Friday was hubby’s birthday and as you saw, we did Borderlands 2 for his work celebration, so I am sure you are all wondering what I did for home, or who?!
That is right, Who.
Home was all Dr Who themed, starring Doctors 9-11, since that is where we started.
Here is the decor starting with the front door
Of course a Tardis door, I even included a beacon in the window to mimic the light atop the Tardis, I was going to cover the remainder of the door with blue crepe paper but it was threatening rain, so I just taped it up. Didn’t want to clean soggy crepe paper off everything, lol!
Instead of Police public call Box, I did Happy 29th year Birthday
The police box notice also reads birthday themed
Inside, I “graffiti-ed” Bad Wolf on our chalk board
Also marked some Silence encounters
I strung Tardis and star string lights down the stairs and the Impossible Astronaut is floating right at the beginning of the steps
Up close Tardis and star light
I also made Garland with tons of Doctor Who quotes and pictures
I also took the mask pictures from the bbc website and made them smaller to make an alien garland for other wall
When you first get up the stairs you see the Happy Birthday sign with the seal of Rassilon, some star twirlers and balloons
Led and Mylar Star balloons
Solar System hanging from ceiling fan
I made a Tardis vase and filled it with Sunflowers (one of my van gogh references)
Also made this cool steampunk happy birthday sign for the flowers
Exploding Tardis on the table
Awesome space tablecloth with cool earth like plates that I found at Target
Begging Pterodactyl and sign that states do not feed
I also took my foam head from halloween (he was the organ player for my haunted mansion) and gave him a new more doctor like get up. I made him a fez, 3d glasses and a bowtie, cause bowties are cool!
There are also some Tardis self destruct buttons (alright, they are jammie dodgers), some banana runts (since 9th liked bananas and since it was a party, we followed the 10th’s instructions to always bring one.) The 10th’s sonic screwdriver made out of polymer clay.
Would you like a jelly baby? We hear they were Tom Baker’s faves and the ganger 11th, seemed to like them too.
I also made a journal of impossible things and the doctors fob watch
Next to the table I made Amy Pond’s apple and another apple which hate things, like I hate apple, apple are rubbish on it.
Glow jar with stars
River song’s journal and some chapstick I used a sticker and some glitter to make into hallucinogenic lipstick. I wrote all of my husband and I’s adventures in the journal, to track our time together, like River did with the doctor
I made bowties are cool garland and decorated the tv
Even Riddick got in on the fun, looking dashing in the bowtie I made him
Hello Sweetie garland with pictures of River song in it (yes, I printed my S wrong, so it is backwards, was boring white on other side.)
I also found this awesome Gallifreyan Translator and used it to create this “Happy 29th Birthday, sweetie” banner
Then there is the table of Tardis, I made a cansiter with working light, the vase, a gift bag and this awesome paper craftTardis Key I made atop Tardis Canister
Fridge also had some posters and things I have learned from Doctor Who My weeping Angel, which I made from a Monster High Doll (tutorial will be posted soon) placed on a mirror and in front of one, so she won’t attack
The 10th first hand, which was cut off during his regeneration by the Sycorox
Constellation jar I made
On to the food
Adipose baby marshmallows
Apples are rubbish nachos, I found a melting pot copy cat recipe for their cheddar fondue and served it with a granny smith apple
Bowties are cool pasta salad
Sontaran spuds (twice baked potatoes cut in half and then I placed almond slivers for noses and peppercorns for eyes), keep calm and eat fish sticks and custard (lemon custard or tartar sauce, we tried the custard and stayed with the tartar sauce) and Silurian spears (asparagus spears wrapped in bacon)
Dalek cupcakes with edible ball bearings (irish creamcupcakes with irish cream filling, nonalcoholic)
and last but not least, Tardis cake with functional light
The guest of honor got home and looks around, then we ate and got ready to unwrap presents
Now we are ready for presents
Birthday card, I did exploding Tardis on a handmade scratch board and sealed it, so wouldn’t scratch anymore
Inside the paper craft was a polymer clay cyberman I made
Then the big canister had to blind pack vinyl doctor who toys, we got the 11th Tardis and Doctor, pretty perfect
Yay! new toys (there we also some cool doctor who post it notes inside)
Next the gift bag had plushies I made, an Ood
and an Adipose
There is also a cool shirt, but you will see it in the next post
Kris checking out his Riversong Journal And getting some love from Doctor Dog
So that is it, The Doctor Who birthday is done.
Was a big hit, tomorrow, I will share with you birthday events of Saturday. Stay tuned!
