Throw this Doctor Who wibbly wobbly timey changey party #Entertaining#Pop Culture#Doctor Who#geeky#party April 10 2013 | Guest post by Siobhan Sarrel My birthday party always falls on the same weekend as the time change, so I thought it would be fun to host a time-travel party. My guests were asked to dress as someone from their favorite era (early 21st century attire was totally fine) or as their favorite Doctor Who Character. I dressed like a Dalek. Here's how I threw an awesome Doctor Who-themed birthday party with Whovian decor, favors, and food! Doctor Who-themed treats: I made marshmallow adipose guys with royal icing to hold the marshmallows together. I served chocolate fezzes, and made bow ties out of red fruit leather. I got a cake from the bakery with a big clock on it and it said, "Wibby-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey." We served two types of fish fingers and custard. One was actual fish fingers and tartar sauce "custard." The other was short bread dipped in white chocolate and graham crackers "fish fingers" and Birds custard. Whatever didn't match the Doctor Who theme exactly was _____of Rassilon (i.e. cheese enchiladas of Rassilon). Doctor Who party favors Related Post Throw this party: Doctor Who-themed Bat Mitzvah Over on Offbeat Families, reader Reva posed this question: "My daughter is planning her Bat Mitzvah and REALLY wants it to be Doctor Who-themed… but... Read more I gave out little bags of jelly babies, banana candy ("bananas are good"). And edible ball bearings. And TARDIS self-destruct buttons (aka Jammie Dodgers), then put them in little bags with a photo of the forth doctor. Also, if you go to zazzle.com and type in "Police Box" you'll get a lot of options for sheets of stickers. My husband asked me precisely what I planned to do with all of these vending machine capsules. Uh… well, they just happen to be the same color as the fourth doctor's scarf and uh… hey, these candy-coated sunflower seeds from Trader Joe's just happen to be the same color as the scarf. YES! I planned it all along! Doctor Who-themed party decor: My husband would NOT let me paint the front door blue. Harrumph! So, I compromised and put decals on the glass door in back. It really works, too. You go through the TARDIS door and the whole outside is inside. I found a bunch of space fabric on sale at my local fabric store. It makes a great tablecloth. I got the TARDIS fabric from Spoonflower.com. I thought, "Wait! I can't sew!" Just don't look at the seams and you'll think they're fantastic. This might be a surprise, but I get a little OCD when I plan a party. So I got some polymer clay and made Cybermats Fez, scarf, gas mask, bow tie, bananas, Chuck's, comic book, Union Jack purse, oh, the celery was added later.

That is one crazy detailed party! (It would never occur to me to go to that much effort to throw MYSELF a party like that. Someone else, sure.) I would have LOVED to go to your wibbly wobbly timey wimey party! 20 agree Reply Totally agree! I bet everyone had a fantastic time. (I think I did less planning than this for my wedding!) 9 agree Reply What a fantastic party! 6 agree Reply THIS IS THE BEST PARTY EVER. And you are the most adorable dalek. 8 agree Reply You are too kind. For the light-up Dalek earring, I went to a local craft store and got those tiny blinking light bulbs that go into balloons. I put them on a set of ear wires and was good to go. 4 agree Reply LOVE this! The appropriate food is amazing, and that's a super-cute Seal of Rassilon! I hope everyone had a brilliant timey wimey. 5 agree Reply WOW! That is one intense and impressive party! I'm exhausted just looking at everything you made/planned! BTW, I've actually made real fish fingers and custard. Believe it or not it's not bad! Granted I breaded my own fish, so it was a little different than real fishsticks, and I made my own custard so it may not have been as sweet as a packaged kind, but seriously it's not as gross as it sounds! I actually quite liked it 🙂 7 agree Reply You may be the coolest person ever. That is all. 8 agree Reply yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay 2 agree Reply I…. I have no words. This would make the best party EVER. YOU ARE A FANTASTIC NERDY OVERACHIEVER. I salute you! Please start throwing Doctor Who themed weddings for a living! 🙂 13 agree Reply Dammmn. I wish I was your friend so I could've got an invite to the PARTY OF THE CENTURY. 11 agree Reply Fezzes are cool. Bowties are cool. This party? Waaay cool. Allons-y! 9 agree Reply Absolutely amazing! I would have had a whale of a time at that party, good job indeed! 2 agree Reply Just a note about the goodie table: you can't get silver dragees in California. So, the edible ball bearings are actually silver Sixlets. 1 agrees Reply Are those Gally ribbons I spy? 🙂 2 agree Reply Yes, they are. I'm an annual attendee of the Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles. 1 agrees Reply Nice! I started going a couple of years ago. Already can't wait for next year! The party looks awesome, btw. 🙂 2 agree Reply Damn, and I thought I did well with my blue table cloth and galliferyan bunting for the season 7 premier…. That's amazing work! We did have actual fish fingers and actual custard though… surprisingly not nearly as disgusting as it sounds……. also…. Tic-Tocs!! http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-pQ988fwgVvI/TexnisxPc2I/AAAAAAAABe8/VMIDInhII0c/s400/arnotts+tic+toc.jpg 2 agree Reply Can we be friends? Actually, I've been thinking about how awesome it would be to throw a 50th Anniversary party this November. These are some great ideas! 1 agrees Reply How did you make the jelloto look like the Ood Collective Mind 1 agrees Reply I'm guessing with this dessert mold shaped like a brain! 2 agree Reply wow!!!!!! this totally gives me ideas for my geek themed birthday party! thanks!:D 1 agrees Reply Wow. I was trawling the web looking for ideas for my 50th anniversary Who themed part and found all your ideas amazing. I had already thought of stripey jelly in tall glasses for the Tom Baker scarf and marshmallows for the adipose. One guest is making a tardis cake and another is making some of his amazing flapjack but not sure how he is themeing it. I plan to dye some white fabric blue and sort of tent my square porch so when you walk into my house its the Tardis. I love how detailed you were and hope my humble version looks half as good as yours. Brilliant, Fi from Yorkshire, England 6 agree Reply This is great. My daughter wants a Dr. Who birthday party? What did you use to make the Ood Collective Mind and Pocky Sonic Screwdrivers? Thanks. 2 agree Reply The Ood Collective mind is simply Jello and a brain shaped mold. You might want to add an extra pack of unflavored gelatin to firm it up a bit. The sonic screwdrivers are simply Pocky dipped in melted candy coating. I used Wilton's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocky 1 agrees Reply I'm planning a Dr Who 50th anniversary party. There are some great ideas here already. I have thought up, but not actually tried: Dalek domes: matchmaker and icing eye stalk pushed into tea cake dome, jelly tot ears. Alien fruit salad: some items in strange colours eg. blue melon balls. Others just unusual such as dragon fruit. Sontaran doughnut heads. Sonic screwdriver bread sticks: decorated with bands of sesame seeds and poppy seeds. Bow tie pasta shapes: there must be some potential there… 2 agree Reply Wow, this is amazing! I am currently planning my son's 10th birthday and this will a fantastic idea for him!! 1 agrees Reply Love it all. I needed some ideas for my sons birthday party and most who are attending are huge fans of the show. This is how I came accross this. You are so creative! <3 On a side note under the jammie dogers you wrote you put a picture of the fourth doctor but That was 11s button …. Otherwise you are very clever. 1 agrees Reply Where did you find the images for your Bananas, Tardis destruct button? My 6 year old (soon to be 7) is having a Doctor Who birthday? I am trying to find things for the treat bag but, being in Louisiana, I cannot find anything! 3 agree Reply The pencils! Where did you get them!? 1 agrees Reply OMG!!! This is awesome!!! Also, the space fabric you used as a table cloth? I made my Lego Star Wars wedding garter out of the same fabric! Reply Why not just use real fish fingers with real custard? I've tried it, it's actually really good. That sounds like an amazing party! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
