberries and strawberries on a wooden skewer and place on Solo’s 10″ paper plate for serving
Here’s to happy snacking with Solo Cup, and lots of home runs!
