How to Throw A Doctor Who Party

Saturday is the day when all our hopes and/or fears will collide with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.  What is going to happen?  I don’t know.  I refuse to watch the trailer.  Spoilers.

Invitations

Hand out TARDIS blue envelopes like in “The Impossible Astronaut.”  Random Creativity has a great tutorial.

Decorations

Turn your door into a TARDIS.  Every time you enter the room exclaim, “It’s bigger on the inside!”

Maybe you want something a little more subtle.  This crack in the universe wall decal is pretty awesome.  You can even go the homemade route and make your own Lady Cassandra or write Bad Wolf allover your place.

Food

Obviously, you will be serving fish fingers and custard.  You might want to check out this recipe.

Tea is, also, a must.  These Tiny TARDIS Pies sound delicious, and who could resist Mini Chocolate Dalek CakesAdipose Marshmallows and Sonic Screwdriver Pretzel Sticks will add a nice touch to the table.  For drinks, serve Sonic Screwdrivers and Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey TARDIS Punch.  Also, always bring a banana to a party.

Party Favors

Before the show starts, have everyone make their own fez.  Don’t forget a bow tie because bow ties are cool.

On a side note, my blog has been acting wonky lately.  Comments/videos/slideshows have a tendency to disappear and then reappear later.  Might be a browser issue.  Might be my blog.  Might be that they just want a vacation.  Anyway, let me know if you are having problems viewing anything.  I will continue to bang my head against a brick wall work on this problem.

Books I’m Reading

For me, it has been a summer of books.  Good books.  Bad books.  Meh books.  Lately, I’ve been swept up in fantastical stories involving werewolves, vampires, and other such creatures.  Not a bad way to finish off summer.

Court Yard Hounds

Emily Robison and her sister, Martie Maguire, both formerly of Dixie Chick fame, are out with their second album from their band, Court Yard Hounds. “I love this band…the way we explore new aspects of ourselves and what we can expect from each other, both musically and as people,” says Martie. “We are close. Plus, being […]
