Wintertime means basketball in our house! Our two little players love the game and we are having a Basketball Party to celebrate them! We love to watch them running up and down the court as they learn teamwork and good sportsmanship.
To celebrate their hard work on the court we honored them with a Slam Dunk Basketball Party!
Let me show you how I created an easy Slam Dunk Basketball Party for our little players.
A royal blue plastic tablecloth topped with an orange polka dot craft paper table runner sets the basketball party color scheme. Little Boy is always my decor helper. He insisted we include their baseball trophies on the basketball party tablescape.
I love how inexpensive orange paper plates pop against the simple white dishes. Thank goodness Elsa graciously agreed to help set the table.
The china cabinet got festive with a banner made from crepe paper streamers and a fun Slam Dunk Basketball Door Decor. Promise to share that tutorial soon!
Hitting up the after Christmas sales is a planned event on my January calendar. I may have startled a little old lady with my shriek when I found these basketball ornaments in the 90% off section. Hanging them from the chandelier adds a fun vibe basketball party.
To make our Slam Dunk Basketball Party was easy as possible we choose to celebrate with Marie Callender’s Pot Pies. As a busy mama with always hungry boys, I love the ease of serving these to our family.
Our local Walmart carries a variety of Marie Callender’s Pot Pies. They were easy to find on the frozen food aisle of store. If you would like more information about different varieties of pot pies please visit PotPiesPlease. #WarmthInACrust
The children loved popping the golden, flaky pie crust in their hungry mouths. My favorite part of Marie Callender’s chicken pot pies is the homemade gravy. It is delicious mixed with vegetables and all white-meat chicken. Every taste feels like homemade goodness.
I paired them with simplest dessert I have ever made: Two Ingredient Chocolate Fondue!
Paired with a variety of fresh fruit and marshmallows the chocolate fondue was the perfect sweet treat for our Slam Dunk Basketball Party!
The chocolate fondue was Little Boy’s absolute favorite. He ate so many dipped marshmallows and strawberries I had to make him stop!
Yes, I realize his basketball jersey is on backwards. He was way too excited about the slow cooker filled with melted chocolate to be concerned with that.
Super Easy Chocolate Fondue Recipe
- 11.5 oz Bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
- 14 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Small Slow Cooker
Set slow cooker to low then add the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Cook on low for two hours or until chocolate is melted. Stir frequently to combine chocolate and sweetened milk.
After filling up on Marie Callender’s pot pies and chocolate fondue, the boys were ready for their afternoon basketball game.
Don’t worry I made Little Boy switch his basketball jersey to the right side before we left. Love my sweet boy.
