This year's March Madness is just around the corner. With The Big Dance approaching fast, millions of fans are waiting in anticipation and regularly checking the March Madness Bracket. Websites like BetUS are brimming with college basketball bettors as the hype of the upcoming March Madness is filling the air.

That being said, many fans - sadly - won't be able to make it to the court this year and show support to their favorite teams. Luckily, if you're one of them, you can still host a March Madness-themed house party and join the euphoria. Here are just some house party essentials that will bring The Big Dance straight to your home.

Deck your house in your team's colors

The first and the most obvious thing you need to do is embellish your home in the colors of the team you're rooting for. Hang the team's flag on your porch and even get a door wreath that features the same color combo. If you have any memorabilia, use them as indoor decoration. For cups and plates, you can easily find paper and plastic options in various colors or even featuring different sports designs. Of course, wear your sports jersey and encourage your guests to do the same. Aside from these, you can also make different DIY decorations and spread them throughout your home.

Prepare fun activities

Aside from watching the game, you will also want to have a few fun activities planned out for the time before and after the game itself. For instance, you can do some face painting and embellish not just your house but your face as well in your team's colors. Depending on the crowd, you can also organize karaoke, charades or trivia to ensure that everyone stays well entertained throughout the day.

Prepare lots of food and drinks

Since a sports watching party is usually a whole-day event, you want to make sure you also prepare enough food and drinks for all of your guests. Aside from the main dish - that can easily be barbecue or even pizza - make sure you also prepare plenty of finger food and snacks. Additionally, you can also encourage your guests to bring snacks and drinks, so that you don't run the risk of running out of either mid-game.

Therefore, if you can't make it to The Big Dance this year in person, try to bring the atmosphere to your home instead. Have your friends and family join you for this year's March Madness and root for your favorite team from the comfort of your own home.
