Basketball party decorations

This is a nice basketball-themed candy buffet set up, complete with a variety of orange candies, cupcakes, drinks, cups, paper straws, and black and white striped referee gift boxes. That basketball bowl with the peanuts in it is really cute and I love the large letter B. Finally, I also love the accent of the mini pair of shoes!

These cupcakes are easy to match to a basketball theme party. First, you’ll ice them with white frosting, decorate them with ribbon, then add a printable flag to a toothpick! These flags are super easy to assemble and they are very cute. You can find the basketball candles here.

You’ll also be able to use a printable bracket sheet that you can fill in while you root for your favorite team! At first, we did have one included in the printable basketball party set below, but was old and had outdated information on it. We recommend you print out a current one for your basketball party!
