Vintage Sci-Fi – “Tea at the End of the Universe”
“Arthur blinked at the screens and felt he was missing something important. Suddenly he realized what it was. “Is there any tea on this spaceship?” he asked.
― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
This year the Sunday Fantasy Tea transports us into the world of Vintage Science Fiction. Plum the depths of your memory and imagination for costume ideas in the spirit of the theme or come as a movie buff, your favorite science fiction writer or an observer of the scientific wonders of any historical era.
The 1960’s gave birth to the science fiction of Dr. Who, Star Trek, Lost in Space, The Jetsons, Barbarella and My Favorite Martian, to mention a few. They showed us a future of vivid colors, shiny plastics and imaginative science. And let’s not forget the 1860s of Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth, From the Earth to the Moon and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, which took his readers on fantastic adventures.
Grab your flying car, space suit or Steampunk bustle dress and join us for afternoon tea at the End of the Universe where we contemplate vintage science fiction and what those who lived in the 60’s imagined 2017 would look like.
A delicious tea is planned for you, as well as photo op vignettes, raffle prizes, and a few entertaining surprises. Your Tea Mistresses look forward to seeing you at the Sunday Fantasy Tea!
