BASKETBALL PARTY IDEAS
This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading. They have lots of basketball party supplies to choose from. Check out Oriental Trading for some of the items I used for this party.
CREATE A SPORTS LOUNGE!
Teens and tweens just want to hang out with their friends. Create a cool hangout space by transforming an area of your house. For this party, we transformed the garage into a cool sports lounge. How cool is this! We also transformed their mud-room area in the garage into a locker room. The blue bags hanging on the hooks and basketballs were there for each guest to take home. Use plenty of basketballs too all around the party space. These can be given to guest’s when they leave as a cool party favor!
GIRLFRIEND TIP: When transforming an empty space like a garage, rent lounge furniture from a local rental company to create a lounge-like look. These two leather couches and side tables were all rented. Best thing…they deliver and pick up!
FEATURE THE GUEST’S FAVORITE TEAM!
Find out your guest of honor’s favorite basketball team then use the team’s colors to decorate the space. You can also decorate with posters featuring your guest’s favorite team and players! Here the boy’s favorite team was the Golden State Warriors. They hung these posters in their rooms after the party.
USE PERSONALIZED DECORATIONS!
Teens and tweens love to see their names displayed in their party space. Decorate with foam cutouts of basketballs and jerseys in their team’s favorite colors and their favorite player’s number.
USE PERSONALIZED PRINTABLES!
SET UP A SNACK BAR!
SERVE YUMMY SNACKS!
Whip up easy finger foods your guests will enjoy like these Cheez-It crusted meatballs. They are easy to make and kids love them served along with dipping sauces. Check out my Cheez-It Meatball recipe.
SEND GUESTS HOME WITH BASKETBALL PARTY FAVORS!
In addition to the full-size basketballs and canvas bags for each guest, I used wire containers to hold mini basketball stress balls and basketball keychain party favors for each guest to take home too.
SET UP A PHOTO BOOTH!
Teens and tweens love taking photos! They especially love using photo props. Set up a backdrop on a backdrop stand and place these foam fingers and emoji face prop sticks nearby and watch as the kids have a ball posing and taking photos!
