Doctor Who Starry Night PlanetBoxes

One of my favourite episodes of Doctor Who is Series 5's Vincent and the Doctor, in which the Eleventh Doctor & Amy spend time with Vincent Van Gogh. I'll not give any spoilers about the episode in case you haven't seen it yet, I'll just tell you that every time I watch it I get a serious case of the feels. Bella loves it too, so she loved this Van Gogh-inspired PlanetBox:

Bella's PlanetBox Rover contains:
  • Cucumber & cantaloupe stars
  • Chocolate sprinkle-topped oatmeal muffin sunflower 
  • Green grapes on the vine
  • Cheddar tortilla swirls on swirly picks
  • Babybel cheese carved with a really lame DW logo ;)
  • Spiced sunflower seeds
  • Starry Night cloth napkin from Beneficial-Bento
  • Happy little fork - for the stars
  • & a Lunchbox Love note

Before closing the lid, I folded the Van Gogh print napkin under the Little Dipper, turned the Babybel over, placed the Lunchbox Love note over the sunflower muffin, & challenged Bella to guess the theme of her lunch. 

Not only did she guess correctly, she also recognized my terrible logo carving :) Pickle, on the other hand, did not get his. I didn't really expect him to - he doesn't truly watch the show, he just watches it here & there when someone else is, because it's on. He did ask me for a Doctor Who lunch not long ago though so I didn't want to make Bella one and leave him out - and once I explained it to him he got it, and seemed to like it :

Pickle's PlanetBox Shuttle contains:
  • Mozzarella cheese stick bites with a bow tie pick
  • Yogurt with star sprinkles & blue sugar swirls
  • Peanut butter sandwich sunflowers with chocolate sprinkles
  • A Van Gogh's  Starry Night cloth napkin from Beneficial-Bento
  • A happy little spoon for the yogurt
  • & a Lunchbox Love note 

The sproutlets & I all loved the Eleventh Doctor, but that doesn't mean we aren't looking forward to getting to know the Twelfth! And we don't have to wait much longer, Series 8 begins tomorrow :)  A new season of Doctor Who is an excellent reason for the bento bloggers of Edible Geekery to do a blog hop, so we are!

    1. Hi Heather, and thank you! The muffin cups are by Wilton and come in a set of pink and yellow. I purchased mine on Amazon: Wilton Flower Silicone Baking Cups
