Basketball Party Ideas
We recently had a basketball birthday party in our family, however these ideas are also great for celebrations that are not birthdays. It was simple and didn’t take too long to create some fun basketball themed party decorations for the main party table. We used a set of awesome matching basketball party printables which made it so easy.

We printed out some basketball party signs and slipped them into some dollar store photo frames. The matching basketball party printable set that I used includes party signs, party banners and bunting, drink labels, candy bag labels, straw flags, basketball decals, popcorn boxes, napkin rings and more.
It really made my party decorating an easy and quick process. These decorations would suit both adults and kids.
To make the water bottle labels, simply print them out and cut them into strips. Remove the water bottles normal labels and wrap these themed strips around them. Secure it with sticky tape or you can also use clear contact paper over the top of the paper if you want to make them waterproof.
