The supermom from Its All About Ty and Ashlee shoots and scores with this celebration for her little Iowa State basketball fans 7th birthday.

With just 15 minutes to set up the party at her local gym, Tys mom knew the party décor needed to be simple, lightweight, and portable. Armed with a few DIY projects and handy recipes, this supermom did everything herself, creating a really fun basketball-themed party that scored big with little players.
Foam board and strips of butcher paper combine for a fantastic backdrop resembling a referees uniform. The awesome SEVEN bannercreated with paper plates, electrical tape, and die-cut lettersmakes a bold contrast, and has the added bonus of costing next to nothing! Wooden letters from Pick Your Plum, Modge-Podged with Iowa State gift wrap, personalize the spaceand later became a special keepsake and decorative item for Tylers room.
Theme-colored snacks, like orange popcorn (flavored with orange Kool-Aid), are ready to be dished out into paper trays, for snacking between lay-ups (choose your favorite popcorn recipe). Displaying mini basketballs, aka cheeseballs, in a large apothecary jar really adds a lot to the table, and little b-ball players couldnt stop eating them! Chocolate-covered Oreos, made to look like basketballs, also disappeared fast! Tys mom shares the secret for making these decadent desserts: I don’t use a mold, instead I use a cupcake/muffin tin and place in the candy melts until I think it completely covers the Oreos. It seems to work wonderfully. She used food markers to draw the basketball lines. Cupcakes in team colors with plastic basketball ring toppers were another big hit.
Paper straws and printable images turned ordinary bottles of sports drinks into something extra fun. There was plenty on handas well as juice and waterduring and between games. Basketball is thirsty work!
Every player went home with a favor bag filled with basketball-themed temporary tattoos, a sports-themed wristband, and an inflatable basketball. Tys mom customized the bags with her own printables.
