T.A.R.D.I.S. Tea Party

Hello from Team Oolong, I know it's been quiet for a bit, but the TARDIS and I have been very busy being creative for our tea party.   We were diligently making the invitations, a banner, planning the menu and Bow Tie's, cause, Bow Ties are COOL.  The TARDIS and I spent many an evening in the craft room plotting, planning and creating a Tea Party worthy of “The Doctor” all 12 of them.  
As my invited guests are major “Whovians”.   Some of you may not be familiar with Doctor Who, it is a “BBC” television series that has been around since 1963.  I was introduced to the 4th Doctor many years ago (1976) when I was only then dating my darling husband.  A person who follows the Doctor Who series is called “Whovians” so I guess that is what you would call our family.  Because you could find us all together when our girls were living at home, in front of the Television on a Saturday night, oh and you can’t forget the Christmas evening specials, LOL  
     



So with the help of the TARDIS and my very knowledgeable hubby we were off and running or shall I say  creating.    This was our invitation.

This was our Weeping Angel Banner, it says “Don’t Blink”

WHAT THE DOCTOR WILL TELL YOU REGARDING THE WEEPING ANGELS.

Well it was a very enjoyable afternoon.  Although one of my guests was not able to attend the party, as she is recovering from a mini Stroke she  had earlier this week, even though she thought she would be able attend, fatigue got the best of her.  As I would have loved having her enjoy the festivities,  The TARDIS and I  much rather her stay home and  rest to regain her strength.  Respectfully requesting prayers for Janice and a speedy recovery.









Well we haven't made any plans for this week, but you never know where you may find us although we are going camping for Thanksgiving.  so stay tuned to Team Oolong...

  1. Creative, indeed, Rosemary!
    While not a whovian myself, I have been watching some of the past shows and reading about it and asking friends about the different Doctors and The Tardis to learn more.
    Your menu was a fun adaption of everything including the 5th doctors lapel flower.
    It was fun to enjoy your special TARDIS tea party with you through your post.

  5. Looks like such a fun tea party. So much effort went into it. My sister is a big Dr. Who fan. She loved Tom Baker as Dr. Who. Prayers for your friend.

    1. Thank you for the prayers and Tom Baker was a tough Doctor to follow, but Peter Davidson did pretty good, I must say Collin Baker really was not one of my favs..

  6. I have to confess, I am not a Whovian. I have done a bit of research and tried to watch an episode in preparation for the Tardis' visit next month. I will do my best to make him feel welcome, but I won't be able to come close to you. It is so nice of you to make him feel so welcome. I was SOOOOO happy to see your Dr. Who tea party. I thought about "trying" to do one, but since I don't watch the show, I am sure it would have been a feeble attempt. It looks like the Tardis was very happy to help with your amazing party - WOW! Love the menu and your creativity. I will keep Janice in my prayers.
    Sips and Smiles,
    Teresa
