Basketball Snacks for the Big Games

The love of college basketball runs deep in this house.  When college games are airing,  Eli {my oldest} and my husband are watching them.  Drafts and brackets and madness are all common words at this time of year.  Since the games are going to be on, I thought it would be fun to plan a few game day snacks for the viewers.  Who doesn’t love a little party?

I went to our local Walgreens {conveniently located right around the corner} to get some orange snacks and drinks {you can see more of that shop here}.

I found everything I needed in one place and came home to set up a fun little themed tablescape for the family.  I threw some cheese balls in my basketball serving bowl {a basketball cut in half} …

… poured some Reese’s Pieces into an old trophy cup we had hanging around …

… used an old basketball and a small locker in the background …

… and set out cups and bottles of Coke Zero.  My younger kids were thrilled they got to drink Coke since they rarely get caffeinated drinks!

The most popular treats were my basketball Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!  I used orange icing to pipe thin stripes onto the top of regular-sized cups, turning them into mini basketballs.  {If you follow me on instagram, you got a sneak peek of these yesterday.}

I love turning regular moments into something special with a few simple treats.

We turned on the Friday afternoon games …

… and my basketball-loving teen planted himself in front of the screen with snacks in hand.  Not a bad way to start the weekend!
