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.

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.

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

  1. 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!
