SpongeBob SquarePants Birthday Party

If your child is crazy for the character who lives in a pineapple under the sea, throw a SpongeBob SquarePants birthday party! Read on for our ideas on creating a perfect SpongeBob SquarePants birthday party with ideas on decorations, favors, games, invitations and more.

Who is SpongeBob Square Pants?

Deep down in the Pacific Ocean in the subterranean city of Bikini Bottom lives a square yellow sea sponge named SpongeBob Squarepants. SpongeBob lives in a pineapple with his pet snail, Gary, loves his job as a fry cook at the Krusty Krab, and has a knack for getting into all kinds of trouble without really trying. When he's not getting on the nerves of his cranky next door neighbor Squidward, SpongeBob can usually be found smack in the middle of all sorts of strange situations with his best buddy, the simple yet lovable starfish, Patrick, or his thrill-seeking surfer-girl squirrel pal, Sandy Cheeks. In Bikini Bottom, fish walk, blowing bubbles is art, and the tastiest undersea treat is a deep-fried Krabby Patty Burger. Dive in and soak it all up with SpongeBob! (SpongeBob Square Pants TV Promo)

Party Essentials

Party Idea Pros has an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties. We say keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple. We love hula hoops, beach balls,, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments. Generally, the number of guest should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two. Never, ever deliver invitations as school, unless every single child is invited!!!!! Skip the jumpies and the pony rides.

Peace and Love Party Theme, Ideas & Supplies

One of our favorite parties of all times was Portia's Peace and Love theme Bat Mitzvah party. It was not only colorful and festive, the theme was thoughtful and perfectly appropriate for the occasion. Ever since, this theme has sat patiently waiting on our “to do” list. Recently we received an email from Shauna planning her daughter's 8 year old birthday party and looking for “peace and love” theme ideas. So finally we have an excuse to move it right up to the top of our list. As we began gathering the best of the best “Peace and Love” party supplies, we quickly realized its versatility since it can be dressed up and down, made elegant or cute. You can decorate this party in bright neons or in Thanksgiving and holiday colors. Not only is a Peace and Love theme perfect for adult and children birthday parties, sweet sixteen, quinceanera, and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, it is also a meaningful fund raising theme, festive holiday party theme, and great for a kick-back, college party or school dance.
