Party Details (for DIY or Project Description): When my son was born
my husband and I celebrated for a full year with a small cake each
month. The cake tradition continued, but instead of monthly we now
celebrate a half birthday with half a cake! This half birthday we
decided to honor our son and our love for basketball by throwing a
small Varsity Half-Time celebration! The timing was perfect with March
Madness in full swing and with this being a half birthday the concept
was created into a “Half-time” of a basketball game. I knew I
wanted a simple and modern varsity design for the overall tone of the
event, so I selected the first letter of my son's name (M) as his
varsity letter and used navy, light blue/sea foam green, and orange to
pull the theme together.

The dessert table was designed using a vinyl varsity letter M as the
backdrop. I created a bleacher of treats using cabinet rack to raise
the treats into tiers. The first row included goody bags filled with
various candy such as milk chocolate basketballs. The next row
included mini popcorn boxes filled with light popcorn and sprinkled
with navy and light blue M&Ms. The third row was lined with cupcakes
decorated with a small pendent reading halftime. The bottom row had
small baking cups of assorted jelly belly beans. We also had chocolate
covered Oreos designed as basketballs and using the varsity letter. A
must have for our varsity half-time table were the varsity
jacket/sweater cookies! I knew I wanted to have them as cookies!

The table was also decorated with two megaphones I made using 3"
varsity letter vinyl decals, yarn Pom Poms, and a larger pendent.

We had a few favors such as small “gym bags” filled with various
treats, orange gumballs, chocolate bars, and small tins filled with
basketball stickers. We used our printables from A Delicate Gift to
monogram each favor.

One of my favorites of the party was the concession stand of food and
beverages. We served mini burgers and french fries and offered
assorted beverages. Here we again used our printables to label our
fries, burgeres, and beverages. I knew I wanted the beverages to sit
up as bleachers with the waters as the centerpieces jazzed up as
cheerleaders using adorable pom poms I had made! The table was
complemented with a scoreboard.

My little man will always be Varsity to me! I’m so happy we could
celebrate his half birthday with a Varsity Half-time event and include
so many wonderful vendors
