Perusing Pinterest: March Madness Treats {and Party Ideas}

Written by:

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!
