Top 10 Basketball Decorations and Themed Party Supplies for March Madness

March 11, 2013

Basketball season at the college level is headed toward March Madness, when NCAA conference, invitational and national championship draw millions of viewers to stadiums and their television sets to watch one of the world’s most exciting forms of competition: College basketball.

March Madness is a great time to invite friends over to watch the college basketball world go crazy over Cinderella teams and rolling dynasties.

With the guys and gals in your life cranked up for watching college hoops together, it’s time to get your house ready for March Madness. Here are the Top 10 Basketball decorations and party supplies for College Basketball March Madness

#1. The NCAA College Store Decorations

The NCAA College Store should be your first stop for March Madness party supplies. Just seeing the logos of top basketball schools is enough to make some people drool for March Madness, a cold beer and their favorite team in action. Start with metallic balloons supporting your favorite big time team, like the Illinois Illini 18” Metallic Balloon, emblazoned with your favorite team logo and colors.

#2. Team Color Combinations

Make Team Color Combinations banners in every college sports team imaginable.  Choose any size banner from 12” X 24” in which everyone can sport their team colors for only $14.95 to full sized banners at 48” X 96” and every size in between.

#3. Basketball Fan Inflatable Cooler

Fill up the Basketball Fan Inflatable Cooler with beverages and everyone can get their March Madness on, responsibly, of course. This inflatable cooler is designed with nets on the side and a rim up top of the vinyl, durable cooler. Put some ice around the oversized basketball inflated in the middle and every drink will look like it’s helping the ball go “swish.” The basketball inflatable color is 14” deep by 29.5” across. Sits on a table or on the ground or floor.

#4. Basketball Sets for your own March Madness

The classic Basketball Set with soft foam ball is now an American institution. You know how it works! The hoop installs easily with suction cups. Attaches to any surface and makes a great bit of fun at your party or as a party favor for everyone to take home. Set one up and let your nervous fans work off some energy popping set shots through the hoop. Basketball Sets are sold for $16.70 per dozen, each set sold in its own polybag.

If you want to host your own tournament, the Basketball Game Set comes with a real-looking hand-sized basketball and colorful backboard. Only $7.80 and packed in its own polybag.

#5. 16” Inflatable Basketball

Sometimes you need something to bounce around the room and keep the party lively, and the 16” Inflatable Basketball is a fun thing to have round. In fact, you can order 12 of these in one shot for only $8.00. Now that’s a bit of hoops fun.

#6. Basketball Pennants Banner

Set the mood for college hoops action using the Basketball Pennant Banner. Each holds 10 basketball pennant flags 8.5” X 10.5”. Only $2.95 per banner for 1-11 banners, down to $2.40 per banner in case you’re hosting a party at the local eatery or pub and want to turn the whole place into a basketball palace.

#7. Basketball 2 ½” Stress Balls

Let’s face it, when the college hoops bracket is on the line and there is money on the line, you might want Basketball 2 ½” Stress Balls around to let people work off energy in quiet, constructive ways. These basketball party favors come in their own decorative box, only $10.70 per dozen. Each ball fits neatly in the hand and can be thrown at the screen, but we do not recommend that for reasons of safety and possible expense. Squeeze the ball in frustration if your team is behind. That’s much healthier for your and your LED TV.

#8. Don the Referee Apron

College referees do a lot of work to keep college basketball games fair and safe,  but so do cooks and party hosts, so the Referee Apron is a good way to remind people to respect the party rules, especially if you need to make a call on who’s been overserved. At $15.05, you might want to set up a whole referee crew, or give them away as awards for best behavior under party pressure.

#9. Basketball Cascade 18” Centerpiece

Avoid the dull and boring party table with the Basketball Cascade 18” Centerpiece. The 18” basketball cascade centerpiece is just $5.20 and will snazz up your food and beverage table. Shows you’ve got a little basketball class.

#10. Sports Team Face Paint

Sports Team Face Paint is the ultimate sign of a true fan!  Order Blue, Green, Orange, Black, Purple and have at it. Your party will transform from normal old basketball to March Madness in 10 minutes or less!
