The Doctor Who Party

The Tree House - It was a huge hit and got a full on party workout, at one time we counted 7 kids up the top.  There were a few kids that were scared to get up and a few that once they got up couldn't get down, but the only accident we had was Jack falling off the bottom stair and the only thing hurt was his little boy ego

The Cake - Notice the look on Jacks face, he had been burnt by a sparkler a few days previously and I realised after looking at these photos that putting them on his birthday cake could scar him for life.
The Table - Really this photo is for Treena, we had brought a book of Doctor Who cardboard models and I had the intention of making all 4 (the tardis above, a Dalek, K-9, and a Cyberman mask) unfortunately the Tardis alone took me the better part of 2 hours and so the others didn't get done in time.  I still have every intention of making them and putting them in Jacks room though.
The Cake - I had planned just to make a round orange cake and put Doctor Who figurines on top.  But I had underestimated how hard it was going to be to find them and so had to come to another solution the day before the party.  Dark indigo icing eluded me, as did anything else that would make it look realistic, in the end i settled for a cartoon version of the Tardis.  The upside was Jack saw it and said 'mummy that's the Tardis so the birthday boy gave it his seal of approval

The Lolly Bags - Or favour bags as Catriona called them in a comment that got deleted, there were 12 bags that had either K-9, an Ood, a Cyberman, the Tardis, a Dalek, and of course the latest Doctor on them.  They were filled with popcorn, a few lollys, a party blower, a balloon, and a little rubber frog/snake.  I would have loved to have put something more Doctor whoish inside but i really did leave all party planning till the last minute.

Look at that! It looks fantastic! I love the favour bags. But where's Hamish? Naked again? And I don't see Jack waving his sonic screwdriver around.
