Whether you’re into professional basketball or hockey, it’s the start of a new season. So why not have a party to kick off the NBA or NHL season? Even if your team isn’t a favorite to win it all, there’s still hope. So why not root them on?
What’s the best way to start the season? With an NBA Basketball theme party! It’s time to get all of your b-ball loving friends together, fill the room with snacks and the occasional malted beverage and root for the home team.
Try cutting out a basketball shape since unusually shaped invitations get more attention. The NBA season is very long and the season opener doesn’t have the tradition that baseball does. So you can have a kick-off party all the way up to Christmas. Just pick a day that fits your schedule and that your team is on TV.
These are the best players in the world so you know the main activity will be watching the players on your 65” Samsung QLED Smart 4K TV from Buydig.com. But it never hurts to toss in a team trivia contest with some team gear for prizes. If you have a hoop set up in your driveway or nearby, you can use the half time for a quick foul shooting contest or just have a “shoot-a-round”.
The main ingredient of a successful NBA basketball party is to have plenty of snacks, and a good supply of drinks – both with and without alcohol. Keep the drinks cold in a basketball cooler. Serve “arena food” for the event like hot dogs, popcorn, peanuts, nachos, etc. Your guests won’t miss any important plays while snacking when you have the 82” Samsung Smart 4K from Buydig.com for watching the game!
Join the millions of hockey fans who meet in living rooms every year coast to coast to watch the NHL. Decorate the buffet table in your favorite team colors as you cheer on your team towards the Stanley Cup!
Use your favorite team colors for napkins, tablecloths and other party ware. Decorate the walls with hockey gear such as hockey sticks or helmets, printable banners, or hockey posters.
Chow down on party food that’s easy to eat and serve. Create a fruit pizza on a cookie sheet. Spread out the fruit on top to resemble the lines of a hockey rink. Cream filled chocolate cookies or rice cereal treats cut with a round cookie cutter and dipped in chocolate make perfect “hockey pucks”. Make hockey sticks out of pretzels sticks and place them on top of cupcakes.
Hockey Hangman is a variation on Hangman’s Noose, where players fill in the missing letters to solve the word puzzle using hockey terms and player names. Print out a photo of a puck and a goal net to play Pin the Puck on the Goal.
Send your guests home with a goodie bag filled with red licorice hockey sticks, hockey puck chocolate candies, team stickers, team photos or playing cards.
Here’s hoping your team gets off to a great start this year and maybe this is the year they make it in to the finals!
