Tip #1: Planning is Everything
Since the World Series is a best-of-seven competition, it’s critical to determine exactly what game day you will be celebrating. For example, do you want to kick off the Series with a party, or do you want to wait until game four when it could be all tied up and the game on the line! Once you nail down the timing, plan on getting your invitations out quick! These can be send through either snail mail, email or even hand delivered. But because there are so many possibilities for great baseball themed invitations, take some time to create something original and fun!
Tip #2: Get Your Hot Dogs, Peanuts, and Popcorn, Here!

Tip #5: Plan for Downtime
Baseball is considered one of the slowest paced sports in the world. As a matter of fact, it is also one of the only team sports that doesn’t have a time limit or clock to regulate the pace of the game. So plan on downtime during your party. To take advantage of these long commercial breaks, pitching changes, and brouhaha’s, make sure to have a baseball and glove handy to create an impromptu game of catch or even a little game of pickle.
