There's good news for all of you basketball fans out there—March Madness is only a couple days away! The annual college tournament is a popular tradition for fans both young and old. If you're gearing up for the games and plan on throwing a March Madness party in your home, be sure to follow these festive decorating guidelines.
- Festive food: Food is one of the most important elements of any party, especially when your get-together is sports related. Treat your guests to an array of appetizers, ranging from chicken wings and mozzarella sticks to a healthy hummus spread and fruit plate. To stay with the theme, try making basketball-shaped dessert. Simply bake vanilla or chocolate cupcakes and decorate them with orange and black frosting to mimic a basketball!
- Themed décor: "Decorations are essential to a party's success. You can dress up your walls with your favorite team pennants, have your guests eating in style with [basketball themed] dinner plates or add some humor with March Madness buttons," suggests blogger Jeremy Piccirillo on lifestyle website She Knows. "Just make sure you don't go overboard and take away from the big game." If your favorite team is heading to the big dance, choose a color motif similar to their jersey. Are you a Tar Heels enthusiast? Luckily baby blue looks great in the home sector. If you're a Syracuse fan, you can add orange accents to stay on trend. Use your creativity!
