Today we have an amazing basketball party that we styled that is definitely a slam dunk! There are so many cute details here and the good news is most are easy DIYs! From the adorable backdrop the the fun themed foods, there isn’t anything we don’t love about this party. Basketball parties are great for your little dude or your charming man in your life to celebrate their birthday. We also love throwing parties for March madness viewing parties and the NBA finals and these basketball party ideas would be perfect for that!
• The easy treats like basketball chocolate covered oreos and dunkers jello that you can whip up in a snap
• The black and orange color palette that is seriously lovely
• Hanging basketball lanterns
Basketball Party Treats
Chocolate covered Oreos are a party favorite and these basketball ones are too cute to boot. With just a few steps and ingredients, you can whip these up as a fun treat at your basketball party. The best part- no baking required!
These are a great 2 bite treat that only take a few ingredients and steps to make. They are fun and delicious. You can’t get any better than that!
These are another fun basketball dessert that is really easy to make! I just pour orange gelatin into mini shot glasses and topped them with vanilla wafers I decorated with the basketball pattern using the black glitter icing.
Popcorn is another party favorite of mine. We displayed them in these fun Basketball Party Favor Treat Boxes for an easy grab and go snack for guests.
Pretzels are another great basketball party snack. These vertical boxes are great for the basketball look too because they look like ref shirts!
Trail Mix is another crowd favorite at parties. Adding in little toy basketballs really make it fit right into any basketball party!
These cheese balls snacks are the perfect basketball orange and make for great grab and go snacks!
Basketball Party Decorations
We love water bottle labels as a cute detail at a party. We found these darling basketball party ones on Etsy and just wrapped them the bottle and secured with tape.
We always love a good mason jar decoration and these hand-painted ones are quick and easy. They definitely make a statement at this basketball party and are also perfect for holding silverware or other fun basketball party goodies in.
These basketball food cards really bring out the basketball theme to this party. The letterman jersey font is a perfect fit for the basketball theme. These are a great DIY, with steps that you can do over and over again for any party theme.
We used our Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine to make these cards. They were so easy to make!
We also added some x’s, o’s and arrows to these bowls to give them a fun basketball play design. You can cut these out with white vinyl on your Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine and just apply them. It’s a super easy DIY!
We love this Tier Metal Bookshelf Rack to display all of the fun basketball treats and décor. Adding creative display elements to your dessert and food set ups can make a big impact.
The Basketball Paper Lanterns were one of our favorite details of this basketball party setup. They are so fun and add that pop of detail everywhere.
We just love this basketball party and all of the fun elements in it. We hope you do too!
