There are several different ways you can decorate your Scooby-Doo theme party. Here are some groovy suggestions.
- For a colorful Scooby-Doo theme, decorate with a groovy 70s vibe. Use beanbag chairs, beaded curtains, shag neon carpeting and hippie flowers as decor. Play some far out music and set up a dance floor.
- Use glow in the dark stickers, decorations and glow sticks along with flashlights to create a spooky vibe in a dimly lit room.
- Decorate with a Scooby-Doo pinata and place Scooby ears at each placesetting.
- Set up a snack bar with lots of food piled high to represent Shaggy and Scooby’s love of eating. See more food tips below.
- If your party is near Halloween, have a Haunted House Scooby Doo party! Decorate with fake cobwebs, plastic spiders and bats, monster masks and other spooky decorations. Ask guests to arrive in costume.
Since Shaggy and Scooby love to pig out, the more food at your Scooby-Doo birthday party the better! Anything goes if it’s piled high and served in abundance. Here are some more Scooby-Doo food ideas for your party.
- Scooby and Shaggy love milkshakes. Make your own by blending ice cream with a cup of milk and adding a silly straw as a final touch.
- Serve sandwiches and arrange them in stacks for each child to grab one.
- Serve foot long sandwiches or foot long hotdogs.
- You can make your own Scooby Snacks by cutting cookies into the shape of dog bones with a cookie cutter. Then pipe the words “Scooby Snack” on each cookie.
- Make ghost lollipops by covering each lollipop with a tissue and placing a rubber band around the top of the stick to hold it in place. Then draw eyes and a mouth on the head of the ghost.
For the cake, you can ask your local grocery store if they have a Scooby-Doo themed cake or decorate your own. Cut a square cake into a diamond shape and then pipe yellow icing on top around the border of the cake. In the middle of the cake, pipe “SD” to look like Scooby-Doo’s collar tag. Check out our delicious double layer chocolate cake recipe to get you started.
