Nickelodeon kicked off SpongeBob’s 20th birthday party with a sensational screening of SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout at their Nickelodeon West Coast Headquarters in Burbank, California on June 27, 2019. Nickelodeon always knows how to throw a phenomenal party. After a Q&A with the SpongeBob SquarePants cast and a screening of the special, guests were able to take part in tons of magnificent activities. At one of the stations, attendees were able to create their own beach bag. Guests got the chance to customized their beach bag with stamps and have a cute tote perfect for the summertime!
At another station, attendees created their own sea terrarium. Using colored sands, starfishes, shells, and beautiful rocks and crystals, the sea terrariums made a perfect decor.
Other awesome activities at the event included face-painting and a photo-booth. In addition, there also was a photo-opp area of SpongeBob’s famous pineapple home made out of balloons.
The event also had some scrumptious, SpongeBob-inspired food. Guests filled their tummies with Krusty Krab burgers, fries, and fried macaroni-and-cheese. The dessert table was a sweet-tooth’s heaven. All of the treats were so vibrant and fun to look at (they were even more enjoyable to eat as they were oh, so yummy!). Guests were able to try out chocolate-covered oreos, sand dollar snickerdoodle cookies, pineapple-designed cake-pops, chocolate-covered rice krispies, pineapple cake in a jar, cupcakes and candy. Wow, oh wow!
