March Madness? Throw a Basketball Party

With basketball season in full swing and March Madness nearing, now is the perfect time to throw a basketball themed party. This is also a great option for anyone that is a huge basketball fan with a birthday coming up or for school basketball banquets. Regardless of if you just want to celebrate March Madness or want a basketball party in general, we have some great ideas for you.

Party Place has a fantastic selection of basketball themed party essentials like utensils, plates, cups, napkins, decorations, and cute little extras. We also have some fitting centerpieces, team specific party bags, and so much more. You can check out the full collection here or in-store.

Alright! Let’s get into some ideas for the basketball party whilst using the Party Place collection!

Let’s start of strong with the food options. The best part about sports parties, especially basketball ones, is that it is usually pretty easy to make your food match the theme. Since basketball uses an orange, round ball, with black circular rings, it it pretty easy to recreate the ball on various foods!

My three favorites are shown below. These mandarin oranges are so cutie and easy to recreate for sure. Additionally, the cake pops really hit the sweet spot and are an easy alternative to a big cake. Lastly, these cheese puff parties are simply to die for. With a regular printer, cup, and sharpie, you can have the darndest basketball hoop snacks ever.

 Every party food smorgasbord needs a sick table setup. This table below is serving as my big inspiration for color palette and vibe. Let’s take it to the next level though by replacing the black and white striped balloons with these basketball ones and adding this incredible Spalding Ball Table Cover to the mix. We are obsessed with this.


In addition to all of the fun decor we have to offer for table centerpieces and photo booths as found here here, I love the idea of adding in a “Team Shop” to your party. You can find these inexpensive mini basketballs online or at most big retail box stores, and set up your own shop to “buy” a basketball. Think about adding custom jerseys and shopping bags as well to really amp up the bit. This takes party favor to a completely different level.


I love this idea so much, and i think it adds a flavor of true uniqueness to your party that would have people talking about it for ages!
