Scooby Doo Birthday Party

19 09 2011

For Romy’s fourth birthday he requested a Scooby Doo Birthday party.  My first instinct was to go online and order the typical hats, plates and tacky table covers.  I started doing some poking around on the internet and realized even though the birthday is themed I can add tons of personal touches.  The kids invited to the party ranged from 6 months to 13 years old….so instead of planning activities I just let them all play,  and the kids had their fun doing whatever they wanted to do.  I was so lucky the weather cooperated with usgiving us the perfect day for an outdoor party!

I made the party hats.  I loved all of the great ideas I found on Pinterest and came up with these cuties.  I will never buy a party hat again!

Favours were a combo of me and my wonderful friend Maria who printed off the Scooby Doo graphics for me.   I think everyone needs a Maria Smile   I gave away Scooby masks. magnifying glasses, balls, bubbles, and scooby doo rings.  Its always tricky to cusomize for different age groups but putting everything in orange sand buckets worked perfectly to help keep them sorted out.

I ordered the Scooby Snacks from an online grocer in the U.S. They are so cute and made the best favours.  Sadly, I don’t think they are making them anymore.
