Maybe find some plastic toy jeeps and fill with little baseballs and plastic computers or whatever electronics. www.orientaltrading.com might help with some ideas.
You could make a ball diamond from green plastic tablecloths. Add all the markings and fill paper bags with popcorn, with some peanuts in the shells scattered around for decoration. Guests could munch on these while visiting. A few party horns would also look great around the diamonds. Good luck.
Try going to the dollar store or a party store and go into the children's toy area or the party area. There are lots of boys toys there. Try taking one of the jeeps, tie it to a color coordinated pipe cleaner, and stick it in a pretty basket. Do this with how ever many items he likes. fill in spaces with maybe Spanish moss? Crushed tissue paper also color coordinated.
Use those metal flower holders used to make arrangements and secure them with glue gun. the flower holders have squares already in them and stick a pipe cleaner with a baseball on it in the square. I mean plastic baseballs, or paper ones or toys that you give out to kids at birthday parties. baseball cards, electronic things should be no problem; dollar store has fake cell phones, etc. Sorry I'm not very good at this, but I hope it helps a little.
I would like to do something creative for my husband's 40th birthday. I went to an event where they had dump-trucks filled with flowers for the centerpiece and my husband thought that was pretty cool. He is a big mopar car fan and I want to incorporate his love for cars in the centerpiece. I know there are many ideas with tablecloths and the whole bit, but I'm really just looking for centerpiece ideas. If anyone could help I'd appreciate it.

I know some of the miniatures are a bit bigger and you could use the beds as toothpick holders, or even for candles if it's an evening party. (05/19/2005)
