Scooby Doo Party Ideas & Decorations

When planning your Scooby Doo party take advantage of the many Scooby Doo themed products for sale such as plates, cups, decorations and favors.  These products will get your theme started and then you can add your own personal touches.

Scooby Doo is all about spooky characters.  Decorate with mummies, ghosts and monsters.

  1. Use monster masks or skeleton skulls as centerpieces and scatter gummy worms or plastic bugs on the tables like you would confetti.
  2. Decorate with themed balloons such as skull or spider balloons.

A Scooby Doo party isn't complete without a Haunted Mansion.

  1. Drape white sheets over the furniture and spread cobwebs around to make the party area look haunted.
  2. Hang bats from the ceiling and a few fake rats on the floor.

Draw a picture, purchase a poster or wall decals of The Mystery Machine and hang it on the wall along with some posters or wall decals of Scooby and his friends.

Using brown construction paper cut out paw prints and put them in your driveway leading to your front door. Or leading to the party area.

Make Scooby ears and use as party hats. To make these ears you will need the following:

  1. Plastic head band, Super Glue,Brown construction paper,Pink Construction paper
  2. Cut the brown construction paper to look like ears,
  3. Cut the pink construction paper to look like smaller ears (this will be the inner ear)
  4. Glue the pink small ear on top of the brown large ear (the pink should be positioned to look like the inner ear) to make an ear
  5. Glue 2 ears on each headband spaced apart to look like Scooby's ears.

A birthday party isn't complete without balloons and streamers. Keeping with the Scooby theme use his colors such as green, yellow and purple balloons.   

Scooby is also a hippy type of dude so peace symbols and 70's flowers thrown into the decorations fits right in.


Goody Bag Ideas: Put the treats in small dog bowls and wrap in cellophane.  Add Scooby Doo graham snacks, fruit snacks, Scooby Doo coloring book, Scooby Doo DVD or story books.

Also add a creepy element such as skull rings or fake spiders.

Velma's Glasses

Choose someone to be Velma. Then have all the other kids sit in a circle. Have Velma close her eyes while you give one child a pair of plastic glasses (Velma's glasses).  Velma now opens her eyes, the child with the glasses can keep the glasses hidden or he can pass them to other guests but be careful cause Velma is watching. Then have Velma figure out who has the glasses. Whoever gets caught with the glasses is the next Velma.
