Harry Potter Party
We started our magical party this year with cute Hogwarts letters for invitations, and since some kids really thought they were going to Hogwarts, we had to work on a grand entrance. From brown packing paper, paint and patience. And a bit of wizard skills.
An essential tool for every wizard: a skewer stick, covered in hot glue and paint. And instructions for use, of course.
Since we got a whole pack of brown paper, why not use it for some beautiful flags. To go with all those Christmas candles we got.
And don't forget the Pinterest printables.
To's first experience with dry ice...
...pensive punch and other thematic food and drinks... plus recycled ideas from our owl party.
A quidditch game with water balloons and chocolate snitches...
... paper bag brooms...
... and a sorting hat piñata.
The sorting ceremony itself involved cupcakes with house colours inside (not pictured frosted, as they got eaten before I could think to take a photo) and uniform ties for all kids.
The cake was easy to make, yet quite cute.
Instead of a party favour, I dressed Jelly Bellys as Every Favour Beans with stickers and a printer. While we did get original Every Favour Beans for the party, the kids didn't enjoy snot and sausage surprises, so we thought it was better to go with a fruit mix instead.
Want to have your own HP party? I hope we gave you some ideas. Have fun!
