I got the Spongebob "Happy Birthday" banner from Party city for around $5. The inflatable ring toss was also from Orientaltrading.com ($10). I figured we can still use it this summer once we open up our pool.
The Spongebob Balloons are from the Divisoria, 25 cents a piece! We inflated them using our compressor.
We hired a balloon artist/magician so we had to set-up a stage area for him. The banner was a gift from an aunt from the Philippines. The Spongebob Back drop is from Party City ($10).

PICTURE & DANCE ZONE
I added this sort of "picture-taking-space" on one wall. I bought this super cute inflatable whale from Orientaltrading.com and some inflatable wigs from Lakeside collection.com ($6 each).

PRIZES AND GIVE-AWAYS
I mostly got the stuff for the prizes from Divisoria and clearance sales from Walgreens and Walmart. Spongebob is very popular so finding prizes was easy peasy! :->

But to spice things up a bit, I added this Nacho Bar with chili and cheese! Yum! T'was a hit! I also made some lemonade, to make it truly feel "summery beachy"!

After weeks of preparation, I can say the party was a huge success...
