Yes, it's basketball season! Basketball is my favorite sport. I like to dribble the ball up and down the court. The beginning of each season is an exciting time for all basketball teams and fans. When it comes down to the end of the season, it's about basketball banquets and celebrations.
Most teams host an awards banquet at the end of the year. If you are in charge or helping with this year's basketball banquet you have come to the right place. You'll want to know about decorations, food and gift ideas for your graduating seniors; or perhaps your school gifts to every player on the team.
Basketball Banquet Food Ideas
You can do a full sit down dinner, brunch or maybe keep it simple with walking appetizers or desserts. It really depends on the format of your evening. If you have speeches and and videos many parents prefer a sit down dinner so they can enjoy while listening to the presentation. Spaghetti and meatballs is always a good choice on a budget. Check out this cute idea we found on Pinterest. Looks like it can be easily made with some paper cups, paper, a marker and cheese balls.
Basketball Banquet Decorations
You can put player jerseys on the chairs as chair covers. This is an easy and free decorating tip. Use balls, pom poms, trophies and other items for unique centerpieces.
