SpongeBob SquarePants Birthday Party

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)

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.

Best Food Gifts for the Holidays >> The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower

Best Get - The Fruit Company Holiday Gift TowerYesterday (December 6, 2012) I opened my front door and had a wonderful surprise waiting for me.  Jed over at The Fruit Company had sent me The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower to review.  In full disclosure, companies send me “stuff” all the time and very seldom do they make it onto Party Idea {Pros}.  We only post reviews of products we would buy ourselves and 100% recommend to others.

Let’s start with the presentation of The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower

  • This gift tower is very lovely – large enough to be impressive but not so big as to be gauche. The red, green and white boxes and ribbon capture the holiday spirit perfectly.  We especially like that all the boxes coordinate rather than match.  This gives the entire presentation a modern, chic sensibility.The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower  - Apples, Nuts & Truffles

The contents of The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower

  • 1 Pecan, Cherry, Hazelnut Truffles – 3 oz – DELICIOUS – so good in fact that before I had even unpacked all the rest of the boxes, my family had devoured the chocolates.
  • 1 Chocolate Covered Cherries – 4 oz. – These are quite good, if you like cherries in your candy.  Personally, it is not my thing but the chocolate around the cherries was to die for.
  • 1 Mixed Nuts – 4 oz. – Very fresh with just enough salt to satisfy me but not too much salt for my mother-in-law who prefers unsalted nuts.

The fruit was all yummy – among the very best we have ever received.  For a change none of it was over-ripe!

  • 2 Fuji Apple(s) –
  • 3 Bosc Pear(s) –
  • 3 Comice Pear(s)
