The picks are in, your brackets are filled — now all that's left is to watch the Madness unfold. Throw a killer March Madness party that everyone, whether they win or lose, will love. Easy tips for the perfect March Madness party:
• Don't relegate the party to just one room. Instead of having one TV for all of your guests, AssociaLiving recommends turning on multiple TVs throughout the house. That way, you can have multiple games — even untelevised ones streaming on computers — playing at once.
• Torn between multiple teams this season? Rather than decorating in college-specific colors, try neutral colors that everyone can enjoy, says Taste of Home.
• As for the food, think balls, balls, balls — hey, at least it's on theme. Some basketball-shaped foods to try: Arancini (rice balls with cheese), Southwestern meatballs, Persian meatballs Morrocan style, or even chocolate-dipped goat cheese balls for something sweet. Check here for more game day recipes, or the most popular dish for anything sports: Buffalo wings.
As with any party, check up on your hosting skills with easy party-planning tips. Not a basketball person? No worries — check out Mario Lopez's Betty Bracket to vote for your favorite party food, or last year's March Madness Food Fight to see who won the battle.
