March Madness Pinspiration

March Madness is officially here. And if you talk to Mike for more than five minutes, you will quickly find out that he loves UNC. Tar Heel basketball is consuming our conversations, television, and radio. They recently won their conference tournament and are projected to do really well going forward. And what better way to celebrate a good season? Why, themed food of course! I have rounded up some fun Pinterest finds for a March Madness get together. Most of these are UNC themed but they can be customized for any school you wish (other than NC State and Duke, lol.)

These cakes are amazing!

Confession: some of these pins were found by searching "Frozen" and "baby boy shower". Whatever works!

So tell me, which team is your house rooting for this month?

  1. I love Tar Heel blue! It's such a pretty shade of blue! Is your husband from NC? We are Alabama fans in my house no matter what, but I really think UNC's colors are the prettiest. Love the themed food!

  2. It would be so fun to throw a march madness party! I think Butler is in (obviously I pay a lot of attention), so I think I would have to root for them. My brother went there so I feel like I have some sort of tie to that school!

  3. Love all of your UNC food pride, and the way you found some of the images is hilarious. I'm sure Mike would really appreciate that! :) My husband lives and breathes for VA Tech. Football season can get a little ridiculous.

  7. Such good pinspiration! Things are so much cuter in Tarheel Blue... my team made the record books by being the first team to go 10-6 in the ACC and not get invited to either tournament, so I guess I'll be cheering for all of the other ACC teams this weekend!

  13. I am still on cloud 9 from our win on Saturday, but I am pumped for our game tonight. Our neighbors always gave us Tar Heel themed gifts at Christmas and we would save some of the goodies for tournament time. We've had sugar cookies, UNC pasta, and everything in between. My sister went to UNC and one her friend's wedding cake had the Old Well as the topper and the rest of it was argyle. It was so pretty. Let's get a victory tonight. GO HEELS!

  16. I'm rooting for my boys - Wisconsin Badgers. They did pretty dang well last year & I'm surprised with how well they've been doing this year especially after losing FOUR of their top guys to the NBA. I have to do one more bracket & then I'm ready for games to begin! :)

  20. Rah rah tar heels!! Love those tar heel cakes! But then again I love cake in general.

    I've been a tar heels fan since my toddler days, and Sophie can wear my toddler shirt, you know that shirt is now well over 20 years old. Maybe if we're lucky and I manage to keep track of it, Sophie can have her daughter wear it hahaha.
