Tuesday 5: Doctor Who Party Edition

The Tuesday 5 started off as The Tuesday Random 5. Sometimes I like to give them a theme, though. This one is for Doctor Who lovers. If you don't watch The Doctor, you'll find this one pretty weird and unintelligible.

Saturday night we had a few friends around to watch the premier of the 12th Doctor. It was a little late, but well worth the wait. We decided to make a theme party of it. I love theme parties. Back before we had Little Explorers, The International Man of Intrigue and I used to throw elaborate Halloween theme parties. It's been a while since we had a theme party, but I think this random Saturday night party turned out awesomely nerdy!

1. Every party needs some great decor:

 Our Front Door: It's bigger on the inside.




 On the wall in the bathroom: Don't Blink!


 Some fun blue party supplies


 Driveway art


 Leading up to the house-Don't Blink


 Bad Wolf!



 Had to include the welcome mat: Hello Sweetie!

 Laura Ingalls Wilder was convinced I hung these just for her

2. What's a party without games?



 Tumbling Tardis Game



3. Costumes! I had a Tardis blue skirt with a patch pocket with the Police Box sign printed on it. "The Brits" came in Doctor Who themed t-shirts. Our other neighbors came as Amy Pond and Nine. And, The International Man of Intrigue came as Eleven:



4. Swag Bags! What's better than sending home guests with some goodies?


Dalek and Tardis candies. This silicone mold was a little bit too big to make decent candies, but it was still fun!




And mugs! I painted these, so they're not perfect, but they'll definitely cheer up a morning cup of coffee!

5. FINALLY, the most important part, FOOD!!! We had to stick to the theme!


Tardis blue corn chips and Dalek-table Dalek Garlek dip by yours truly.



A traditional (and insanely delicious) meat pie made by Amy Pond.


Strax and Dalek cookies made by Amy Pond. The Strax cookies were real maple and the Dalek cookies were espresso.



I also made Bow Ties Are Cool pasta salad.



And Cucumber Cassandwiches with Moisturize Me Olive Oil spray.



 The Brits contributed Jammy Dodgers, Jelly Babies, and marshmallow Adipose Babies,



as well as fish fingers and custard. Don't worry, the fish fingers were actually amazing cookies!

We didn't have any pictures of the blue Sonic Screwdriver cocktails made by Nine or the Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Jello shots I made, but they were yummy!

So, that, my friends, was our little Doctor Who gathering to watch the first episode starring Doctor Twelve. We really enjoyed him. Anyone else watching? What did you think?
