How to Plan a Baseball-themed 16th Birthday for Your Son at Home

"Take me out to the ball game." Oh, how we wish! But even if your family will be homebound for your avid baseball fan’s 16th birthday, you can always bring the game into home field with a baseball-themed birthday celebration. Think homemade party details decorated with baseball symbols and accessories, classic ballgame food treats from hotdogs to popcorn to peanuts, and homebaked goodies playing up the theme.
