SpongeBob SquarePants Birthday Party

SpongeBob Party Ideas, SpongeBob Square Pants 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)

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 24th is this year’s 9th 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.

Admittedly, with the official Soup Swap Day  to pull together this party in time for the official Soup Swap Day, it is a bit late to send out formal invitations. So we did some digging and found this absolutely perfect soup swap invitation on Purple Trail that an be emailed to your 5 guests for absolutely free. (Caveat: the site can be a bit confusing at first but is definitely worth the effort. It seems as if only paper invitations are available but after you personalize the invitation and proceed to order you will see 3 tabs on the top of the page. Just click the one that says SEND ONLINE.) Don’t put this off. It shouldn’t take much more than15 minutes to personalize the invitation and send them out. Another option is not to worry about the official date and host the party next week or even the week after. There are still plenty of cold winter nights ahead before we even begin to switch up our menus to cool refreshing entrees.

What else you and your 5 guests will need:

  • 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

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 at The Wine Spies. Continue Reading →

PartyIdeaPros is loath to admit we have dropped the ball and never did put together a complete Frozen theme party despite the fact that Disney’s Frozen officially became the best-selling animated film of all-time in 2014.  We do have some great Winter Wonderland and Winter One-derland party ideas that although they do not feature any of the Frozen characters contain some great ideas that can easily be incorporated into most Frozen parties.

Having said all that, we were thrilled to come across this Olaf Frozen Party Theme designed by Birthday Express and featuring their extensive collection of  Frozen party supplies. If you and your child cannot get enough of Frozen, you’ll definitely want to check out these party tips.
