If you’re looking for a fun birthday party, our Basketball Pool Party is the perfect kind of party for little sport lovers.
Two of my son’s favorite things are sports and swimming so we thought we’d combine the two and have a splash of a birthday party, a Basketball Pool Party, which actually was pretty easy with the help of Oriental Trading Company. I just typed in “basketball party” and “pool party” on their search bar and everything from party favors, paper plates, napkins, decorations, and pool floats came up. I had so many things I wanted to buy but narrowed it down to a few of my favorites that I knew my son and his friends would love and since he requested no girls at his party. It made it pretty easy (boy Mom, here).
I started with goody bags and wanted to incorporate the pool along with basketball so I found these awesome inflatable #1 hands that are sports related but pool friendly, go team sunglasses to keep the bright summer sun out of their eyes, both of which come in many colors. Since my son wanted a Golden State Warriors theme, I wanted to stick with yellow and blue. Then I filled the remainder of the bag with candy.
I also got pool floats like this amazing inflatable pizza which next time I will get more than one because this was a very popular inflatable. The kids kept fighting over who got to use it next, luckily it was large enough to hold 3 little ones.
Since we were outdoors and had pizza and basketball cupcakes, I picked out some adorable basketball dinner and dessert plates with blue and yellow plastic utensils for the team colors and also coordinated the small bottles of Gatorade by choosing the blue and yellow flavors.
I was so happy with the variety and quality of the bulk items I ordered from Oriental Trading Company for my Basketball Pool Party that I will defiantly come back to shop for our next party. Might I add that I procrastinated a little and everything shipped very quickly with plenty of time for a deep breath.
