Scooby Snacks! - A must for this party!
You could bake them at home using the bone shaped cookie cutter (it is most budget friendly) or you could get the real deal (or a healthy mix of both)! There are Scooby Snacks available both for people and for dogs - the ones featured here being for people naturally! They will be a hit at this party! My suggestion is to get a few boxes of these and bake the rest as Scooby Snacks can be a bit expensive.

Edible cake topper - no worries that someone would try to eat a piece of decor by accident as it is meant to be eaten.
I just love this mystery manor cake topper. I think it looks amazing and will turn any cake into a masterpiece.
Simple yet efficient.
Other Food Ideas
I imagine you won't be eating only cakes and cupcakes
As a party needs more than just Scooby Snacks, cake and cupcakes there is other food you can do. Luckily for you this theme has endless possibilities when it comes to food. You can go with burgers (make sure to have healthy ones) as we know Scooby loves them. You can also take advantage of the monster side of the story and make monstrously cute food. Here are a few ideas;
Scooby Doo Birthday Party Decorations
Turn the room into mystery mansion!
From the colorful balloons to the monster props! There are so many cool ways you can decorate for this party. I suggest getting a few Scooby Doo balloons as they will create a fun atmosphere and to get or make cute monster props. A really fun way to go about this is to make monster photo props (or buy them). They will serve you as a decoration as well as fun activity for the kids. You will be able to take pictures of them and they will have a great reminder of this party.
Scooby Doo Balloons
Kids will love them! These you can simply make at home as long as you have a printer (or access to one).
Visit http://www.bhg.com/halloween/parties/kid-size-mons... and get one or more of their printable monster cut outs (all in kid sizes, but you can make them even bigger).
These cute monsters will be all the rave at the party as each of the kids will be able to transform into one - as you know all of the monsters in the Scooby Doo cartoons turn out to be people in the end.
Fill the room with these and you won't need anything else.
Monster Photot Prop!

Scooby Doo Party Game Ideas and Activities
Let the fun begin!
To keep the bunch of kids happy (and a bit under control) it is best to have a few games and activities prepared.
*If some of the guests are arriving early, or you have a bunch of kids who love coloring pages you can give them Scooby Doo coloring pages. You can get them for free from Scooby Doo official website (check under printables)
*Pin the tail/collar on Scooby - a variation of pin the tail on the donkey. A great party game.
*Monster Dressup - have the kids turn themselves into monsters, mummies, vampires, swamp monsters - they will need bandages, old clothes, body paints...
*Game of clues - Find Velma's Glasses - You will need to prepare for this in advance. Buy a pair (or more) of glass frames and hide them around. Write a lot of clues on post it notes each leading to another and finally to the glasses. The clues can be direct - like search under the sofa to find the next clue, they can be riddles, puzzles... Kids will love it.
Fun Party Board Games
Scavanger hunt is perfect for any birthday party
Bingo is another fun game for groups, just make sure you have some cool rewards
Don't forget to dress up!
Be sure to have the right outfit for this party!
You as a host can take on a role of anyone in the Scooby Gang be it Velma, Daphne, Fred or Shaggy you will be fine.
The birthday boy or girl can proudly wear the doggy outfit - you are guaranteed to get some super cute photos out of it
