Make your Party a Slam Dunk!

Basketball Season

The NBA season only gives you six months of enjoyment (unless your team makes the playoffs). But during those 6 months, you can watch your favorites play 82 times. Usually, this means there are at least two games a week for any given team, so that gives you ample opportunity to have multiple parties! And that doesn’t even count all the NCAA games you could be watching too!

Basketball Invitations Whether you are having the gang over for beers and cheers or hosting a function for the kiddies, we’ve got your invites covered! Choose from Hoop Dreams, Basketball Mickey Mouse, Playoff themed, and more! These invites are the sure way to let everyone know your party will be a slam dunk!

As always, try to add a little something extra to your invitations to make your guests feel special. Stick some basketball stickers on the envelope to give them a hint of what’s to come on the inside or write the address in your favorite team’s colors. All you need are some basic magic markers and you’re set!

. Basketball Decorations When people are driving up to your house you want them to recognize it as the place to be, especially if they haven’t been there before. Tie a metallic basketball balloon to your mailbox, door handle, lamppost, or whatever. Heck, even tie two or three up to really draw attention.

Decorate your door with this basketball party zone door cover. Combine that with a 7-pack of basketball cutouts taped to the windows and you’re guests will know they’ve come to the right place.

. Now when they open that door and step on in, you’ve got to wow them. They’ve seen the fantastic outside, so show them what you can do with a ceiling! Try taking these basketball string decorations and instead of just letting them hang down, try and re-attach them to the ceiling every few feet for a fun sort of wave affect. If you do just want to let some decorations hang down, try mixing in these basketball whirls. Depending on how high your ceiling is, they should hang playfully above your guests’ heads. Speaking of playful, guests young and old can delight in a basketball piñata. No one is going to turn down the chance to hit something and get candy out of it. And just so you have everything you need: piñata bat and mask AND piñata candy filler.

If you’ve got any open white wall space you want to hide, you can either fill it modestly with some basketball pennant banner going across the top or around the trim of the room. OR you can fill that space with your very own basketball theme custom banner. It comes in a variety of sizes and you get to enter in your own message. It’s an easy way to give a shout out to the birthday boy/girl or let everyone know which game you’ll be watching. To add an element of surprise and action to your space, try strategically placing these basketball player cutouts. Hide some around doors or put one in the bathroom for company. With a variety of action stances to choose from, you can feel just like you’re in the game when they are around the room!

. . . . Basketball Food

If you can get a big cookie or a cake that is decorated like a basketball via icing, that could work as a pleasant dessert for everyone. For snacks, try anything that can be ‘dunked’. That leaves your options wide open in terms of dips. It’s always good to put out a veggie platter with dip as well as a cheese and cracker with dip option. You can also supply items which have been ‘dunked’ like caramel apples or corn dogs.

Make your food table the ‘player of the game’ for your party by having it show team spirit! Put down a table cover featuring your favorite team. You’ll never have to wonder who’s got the ball with only seconds left on the clock when you pass out these plates. That goes for the cups and napkins too! Some smart black plastic ware and a referee shirt serving tray are all that you are missing when putting together this dream team. .

. Drop either this basketball centerpiece or this 18’’cascade centerpiece in the midst of your table to inspire your guests to eat more and cheer louder when the game is on the line.

. . If anyone is feeling beat and needs a drink during a time out, have one nearby with this basketball inflatable cooler. Feel free to designate one for the kiddies so there is no confusion. Now that would be a party foul!

. . . . Basketball Necessities With all your decorations and friends helping to put you in the basketball mood, it will be a safe bet you’ll want to play if you can. If it’s too cold to head outside, then just set up this basketball game set. Coming with a backboard, hoop, and ball, you’ve got everything you need to live your dream of making the game winning shot. Is the wall a good enough backboard for you? Check out this basketball set then.

. Feel like being a bit goofy? Of course you do! To show everyone you are crazy about basketball, put on this basketball plastic hat. People will call a time out just to admire your hat!

Is the game coming down to the final minutes? Freeze the other team at the free-throw line with noise makers! Use your basketball maraca, clapper and air blasters.

And when the final buzzer sounds on your party, don’t let your guests walk away empty handed. Get some assists by passing out basketball themed loot bags to your teammates (partygoers)! Fill them up with the goodies in this basketball favor pack. Or mix-n-match items like these: basketball stress ball, key chains, kick-balls, and inflatable hands.
