 This is what Dona said about planning the party– “I had so much fun planning my son’s 4th birthday party. It was a basketball themed party for the biggest little basketball fan that I know. From the tablescape and sweets, to the decorations and favors, to the ultimate Basketball Junior World Sports Games jumper, the party was truly a SLAM DUNK! In planning the party, I started with my email invitation from RedCappi that I designed myself with our event details in the party scheme colors. On the party day-of, I adorned the table with a Party City NBA Spaulding tablecloth, and draped a second tablecloth on the back wall of my kitchen to create a backdrop and an awesome photo opportunity. The dessert table featured delicious handmade goodies by KK’s Bakeshop, including cupcakes, cookies and chocolate covered Oreos. All the sweets and desserts were featured on cake stands and serving plates onto which I had glued coordinating basketball-language for a really cute overall display. I even found basketball themed Arizona Kidz Iced Tea at Dollar Tree. I kept it simple and placed the party favors right on top of the table and invited all to help themselves to their choice of mini plastic basketballs from Target, wooden basketball peg games from Dollar Tree and Basketball Nightlights from the 99 Cent Only Store. I added matching colorful balloons arranged in clusters up top of the photo backdrop to give us a home win. Outside, we held a slam dunk contest. The kids and adults alike had a blast with the Junior World Sports Jumper I ordered from Party On Rentals, which featured five popular sports activities (including basketball) all under one inflatable play structure. It was so much fun! Oh, and of course no party would be complete without the right attire, so the birthday boy wore a $5 Basketball long sleeve T-shirt from Target, with neon green jeans from The Gap. For my daughter, I just purchased a smaller size of the same shirt from Target, with a coordinating neon green tutu from The Gap. It was totally perfect!”
