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

What Do I Need For The Party?

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.

Start a Healthy Winter Tradition – Host your 1st Annual Soup Swap Party!

Soup Swap Party

Another who woulda thunk it moment! January 20th (the 3rd Saturday of January) is this year's 13th Annual Soup Swap. We originally read about this creative party idea in Sara McColl's Yahoo article entitled “The Only Party Invitation We Want This Time of Year” and followed the link chain to the the Soup Swap Facebook page. I guess it shouldn't surprise anyone that we were intrigued. A winter party theme that is easy to organize, allows you to keep your weight loss / get healthy resolutions, has very little cost associated with it. And best of all you get to go home with one of the best party favors ever –  6 quarts of delicious soups, enough for dinner for a week.

Soup Swap Party Supplies

What else you and your 5 guests will need:

  • Six (6) Quarts of delicious homemade freezable soup
  • Ball Wide Mouth Quart Jars with Lids and Bands
  • Each invitee should pour the soup into the individual mason jars.
  • Jars should be labeled with the chef's name, the name of the soup and the date prepared (you can even include the mason jar labels with your invitations)

The host should prepare an extra pot of soup to be served with a loaf of warm bread and a bottle or two of fabulous discount wine from The Wine Spies. Or need it quickly, check out Saucey. Continue Reading →

New Years Party Planning, Ideas, & Supplies

By: Amanda

There is still plenty of time to organize a fun and festive New Years Eve Party or New Years Day Open House! We must fess up — this is the one party each year we most enjoy hosting. Our favorite theme of all time is “Your Favorite Things” party. We asked each guest to usher in the New Year by bringing something to represent his or her favorite things. Guests brought family favorites such as poppy's butterscotch crunchies, tenderloin in honor of a cook-out we hosted a few years back, and homemade tamales. One year, one of our neighbors, a musician, brought his favorite band along with band groupies and a Hollywood celebrity who showed up in a regal purple suit and honored us all with an impromptu New Year's Eve medley! We always have tons of food, drinks, music, and games displayed in plain view and begging to be played. Charades and Table Topics are perennial favorites. Generally we use New Year's Eve as an excuse to use every dish, bowl, and platter in the house and then we supplement with small plates in every imaginable shape.
As always, Party Idea Pros has done the research for you and has put together the best of the best New Years products available so you can quickly and easily determine what you might need or what you might like for this year's New Year's Celebration. Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year filled with peace and joy, love and laughter!
