If you’re looking to throw a birthday party with the SpongeBob Party Theme, then I have some ideas for you! I have always been a HUGE fan of SpongeBob, and I couldn’t help but to create this FUN (did you sing the song?) SpongeBob Party Theme decor pack that you can print!
Don’t worry, these printable won’t cost you anything to get, I give them away for free just for you! I know throwing parties can be expensive, and any place you can cut down on costs without cutting down on the party itself is a bonus.

SpongeBob Party Theme
I made these SpongeBob Party Theme printables unisex so you can use it for both boys and girls. I tried to make use of all the main characters so that kids (or adults, because who are we kidding here, I love him!) feel like they’re surrounded by the show during their party.
Cupcakes are generally a must-do for us at birthday parties because I can’t screw them up. I suck at cake decorating and cupcakes are easy, OR I can cheat and buy them store-bought and still make them look super cute with these cupcake toppers I made. You can get all the free SpongeBob Party Theme printables by clicking HERE.
It’s super easy to make the cupcake toppers. All you do is print them out, cut them out, and then tape a toothpick onto the back of the circle and stick them into the cupcakes. Easy peasy.
The banner is a big part of the decor for any party. These banners are part of the free SpongeBob Party Theme printables you can get by clicking HERE. The background is made from pineapples that look like SpongeBob’s house, so they’re perfect for the party theme.
To hang the banner you just need to print the banner, cut out the triangles, and then use a hole punch to punch a hole in both sides of the top of the banner. Hang the banner on ribbon or twine for best results. I run the string in the holes and behind the triangle so you see the banner when you hang it up, not a ton of ribbon and string.

If you don’t want to buy a big themed cake for your SpongeBob Party Theme, you can just buy a plain cake (it can be any theme color or even half polka dots and stripes etc) and put this adorable cake topper on top! This works the same as the cupcake toppers, I just use a bamboo skewer stick instead of a toothpick since it so much bigger. This is also part of the free SpongeBob Party Theme printables. So snag these by clicking HERE.
Food for the SpongeBob Party Theme is SO easy! You can use just about anything tropical or beachy and it will fit the theme. You can make burgers and call them Krabby Patties. You can also use goldfish like I did since they’re already fishy themed. You can also find a ton of gummy sea life you can use for party food as well! You can also make some adorable pineapple-shaped cookies with the cute cookie cutters from this list of all the adorable SpongeBob Party Theme ideas I found on Amazon HERE. The food cards in the SpongeBob Party Theme printable pack are blank so you can fill them in how you need them to. Get creative!
I always make water bottle labels for my printable party packs because they’re an easy way to turn something you will have at the party anyway into something that’s now a themed part of the decor. Just cut the labels out, remove the original water bottle label, and tape the new one on.
I also made these cute jellyfish decor. Cut the SpongeBob riding a jellyfish out and then tape some long pink streamers to the back of it to give it a fun effect! I used three streamers (two are light pink, and my husband told me they wouldn’t show up well on camera, but I didn’t listen) and it looks cute!
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE FREE SPONGEBOB PARTY THEME PRINTABLE PACK:
Water Bottle Labels
Jellyfish Decor (add long pink streamers to the bottom of the jellyfish for a fun effect!)
Extra Themed Decor
GENERAL PRINTABLE PARTY PACK TIPS
I get these printed professionally to save on ink and to make sure they’re high quality. I find it cheaper for me to have some place like Staples of the UPS Store print these for me than it is to use my printer’s ink. Maybe I just need a new printer.
Print everything BUT the water bottle labels on cardstock. Print the water bottle labels on regular paper so they’re more pliable.
Check the printable pack before printing so you can make sure you get enough of each item that you need. I only include a single shet of water bottle labels (which is 5 labels) so if you’re planning on having 30 bottles of water, make sure you print six of that page so you have enough. Use that same line of thinking with food cards, cupcake toppers etc.
Channel your inner Kindergarten self and do your best cutting along the edges of these. When in doubt, go into the edge of the color to ensure there are no white edges. White edges will make it look sloppy. Use good scissors or you’ll be mad.
Outside of the printables, you will need a few other things to make your printables work for your party.
You will also need:
Bamboo Skewer Sticks
Ribbon or Twine
