Hello sports fans!

Did you catch any of the college sports action over the weekend?   If you like ice hockey, wrestling or basketball, there was plenty to choose from.

The first and second rounds of both the men’s and women’s March Madness tournament had some pretty exciting moments.  My favorite was when the #8 seed Wisconsin Badgers upset the #1 seed (and defending National Champions) Villanova Wildcats!  Go Badgers!

Since my Wisconsin Badgers will be making the trip to next weekend’s Sweet Sixteen, I’ll be wearing a lot of Red and White this week, like the easy Spirit Bracelets I showed you a few weeks ago, and the stylish Recycled T-shirt Scarf from last week.

If you love basketball, you are probably already thinking about which games you’ll be watching this coming weekend, and maybe even planning a watch party with family and friends.  So this week I decided to pull together some great ways to throw a memorable party, whether or not your favorite team is playing and trying to make it to the Final Four.

So try some of these suggestions, and enjoy the game(s)!

#1 – Serve up your favorite munchies in these DIY Basketball Serving Bowls from Make Life Lovely:
