Take Me Out To The Ballgame!

Classic baseball always seems to be celebrated in red and blue... but what if you're a baseball loving girl? For this party, boyish baseball meets its match with a pink and red palette. I've always been a fan of the American pastime, and remember sitting in the stands as a little girl on a hot summer day. For a birthday treat, my hubby is taking me out to the ballgame tonight to root for our favorite team. So, for all the girly-girls out there who love the sport, this pink and red baseball birthday party inspiration is for you!
