Space Jam

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times: the best events come from a clear and compelling vision. When a vision informs the theme, and not vice-versa, parties are more pleasant, gatherings are more gleeful, and meetings are more meaningful. Believe it or not, a Space Jam theme is a creative event idea that came to us from a vision for impact.

Fundraising with the Looney Toons

Looney Tunes

Raising funds for a nonprofit like YMCA, the Boys and Girls Club, or Hoops for Hope is compelling in its own rite, but that doesn’t mean the occasion needs to be boring! So what does a Space Jam theme deliver? Two things. First, a beloved set of characters and a vibrant set of colors for decor. But second, basketball! Basketball challenges make excellent fundraisers. Participants solicit donations in advance for every hoop they make, with all proceeds going to charity.

Attire: it’s a team thing.

Decorating a Gym to match your Space Jam theme

Obviously, a gymnasium is not what most think of as a beautiful event venue. That being said, some simple additions can make your local school’s activity center a very welcoming and festive place for impact.

Balloon installations are one of our favorite ways to bring a splash of color to a space. And yes, there is such a thing as a basketball balloon arch which will add the perfect decor to a Space Jam theme.

Basketball doesn’t have to be entirely familiar.

Okay, you may be thinking, “basketball?” Can’t people play that in their driveways. You may be right. If that’s a concern, think outside the box. Consult a rental company to secure epic, high-impact rentals that bring an entirely new meaning to “basketball party.” Items like…
