I love to host events. But I super hate to cook for events…way too much pressure and stress and mess for me. So I’ve spent years mastering the art of kitchen-hacking the easiest offerings possible for a delightful gathering. Here’s my easy to-dos to do a quick, easy, no-bake basketball party.

Here’s your shopping list for this. 25 items, max. (I got every bit of it at Target.)
Basketball Oranges: Cuties and a Sharpie
Vegetable Appetizers: Grape or cherry tomatoes, spinach dip, carrots, celery, snap peas, hummus, jalapenos (I actually got these from my yard but they had them at Target), cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire sauce, bacon.
Chips and Dips: Chips, avocados, sour cream, cilantro (use tomatoes from above), salsa
Hot Dogs: Hot dogs, hot dog buns, mustard, whatever else you like to put on a hot dog
Dessert: A package of shortbread cookies, ready made icing, microwave popcorn
I hope it’s a slam dunk.
