March Madness is upon is, and with it comes all kinds of fun for basketball fans. If you want to host a March Madness party in your own home at Regent's Park, we have you covered with some creative ideas for everything from a blowout bash to a small viewing party with your closest friends.
- Send out invites. First, make sure your guests know about your party! Send out a quick text for a casual get-together, or for a bigger bash, go with a basketball-themed e-vite. Tell your guests to arrive around an hour before game time in order to get everyone comfortable and allow time for late arrivals.
- Plan the seating arrangement. No one wants to miss a moment of the action, so if you don't have a sectional sofa large enough for your whole crew, borrow some chairs, toss out some floor pillows or clear out the coffee table to make room for everyone.
- Decorate for your favorite team. Make things a little more fun and festive by stringing up streamers in your favorite team's colors, buying cups and plates with your team's logo or even DIY-ing things like coasters and party hats for your guests to take home.
- Plan the perfect menu. Everyone loves game day foods, so the menu is huge. Aside from the usuals like wings, chips and dips, whip up shareable snacks like a huge pot of chili, gourmet sliders or a heaping helping of macaroni and cheese. Don't forget the soft drinks, ice cold beer and other beverages, too. If you're looking to cut down on costs, turn the party into a potluck and invite everyone to bring their own dish!
