Do you have a Basketball fan in your house? Then throwing a basketball-themed birthday party for them is a must. It will take your little basketball player by surprise and serve as one of the best memory in their life.
We have put together some expert tips to help you plan a basketball birthday party. Let’s dive into the preparation:
You can ask your child to help you create a crafty invitation or browse through online templates. To craft an invitation, cut out a basketball shape from orange construction paper and draw black lines over it. You can note the party details on the back of the invitation. You can also click a picture of your child in their favourite jersey. Send it as an invitation with party details written on the back of the picture.
Choose your child’s favourite team colour. Decorate the venue with balloons and streamers of a similar colour. Make or buy pompoms, hang them from a wall, or place them on the table. You can decorate the walls with posters of your child’s favourite player or team.
You can also decorate the food table to look like a basketball court with a light brown shade of tablecloth. Create the lines on the court with some pin strapping tape. Place a small net on the table and give your guest a Nerf-type basketball to make their practice shot.
A basketball-themed cake for basketball birthday parties is a must. You can hire a professional cake artist to create a 3-D basketball-themed cake, or you can DIY one at home.
You can mix all different types of treats and candies to represent the colour of your child’s favourite basketball team. Serve those little athletes some hotdogs and burgers to fuel their energy.
