This time last month I was busy getting ready for Puddle Duck’s Doctor Who birthday party. So here’s ten things to serve at a Doctor Who Party……
- Sonic Screwdriver – vodka and orange juice for an adult’s party or orange and lemonade for kids
- Vitex – the drink sold by Pete Tyler; unsuccessfully on this dimension but successfully on the parallel Earth. I cut paper labels to cover bottles of flavoured water and decorated one for Puddle Duck and The Niece to copy for the rest.
- Tea – served in a flask. Jacqui Tyler’s tea saved the Earth from the Sycorax in The Christmas Invasion. Well, The Doctor beat the Sycorax leader in a duel, but only after he was revived by the tannin fumes as Jacqui’s flask of tea spilled onto the circuits of the dying TARDIS.
- Fish Fingers and Custard – as served by Amelia Pond to the 11th Doctor after he crash landed in her garden. Ours was hollandaise sauce actually, but it looks like custard and is totes delish with fish fingers.
- Chips – Rose Tyler was very partial to a bag of chips. Don’t forget the vinegar in case one of your guests is a Slitheen in disguise. (Watch out for anyone who is windier than usual and shies away from the vinegar!!)
- Rackweed – since we’ve mentioned the Slitheen, we might as well include the wonder food from Raxacoricofallapatorius. It could solve world hunger, but then again there would be a distinct lack of variety in the diet as ‘invasive’ is a major understatement. A bowl of any green leaves makes an acceptable substitute.
- Pizza Planets – mini round pizzas – easy peasy, but make sure the Daleks don’t steal them to create a reality bomb.
- Jammy Dodgers – creatively used to con the Daleks into thinking the Doctor was armed and dangerous in The Victory of the Daleks. Alternatively used to keep small children quiet.
- Chocolate Daleks – Made from walnut whips, marshmallows and raisins on cocktail sticks. These were first made by Valerie Singleton on Blue Peter back in 1966. You can get all nostalgic here, and then have a go yourself. I made one and then Puddle Duck and The Niece made the rest.
- TARDIS Cake – What else????? I think this is the one from the aforementioned crash in Amy’s garden.
I wish I had seen this before the party – I’m sure Puddle Duck will want to make some of these. Apologies for the quality of some of the photos – I had mislaid the charger for my DSLR and my P&S has developed an intermittent fault.
Apologies too, to anyone who is unfamiliar with Doctor Who – this post probably means absolutely nothing to you. However, I do know that there are a number of scrapbooking geeks out there. I have been following Melissa Stinson‘s (a.k.a. the Scrappyjedi) blog for a while and I think the page I made owes more than a little to her scrapping style.
The title is an expression used by Donna Noble (my favourite Doctor Who Companion) to address The Doctor. Although I don’t ever recall her asking what was for tea!
My star brads weren’t the right colour for this LO so I tried heat embossing with white embossing powder. Unfortunately I didn’t realise that white puff doesn’t go glossy – it stays grainy. Still, at least now I know how to get a good snow effect in future!!!
I was also highly honoured. Puddle Duck allowed me use the Dalek puffy stickers from her latest Doctor Who magazine. Which reminds me – this month’s challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous is to use stickers on your LO. I hope you’ll be able to join in.
And finally, I’ll be putting this on the 2peas website for Shimelle’s macro photo challenge. I also caved in and signed up for her Hitchhikers Guide to Scrapbooking course. And while I was there I placed a not insubstantial order in the online shop – can’t wait for it to arrive!
This post was brought to you in association with Shimelle’s 10 on the 10th. You can view more lists of ten here.
