Scooby Doo Party

04 May 2012

Finnegan’s fifth birthday ended up being a total blast.  He had a smile on his face from start to finish

Each place setting had a little sectioned plate that had a few Scooby Snack graham crackers, Scooby gummy treats, a Scooby tag with their initials and a mini cup of fruit loops, so they could make their own {edible} Scooby collar.  I will have a tutorial for you next week on how to make the collar tags!  They also had a Scooby party blower, a Scooby tattoo, Color Magic markers and Color Magic Scooby coloring pages. The green and orange bags held the party favor, a bottle of Scooby Doo bubble bath.

The Food: Finn wanted the food to be creepy. Part of what he loves is the ‘scary’ factor to the stories. We pulled out the Halloween decorations and added some of the Scooby villains to the food names. I just wanted a giant sub because Scooby and Shaggy are always eating comically large sandwiches. Here is the menu we settled on:

  • The Spector Sub Sandwich, three feet long!
  • San Franpsycho Fruit
  • The Creeper Coleslaw
  • Penguin Pasta Salad
  • Charlie the Robot Chips
  • Black Knight Iced Tea
  • Lord Infernicus Lemonade

The Desserts:

  • Goblin King Cookies which were awesome cookies in the shape of the Mystery Machine, Scooby, Scooby tags with Finn’s initials, number fives, and dog bones
  • Ghost of Captain Cutler Cupcakes were mini cupcakes, the chocolate had Scooby Snacks on top, we also had strawberry with cream cheese icing
  • Old Iron Face Oreos were sea salt chocolate covered Oreos and had green tinted white chocolate ‘slime’ drizzled on
  • Ghost Clown gummies
  • Cheese Monster cheesecake dip served with Scooby Snacks graham crackers served in bright orange dog bowls
  • and of course, BIRTHDAY CAKE!

Holy cow!!! What a lucky little boy!!!!!! Looks like he had a blast. You are such an amazing party planner. I can't wait to see what Miss Tate has for her first birthday. I can't wait until the boys birthday (in October, and yes I already started planning) to be in our house and not have to worry about mother nature. She was a real wench with the candyland party. I had so much more to do but the weather was so uncooperative.

I love that you think of EVERYTHING! The "faces" of characters was a cute touch. Your snacks always have a cute touch, especially when you name them all after the theme. So creative!!! Such an awesome mommy!!

Wow, Michelle, this is AMAZING! I can't imagine how much time this took but I can tell it was worth it!

Krista said...

So Cute! But that is to be expected you always throw the best parties!!!

Michelle: Just stop. Stop with all of the awesome, creative, super-fun Mom stuff right now. You're making me feel bad about the Wal-mart birthday cake and pin-the-tail-on-Batman crap that I've been thinking of for my son's party. I was okay until I saw the Daphne-hair/Shaggy stubble cuteness, but that was just taking it too far! Seriously--super cute and creative! I can definitely see why your little one was grinning from ear to ear. Thanks for raising the damn bar. Tricia
