Batter Up for a Baseball-Themed Bar Mitzvah Invitation

Posted on

So, your son is growing up to be a huge baseball fan. If he’s anything like my four nephews, he can recite batting averages and statistics without even blinking an eye. It would come as no surprise to anyone if he wanted a baseball-themed Bar Mitzvah.

Start off by sending out our Batter Up Bar Mitzvah invitation to your guests. This exclusive invitation was created by our in-house designer and is available only at! You can even have tickets designed and printed that your guests will need to bring to the party for admittance.

But don’t stop there. Rent turnstiles and have ticket-takes greet your guests at the door. The staff at your event center can be dressed as baseball players or umpires from head to toe. Supply them with stadium boxes that can be filled with bags of peanuts, boxes of popcorn and even Crackerjacks!

Your son may want to dress up as his favorite player. Order baseball cards with his photo and details of his mitzvah on them to pass out as souvenirs. In addition to sporting helium-filled balloons with his name on, you can get personalized pennants to add to the décor.

For decorations, there’s a multitude of ideas available. Assign a MLB team to each table and decorate each in the appropriate colors. For centerpieces, place baseballs inside a large glass cylinder-shaped vase and position small wooden baseball bats around it. Top it off with that team’s pennant in the center.

Use the baseball theme for the cake, too. Have your cake decorator make four square-shaped cakes: one for each base plus home plate. Arrange them appropriately and in place of the pitcher’s mound in the center of the “field” have a cake with your son’s photo placed on it.

We hope you’ve enjoyed reading some of our ideas for planning the perfect baseball-themed mitzvah! What other ideas could you imagine incorporating into this theme?
