March Magnifico!

Basketball Party

Even though our beloved Georgetown did not make it to the NCAA Tournament this year, we are still eager to celebrate during these last few weeks of March. This year, March has come in like a lion and is exiting like one. Check out a few of these fun party tips for the ultimate March Madness party. All of these ideas can be used for any sports theme celebration as well.

Basketball Themed Drinks

Despite the cold weather, let’s lighten up with the beverages. These adorable and tasty March Madness 3-Point Jell-O shots with vodka soaked cantaloupe basketballs from are the perfect little pick me up.  Also this Slam Dunk punch as featured on The Chew is a refreshing alternative to your average beer.

Finger foods are always the best way to keep your guests moving and minimize mess. Even simple foods can be spiced up with clever labels and attractive linens. For instance, an ordinary pizza as featured in Catch my Party is a perfect addition to the festivities.

This idea can be expanded to many different foods, for instance the homemade cheese sticks with dipping sauce shown by B. Lovely Events.

Food Tip: If you are not feeling as ambitious in the kitchen just get some frozen meatballs and put four different sauces in decorative cups for dipping. This can be a feature in your March Madness food table.


Looking for a sweet pick me up? The unique peanut butter dip from Julie’s Eats & Treats will certainly surprise your guests. If you want something more traditional, this simple and elegant cupcake tower of basketballs topped with a mini cake as featured on Catch My Party is an excellent anchor for your dessert table. Finally, we really love this amazing concoction called Traci’s Buzzer Beater Brownie Sundae’s from Beneath my Heart.
