  • Perusing Pinterest: March Madness Treats {and Party Ideas}

    With March Madness in full swing, it’s time to get serious. So what better way than to host a March Madness party using Pinterest as your all-knowing guru and guide? (Disclaimer: if you are wondering what March Madness is, please remove the rock that you’re living under and get yourself a computer or head to the nearest bar!)

    We digress. Anyway, if you were to have a March Madness Party, hypothetically, there would be a variety of things there, such as:

    1. Basketball Cake


    2. Basketball Chocolates

    Technically this was made for a groom’s cake, but it’s totally NOT over the top for a March Madness party.


    3. March Madness Table Layout


    This website has adorable ideas for making it a basketball-centric evening!

    4. Basketball Cake Pops

    Hudson Cakery came up with something similar… {see below for a friend’s birthday carrot cake // cake pops}:

    Outta this world.

    5. Basketball Cupcakes

    More sugar. More rockin’ it as a hostess.

    6. Basketball Sugar Cookies

    Last sugar high, promise.

    7. Basketball Nails

    If you want to deck yourself in basketball gear but don’t have time to buy a jersey or read up on who is actually in this tournament — paint your nails!


    8. Date Night: March Madness

    The Dating Divas said it right– what better way to impress your significant, basketball-loving other than with a little March Madness date night? Tuck some pretend basketball tickets (with a little note about watching the game together), make some fun bets, and see if you get lucky!


    Have some other ideas for basketball-oriented craftiness?

    How are you watching the games – perhaps in Hoboken (or totally not interested at all)?

    Tweet HG– we wanna hear!
