Baseball Bar Mitzvah Decor Ideas

Post contains affiliate links

It’s fall and you know what that means…World Series!! Do you have a little slugger in your family? I recently created some fun party installations for a baseball-loving 13 year old guy who was celebrating his bar mitzvah! He loves baseball so much that he chose a baseball theme for his big day. The event was held at a fun location called Rec Room here in Memphis. It’s like a big sports and game themed living room where you can play video games projected up onto the walls. It’s a great location for 13 year olds to have fun.
My friend Sheril at Shindigs by Sheril wanted me to create all the centerpieces and hanging d├ęcor and to also do a huge balloon installation on one of the walls to celebrate Max. 

To welcome our guests, I tied a bunch of baseball themed mylar balloons all over the railing outside Rec Room. I used the giant baseball gloves, baseball shapes, simple red, and blue and white striped to bring in the red, white, and blue theme. I didn’t even fill them with helium because they were going to be tied to the fencing. I just used a simple air pump. No need for helium. 

When the guests entered the building, they were greeted with this giant balloon display, spelling Max’s name in 3D letters. These are actually really easy to make and I promise you can do it too! I started with the 4 Ft Giant 3D Letters from Shindigz.  These are made from cardboard and are a snap to put together, just make sure that you have a big area to work within. I used the backs and the sides, but NOT the fronts. Then it gave me a shell to work with. I filled the shells with blue balloons, which I stuck in there using glue dots and double sided adhesive pad tape. It’s easiest to work with the letters lying down and then stand them up when you are ready to display them. For the baseball shapes, I used a 4ft Moonlight Hanging Moon cutout. I just turned it around, so it was white on the other side and then applied the same method with white balloons. Then, to create the stitching, a little red duct tape works wonders! When I finished, I ran fairy lights around the outsides to light the entire display up for the evening! I LOVE how it turned out!

To create my centerpieces, I did two different styles. The first was this bat display. I used a small wooden trough and filled it with foam. Then, I covered the foam with Plastic Grass Mats to create a turf. I displayed the wooden bats by drilling holes into the ends and inserting them into the foam. The finishing touch were these personalized stickers! I created them to match the theme and then applied them right to the box. My other centerpieces were a simple metal tub filled with peanuts, popcorn, and some baseball player cutouts!

And finally, since we had such a high ceiling, we wanted to have some hanging items! So, I created these personalized Baseball Corex Yard Signs. But instead of putting them in the yard, I strung them with twine and hung them from the ceiling!  These are also a great keepsake for our honoree!

I hope these ideas help you hit it out of the park!
