Hosting a Basketball-Themed Birthday Party

Tips for Planning a Basketball-Themed Birthday Party

Theming your kid’s birthday party makes the event both exciting and memorable for them. If your kid loves basketball, then a basketball-themed birthday party could be the perfect solution. Today in the Rocky Mount Event Center blog, we’ll give you some tips for making their basketball-themed party one they won’t soon forget.

The Event Venue

First, you’ll need to decide where you’re going to have their birthday party. If it’s basketball-themed, it would be best if the kids can play basketball during the party. Rocky Mount Event Center can help with this. If you have their party here, the kids can use our basketball courts to play and wear themselves out. Plus, Rocky Mount Event Center offers party rooms where you can serve party food and cake, play games, and more.


What’s a birthday party without decorations? If you go to your local party store, you’re sure to find plenty of basketball-themed decorations. Things like balloons, plates, party hats, and more with basketballs on them will be perfect. If you want to add a personal touch, consider getting posters of their favorite players to hand out. If they have a favorite team, you can probably find birthday-themed decorations for that team online.

Food and Beverages

Of course, you’ll want the cake to be basketball-themed. For the rest of the food, simple hot dogs and hamburgers, chips, and soda should be more than enough for the kids. Rocky Mount Event Center has in-house catering, so just ask us about our food options when you book your birthday party with us.


You may be wondering what kind of gifts you should get for their birthday. If you’re keeping with the theme, you have several options. A new basketball is always a good gift, or maybe the jersey of their favorite player. Kids who love watching and playing basketball are also sure to have a pair of basketball shoes they really want. This could be the perfect gift to top the birthday party off with.
