SpongeBob SquarePants Birthday Party

OHHHHHHHHH…who likes to party under the sea…Brandt is sev-en!!  We are so excited to share the details of Brandt’s 7th birthday party.  There is a lot to see to hang in there!!  It was a SpongeBob party and it was awesome!!  Our kids are at an age where their birthday parties are now no longer themes of our choice but rather a tweak on a theme of their choice.  When B #1 requested the little yellow spongy guy…Shannon and I knew we could tackle this, the fun colors and play on the theme would have all of the kids partying it up at Bikini Bottom. We started with designing a printable collection that could be used for any sort of tropical / underwater themed party.   The next idea that surfaced was that we NEEDED to build a party cart, or in this case…”The Krusty Krab Kandy Kart”…you know just a small DIY project to take on a few days before the shindig.  I will share the tutorial later on.   This was the perfect place to set up all of the treats!

Party Cart - Spongebob Birthday

A way you can really set a theme for a party is to come up with fun name for the candy like we did here…

Gummy Worms = Sqiudward Tentacles

Sixlets = Sandy Pearls

Candy Buttons = Bikini Botton Buttons

Gummy Krabby Patties = Krabby Patties

Laffy Taffy = Sandy Cheek Chewies

Gumballs = Bubble Buddy Bubblegum

The focal point on the Candy Cart was the amazing cake made by Inspired Sugar.  All of their work is amazing and not only is it artful perfection it tastes like a little slice of heaven!!  This was a snicker doodle cake and everyone came back for a second slice!

They also made us these adorable cookies and snickerdoodle cupcakes with plain white icing so that we could add cupcake toppers.  Graham cracker crumbs were used to line the tray to look like sand.

Before the party-goers indulged in all of the sweets we invited them outside to Bikini Bottom for some barnacle bubble fun and a water balloon fight.
