Guest post by my friend and basketball lover, Dawn. Welcome Dawn :)
Every year, basketball lovers across the county spend countless hours preparing their brackets. And even more hours watching all the games. The first round is usually action packed, with lots of upsets. And every year, it does not disappoint. My favorite part is watching four games at once!
Sadly, my UCONN Huskies were unable to play in the post-season, due to sanctions. But there were plenty of other teams to watch. And new favorites to discover -- who will be this year's VCU?
How does this relate to parties? My best friend and I lived together in DC, and started a trend of hosting a party for the Final Four. For decor, we had a giant poster of that year's brackets (filled out). We also had some posters of our teams hanging on the walls. Everyone wore t-shirts of their college or affiliation, whether or not they were still playing.
You can plan your activities based on the timing. On the west coast, the games start somewhat early, which lends itself more to a backyard BBQ than dinner. On the East Coast, we were indoors with games to go along with the game. Be creative!
Other key features:
Good finger food
Good arrangement of televisions -- we had a big one in the living room and a small one outside
Sports themed paper plates/napkins
Thank you Dawn for a wonderful easy party idea. Lots of great tips we can use for our sports parties.
