"Half" Time Basketball Birthday Party | Hoopla Events | Krista O'Byrne

“Half” Time Basketball Birthday Party

UntitledIf you love celebrating important milestones, you will adore this “half” time basketball birthday party theme by Trixy of A Delicate Gift.  We were thrilled to provide Trixy with some of our baking cups for her refreshments. Don’t be surprised if the photos by Jessica Torosian Photography cause cheering!  The details are amazing!

Trixy describes herself as a proud mom who because of her love for parties likes to celebrate every milestone with some sort of festivity.  When her son was born, she and her husband celebrated every month for a full year with a smash cake.  (Can I be a part of your family Trixy?) Trixy continued this fun cake tradition, but instead of monthly,  they now celebrate a half-birthday with a half-cake.

For her son’s half birthday this year, they decided to honor him and combine their love for basketball by hosting a small varsity half-time celebration!  They couldn’t have hand-picked better timing with March Madness and the NBA Finals in full swing.  Keeping with the half birthday concept, they chose to go with a “half-time” basketball game theme.  You better believe it was chock full of perfectly preppy basketball birthday party details.

With her game plan set, Trixy got to work developing her simple and modern varsity design.   Trixy decided to use the first letter of her son’s name (M) as the varsity letter of choice.  She focused on a color palette of navy, light blue/sea foam green and orange .  The color combination really pops!

Basketball Oreos

Trixy scored big with the food and beverage table set up at this basketball party.  She designed a striking scoreboard which she displayed on an easel.  I love the creative details–like using her son’s birthday (9/24) for the score, but reversing the dates so the home team was in the lead at the half!

One of my favorite details is the bleacher style “seating” for the water bottles.  All dressed up in custom labels, these water bottles were ready for their half-time party debut! With custom pom poms from Tiffany from Fizzy Party they almost look like cheerleaders in the stands!

Trixy also added the festive pom poms to her dessert table to embellish the megaphones.

Speaking of the dessert table, you won’t want to miss all the impressive details.  How perfect is the vinyl varsity style monogram “M” backdrop?  This is a custom detail from Ten23 Designs. I love how additional bleacher style displays were carried over to the dessert table.  They were perfect for adding height to the table and also provided plenty of surface for showcasing custom popcorn boxes, cupcakes (Triolo’s Bakery)  waving pennant flags & our very own navy striped baking cups filled with colorful orange jelly beans.

Lettermen’s jacket cookies and varsity Oreos looked amazing neatly displayed on beds of orange candies. Aren’t you just blown away by the details?

Of course the MVP of the dessert table had to be the 1/2 cake by Chickadee Hill Cakes.

No party fouls here.  In addition to sweets and treats, Trixy served up a delicious assortment of fan favorite comfort foods including mini burgers, fries and other snack food. Of course pairing yummy options with coordinating embellishments like printable logos and toothpick flags is always a winning combination.

When “half-time” was over, favored party fans were sent home with “gym bag” party favors with custom varsity style hang tags and gable box wraps.  Gumball tubes from The Party Fairy were filled up with orange gumballs.  Don’t they work perfectly with the theme?  Custom wrapped candy bars and decked out tins were also ready for a fast break!

I’m sure the crowd at this basketball birthday party left cheering for the home team, Mason & Trixy.  What a fun celebration!
