Party Planning

Making its debut in 1999, quirky and innocent SpongeBob SquarePants has captivated audiences young and old with his infectious laugh and wacky adventures. Currently, in its 14th season, the series has inspired several movies and spin-offs throughout its duration.

Unsurprisingly, little ones continue to follow the antics of Bikini Bottom’s most lovable resident. Today, we’ll explore how to plan a wacky SpongeBob SquarePants party and the Party Decor, Food, Cake, Activities and Invites you need to make your next SpongeBob Birthday Bash a success.

Nautical Décor

Create an underwater world fit for SpongeBob and all his friends by using green crepe paper to resemble seaweed. Simply twist and attach vertical pieces to a wall. Transparent balloons can be hung to look like water bubbles. Attach pink crepe paper pieces to pink balloons to create the famous jellyfish SpongeBob is always after.

An arch with two shades of blue and a few yellow balloons can be a focal point for the cake or snacks table. Decorate with pineapples and starfish to continue with the Bikini Bottom theme. Nautical decorations, such as a life preserver and fishing net can also add to the overall ambiance of the party.

You can also use a battery-operated bubble maker to add to the underwater atmosphere.

Silly Food

Don’t forget to keep your little guests fueled throughout the festivities. Here are some easy snack ideas you can serve during the party.


  • Mrs. Puff’s Puffs – Make individual cheese puffs bags or serve them in a bowl.
  • Plankton Jello Cups – Add an eye and an angry eyebrow above it to green Jello cups to resemble Mr. Crab’s archnemesis, Plankton.
  • Pineapple Fruit Bowl – SpongeBob’s pineapple home can be hollowed out and used to serve as a fruit bowl. Attach a few windows for added whimsy.
  • Cookies – Character cookies are sure to make a splash!
  • Gummy Worms – Add them to a ‘Chum Bucket’ and you’re ready to go!


  • Krabby Patty – No SpongeBob SquarePants party is complete without the food he’s most famous for cooking!
  • Chum On-a-Stick – Mini corndogs can be an easy alternative meal for your party.
  • Sea Snails – Pigs in a blanket can resemble sea snails and keep with the underwater theme.


An underwater-decorated cake topped with SpongeBob characters seems like an easy choice. However, you can also opt for a yellow, rectangular cake decorated to look like SpongeBob SquarePants himself. If you want to go above and beyond, a pineapple-shaped cake would make for a unique treat.

If you’d rather go for cupcakes or cake pops, keeping with the theme and decorating them as the series characters can also be a fun delight.

‘Chummy’ Invitations

There are so many ways to have fun with invitations to a SpongeBob party. Choose your kiddo’s favorite character and base it on that. Or go with a nautical theme to tie everything together. Let your imagination make waves! Yombu can also help if you are pressed for time or inspiration.

Lively Games & Activities

No party is complete without some fun and games. Keep the kiddos occupied with these ideas.

  • Jellyfish Catching – Create a Jellyfish Field with pink balloons and pink paper streamers. Attach the balloons to the ground. Hand the kiddos catching nets and see who can catch the most in a timed competition.
  • SpongeBob Bean Bag Toss – Decorate a large box to look like Mr. SquarePants. Cut an opening for the mouth and let the games begin!
  • Inflatable Pool – Add moist sand to an inflatable pool and add a few beach toys for the kiddos to play. Alternatively, you can add water and some rubber toys for them to go fishing.
  • Treasure Hunt – Make a map and have the kiddos find the treasure.

My Final Thoughts on Planning a Wacky SpongeBob SquarePants Party

Lovable SpongeBob has captivated audiences for 25 years with his quirky misadventures. Celebrate your little one’s love for this quirky character by planning a wacky SpongeBob SquarePants party with this easy guide.

What Age Group is a SpongeBob Party Appropriate For

SpongeBob was created for Children aged 6–11 years old. But that doesn’t mean younger Children can’t watch the show or that a SpongeBob themed Birthday Bash isn’t applicable for younger Children and Toddlers.

We have taken part in SpongeBob themed events for all ages of Children and believe that it is a fun and colorful theme that captures the imagination of any age group from teens to toddlers.
