Party Slogan:

After selecting a theme for your party, choose a slogan to use in your invitations, and to use to tie in decorations and personalized favors. Find the perfect slogan for your party by trying one of the following, or by thinking of one that fits your guest of honor’s personality:


Attach a piece of cardstock with party details to a
INFLATABLE BASKETBALLS 14". Hand deliver your invitation to guests.

Blow up an INFLATABLE BASKETBALLS 14", write party details on the basketball, deflate, place basketball into an envelope and mail.

Dress your guests with
SILVER BASKETBALL BLING and BASKETBALL MEDALLION W/BEADS and make some noise for your favorite team

Outdoor decorations:

Attach a bouquet of helium filled balloons and a BASKETBALL BALLOON to a light post or mailbox so there will be no mistaking where the fun will be that day!

Indoor Decorations:

Color Scheme:

When using a color scheme use one or two main colors and build around these. If you choose to use only one color for your decorating, try to add little touches of another color or a lighter or darker shade of the same color to create a more pleasing effect. Adding little splashes of white, black, gold or silver will not detract from your main color choice, and the effect will be considerably more dramatic!

If you have decided to go with a "theme" for your party use colors that relate to that theme.

When using a "theme", choose basic colors, then add some fun props related to your theme to create a spectacular party setting!


Balloons can economically transform any room, backyard or park into a festive space in a matter of minutes by using some of the following ideas:

Use a Helium Tank to fill balloons. Tie Curling Ribbon to balloons, and group them together. (Odd numbers look best: 3, 5, or 7) Place groupings of balloons around the party room.

Tie a bunch of helium filled balloons to the birthday child’s chair, or tie one to the back of each chair.

If you choose not to use helium, tie balloons to varying lengths of curling ribbon, and hang balloons from the ceiling, or from a light fixture over the party table.

 A column of balloons can be used for entryways, photo backdrop, or for a terrific splash of color when placed at intervals around a party room. They can be built to any height you wish. Top off each column with a

Balloon arches are ideal for photo backdrops, entryways, and to hi-light different areas around your party room and are easy to make.

Balloon swags make the perfect accessory. They can be hung across the ceiling of a tent, or a room with a high ceiling like banquet halls or a gymnasium.

Streamers offer an economical way to splash lots of color around the site of the party. Create a fun and colorful effect by draping streamers from the center of the ceiling to the walls on each side of the room, or between trees if the party is being held outdoors. The streamers can be twisted after they are anchored to a ceiling wall or table for a more dimensional look. Two different colored streamers can be placed back to back and twisted for a unique look. They also look terrific hanging from doorframes or cascading vertically down walls.

Table Decorations:

Setting a table with the party ware, including the plates, cups, napkins, and cutlery is the fastest way to create a focal point in a room.

Create a centerpiece using a bunch of helium filled BASKETBALL BALLOON tied with Black Curling Ribbon  to a Black Balloon Weight.

Display a Basketball birthday cake in the center of the table…the guests will love the close up view!

Napkins can be laid out on a buffet table, or can be displayed at each place setting. Place napkins in the center of each place setting at an angle, or unfold them and place them in glasses for a tall dramatic look. The napkins can also be tied (and bundled with plastic cutlery) with a multitude of  basketball items. Try

Party Activities

Heat up the fun while playing games.

A Champion Basketball Pinata is always fun, I've never seen a child turn down a chance to take a swing for a sweet treat.

Your guests will love this Basketball Pinata filled with our 2lb. bag of Pinata Filler. Each paper mache basketball pinata measures 10 inches high x 10 inches wide. The Basketball Pinata will make the perfect activity or decoration at your basketball theme party! Our 2 lb. bag of Pinata Filler contains 1.4 lb. of candy and .6 lb. of toys and trinkets.Not intended for use by children 3 and under.

Party Food & Cake Ideas

The kids will be hoopin’ it up when you serve basketball cake and ice cream! A Sports Ball Cake Pan includes easy-to-follow directions, and can be modified to create a terrific basketball cake.

To make the cake a real standout, purchase a few 12" X 12" linoleum squares from a home improvement store (they are very inexpensive). The tiles can be used as a “hardwood floor” cake board. Use a red paint pen or Sharpie marker to create the three-point line, free throw line, etc. Purchase one individual tile for each party guest, and you’ll have an awesome “placemat” for each place setting.

If you are serving more people than can be accommodated by one boxed mix, which is what this pan calls for, we recommend that you simply bake extra cupcakes, or an extra rectangular cake. All can be frosted in matching frosting, and cut and served behind the scenes.


As the excitement is so high at children’s birthday parties, most children under the age of 10 will eat very little, and the waste can be disheartening. If you are entertaining a younger crowd, schedule your party during a time when parents will not expect that their children will eat a meal…and serve only cake, ice cream, and a few other munchies such as popcorn, cheese balls, grapes, or M&Ms

If you are serving a meal, serve typical "sports spectator" concession stand food – hot dogs, nachos, soft pretzels, pizza, chips, popcorn, and snow cones. Use Star shape cutouts to label each dish with a creative name. Double Dribble Dogs (hot dogs), Bounce Pass Burgers, Full Court Nachos, Free-Throw Fries, Slam Dunk Dip (cheese dip), Big Pass Pizza, Chest Pass Cheetohs
(cheese balls), Alley-Oop Apple Bites, and Fast Break Grapes would all be fun to serve and eat! The leftover shimmer stars can be used to create place cards for each all-star at the party!
