Seattle Prep's baseball team recently hosted a lunch in honor of their teachers, and asked us to dream up a fun and delicious snack table that would make the faculty feel like they were enjoying an afternoon at the ball park. We had a blast with this event, and came up with something to make Dave Niehaus, the late, great Seattle Mariner's announcer, proud.
"My oh my!"
The full display, complete with retro American flags, wooden crates, and of course an old-fashioned Louisville slugger, was a huge hit.
Our hand-prepared treats included a Jelly Belly mix of Seattle Prep colors, complete with a Moonstruck Chocolate Co. chocolate ganache and peanut butter baseball truffles. A definite home run!
The spread included major league favorites, including Cracker Jacks and Big League Chew. Yum! But the real fun is in the details:
Our custom foil-wrapped chocolate baseball favors reference Steve Cox field, where Seattle Prep's team plays. The delicious chocolates are paired with a custom blend of Jelly Belly has that crisp infield green.
Our centerpieces for the long center table featured more favorites, including delicious red licorice in a Ball canning jar, decorated with string. The paper hot dog container holds gumballs in Seattle Prep colors. Down to the peanuts and grass in our center jar, we went all out! What can we say? We're suckers for America's game.
Coca Cola in old-fashioned glass bottles put the perfect nostalgic spin on the centerpieces. We passed out bright red straws to match!
Finally, we couldn't resist throwing in some red hots to honor the Seattle Prep team, who went on their own red hot streak this year: the varsity squad went undefeated in the regular season!
We just love putting together special events like this! What about you? Do you have any favorite candies for days at the ballpark? Are you putting together any theme parties this summer?
