Fulton's Birthday Party (2 of 2)

Part 2 of 2...
In case you missed part 1---it's here
The birthday boy requested a small group of friends for his birthday this year. He wanted it to be a Scooby-Doo Mystery Party! I was all over it! The possibilities are endless!!! It's a perfect backyard party theme. There is something so quaint about a backyard party - ya know?

The hour-and-a-half party was filled with games and clues to slove a mystery.

I'll set the stage for you...
The kids were busy playing "Scooby-Scooby! Where's your bone" and the Freaky Phantom Villain (a.k.a. Boppa, Fulton's Grandad) crept into the backyard and swiped all the birthday presents. When the game was over, we discovered that all the gifts were missing. The phantom had left a trail of clues!!!

Any who...here are the deets!

The Invitation---designed by moi!

The next clue was found inside a balloon


Game #3 Mummy Wrap Relay

Each team raced to wrap all their mummies the fastest!
Clue #3 was under the winner's chair

Game #4 Freaky Phantom Spray


The kids attacked a very good-sport Villain with the Phantom Spray!
They best part of the day!!!


When the phantom was down he handed over the next clue.


The kids raced to the table for Scooby-snacks and to sing Happy Birthday to Fulton!




Make a wish, sweet boy!!! I hope they always come true!!!
The next clue was hidden under the cupcake stand.


The final clue...


To the MYSTERY MACHINE!!!

Is the Villain inside with the presents???


He is!!!

"I would have gotten away it, if it hadn't been for you meddling kids!!!"

Thx Lesley!!! I try! It's kind of tough with boys b/c they don't want all the frilly frou-frou stuff!
