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.

Cute Costumes for Teenage Girls

Teen Costumes ! Looking for the perfect costume? A fashionable teen costume for Halloween, plays, parties or other events?  There are so many costumes from which to choose, Party Idea Pros is highlighting just a few of our favorites.

Most teenage girls we know travel in packs and love coordinating their costumes.  One year all the high school girls dressed as storybook characters.  Another year they all dressed in neon.  Not sure yet what this year will bring … crayons, candy, goth, witches, goddesses, sesame street, superheroes?   Whatever they choose, I have no doubt the teen costumes will be too short and too sexy for their parents' taste!

Click on the links or pictures for the teen costume for details but remember, the photos below just give you the overall look. Quite often you can choose from a variety of options ranging from almost dowdy to quite sexy, so be sure to click on the “see more” links option when you visit the costume site.  Many of these costumes are specially sized just for a teen but don't worry if they are not.  Most of the x-small or small adult costumes will fit just fine.   If they are cut a bit too low for your taste,  add a tank top underneath.  If they are too short … that's why leggings were invented.  🙂

Use PartyIdeaPros.com's Oscar night ballots as a starting point for choosing your nightly movie. Most of the nominated films are currently available on DVD or through Amazon on Demand. Stick with Party Idea Pros simpler Movie Night celebration package ideas for your summertime viewing parties.  Then pick two nights during the summer to glam it up with our Lights, Camera, Action and Hollywood Nights celebration packages.

Organizing a block party or reunion? Hosting an all school barbeque/fundraiser, a sweet sixteen or teen party, an adult or children's birthday party, or  even anniversary party?  A backyard movie night is a wonderful theme for any warm weather event.  Just choose your movie to suit the occasion  — think John Wayne, Sponge Bob, Legally Blonde, The Parent Trap, Casa Blanca, Star Wars, Rear Window, The Shawshank Redemption Twilight and New Moon double feature and the list goes on and on.
