A little more than a week ago, my little nugget turned one! We celebrated his birthday at home on the day of with a small celebration and a mini smash cake so that we could have a more intimate moment with him and celebrate his first year of life. Then, when the weekend came, we celebrated his birthday with family and close friends with a basketball-themed first birthday party – Carter’s Basketball Bash. As with many moms planning their child’s first birthday party, I was super overly excited and super obsessive about how I wanted this party to turn out. And with COVID-19 and tropical storms threatening the happening of his birthday party, we were able to have clear weather and have a socially distanced birthday party celebration.

For this basketball-themed birthday party, we wanted to make sure that everyone felt they could have fun. To be honest, first birthday parties often don’t feel too welcoming for adults who don’t have. young children themselves. At the party, we made sure there was fun for everyone including a moon bounce where the younger children and the adult children could enjoy themselves as well.

For the snacks and drinks, we DIYed a lot of things including the basketball court taco dip (see ingredients below), his dessert table scoreboard, and the orange fizz drink that was the specialty drink for the party.

The dessert table was plentiful since we had two cakes – one for him to smash and the other for everyone to eat – along with cupcakes, gourmet cookies, and the basketball Oreo pops which were also DIYed.

We had a great day and there were so many special elements for Carter’s 1st Birthday Basketball Bash. I’ve included as much detail regarding the party along with the vendors that we used and the ingredients that were used to create some of our DIY delectables. Just keep heading through the rest of the post and you’ll soon be able to have your own basketball themed birthday party!

The basketball court taco dip was made at home using guacamole on the bottom as the base, then layered over with refried beans. Sour cream was then layered on to make the paint and then outlined by black olives. Salsa and shredded mexican blend cheese was used for the edge of the court and the top of the key.
