One of the coolest themes for a Bar Mitzvah is basketball. Youngsters who play the game, and are great fans of it will love to have this as their party theme for any big milestone celebration. Linzi of Linzi Events introduces us to some fabulous ideas to score extra points with this theme, at our next celebration. So, let’s team up and dribble up to these parties. The fun is about to begin!

The bar is a wonderful display with the bright orange color, associated with basketball, in focus against the white background. The glow of warm yellow lights adds a brilliant touch to the arrangement, and sets the perfect party mood. Floral arrangements in orange in white vases are a befitting addition the décor.

Guests can dance through the evening on the dance floor, which has been personalized with the colors and logo carefully chosen for the event.

The party venue is a continuous palette of orange and white, with orange table linen in stark contrast against pristine white chairs. The main stage is decorated with elaborate orange floral decorations that  are a vivid picture against the white backdrop. I love this idea of featuring the Bar Mitzvah boy playing basketball, in black and white photographs with just a few orange accents that make it remarkably attractive.

The table linen was custom made in orange and white with a print resembling overlapping basketballs. The napkins in orange have white napkin rings that further tie it to the theme of the party.

This party décor is planned around the two signature colors of the chosen team. Magnificent yellow spheres of roses tower over smaller globes of hydrangea, in a rich blue shade. It is a captivating centerpiece that works very well on a long table.

Decor items include basketballs and caps in the same color theme. Enclosed in transparent glass boxes, these are given a place of honor as memorabilia that are apt for this party.

Now, here is a dinner table that is simply sensational! Basketballs, footballs and tennis balls are arranged meticulously in the glass base of the dining table, while towers containing basketballs and footballs form attractive centerpieces.

Invitations are drafted in textured paper resembling the surface of basketballs, and are personalized with a suitable logo. The design is both original and interesting. It conveys what a great party is in store to the guests.

The indispensable kippah for the Bar Mitzvah is made to represent a basketball, and this seamlessly integrates to the theme.

What could be a better party favor than real basketballs packed into boxes customized with the team colors and chosen logo! It is bound to be a smashing hit with all the guests, irrespective of how old they are.

We thus come to the end of this entertaining basketball party. Didn’t you enjoy Linzi’s slam dunk ideas? A special thanks to her for sharing these excellent ideas with us.

Birthday celebrations are always fun, whether you are young or old! Shirley’s big 5-0 celebration was a huge hit, thanks to the exciting party Stacy Tucker of Sugar Crush put together. Come along and feast yourself on her imaginative ideas, and be inspired.

Every birthday deserves to be heartily celebrated, and this fantastic array of rich treats made sure that the guests at Shirley’s party could indulge in the very best. An elegant green and white cake with a zebra stripe ribbon occupies the center. Pretty cake pops in four different designs are arranged on a foam base with a polka dot border. More black and white polka dots appear on the napkins, and form a beautiful contrast against the oversize spring green ruffle flower. The spread includes bite-sized dessert squares, and a tiered arrangement of delicious cookies. The green accent in the color palette forms a winning combination with the white and black, and has a sophisticated finish.

The party favors are assorted milk chocolates customized with an array of pattern covers that tie to the color theme of the party. Groups of four chocolates are packed in transparent packaging and adorned with a black silk bow and Thank you message. The favors are packed into a wide glass container, forming an attractive display.

From up close, you can see how neat and pretty the favors look. I just love the elegant color combination and the harmony of the different prints used as candy wrappers. The thank you note is simple and uncluttered, but the green and black lettering on a white background packs a punch with the “50 and fabulous” tag line.

The guests are treated to a variety of drinks. The towering wall silhouette that displays the number 50 in white, commands attention and forms the perfect backdrop for the colorful arrangement in front of it. Large tubs with crushed ice hold rose-colored drinks, while tall beverage jars welcome the guests to refreshing drinks. The fruit slices and chunks that float in these jars look refreshingly cool.

Paper lanterns in green, black and white create a colorful and cheerful vibe. The décor of this table brings together the serene green flower pot with white blossoms, the ornate white frame with the green and white message, and the ruffled chartreuse flowers together, to create an attractive display.

Whether this message was for the birthday girl or the guests, it is an amusing one, and the choice of colors is brilliant, and soothing. How cute are the 50th birthday spectacles in black beside the frame?

Here is the birthday cake for the big celebration. The black and white striped ribbon is the perfect accessory for the simple green and white cake. The glittering green cake topper that reads 50, is complemented by the many pops of miniature size 50′s. I love the idea of using black and white striped and polka dot candles to match the theme perfectly.

Don’t you agree that spread was just perfect for the big event in Shirley’s life? Thank you Stacy for inspiring us with these brilliant ideas.
