Harry Potter

I happen to know several Harry Potter fanatics. Specifically, Nate (my Very Cute Fiance) and his family. I've read and really enjoyed all the books, but if you're really a fan, you would know that in exactly one month, the final Harry Potter movie will be in theaters. This has been a huge topic of conversation among Nate and his family (Harry Potter is a very frequented topic of conversation at their dinner table). So, in light of the new movie coming out - I've brainstormed a Harry Potter party. This could easily be a birthday party or a party gearing you and your friends up for the new movie. Either way, grab your wand and robes, you've got a party to attend!

Decorations are key : make some house banners and hang white candles from the ceiling using fishing line. 

Madam Rosmerta would agree that no wizard party is complete without a pint of freshly-brewed Butterbeer.
Definitely whip up a homemade batch - Butter Beer Recipe

Don't look like a Muggle, snacking on Milk Duds and Raisinets. Line your cloak with a proper wizard's feast of sugar munchies. Start with every student's favorite, Cockroach Clusters.
(complete with free tag printable!)

Potions is one of the most popular classes at Hogwarts, so make sure you have an ample supply of Bloodworms (spaghetti with marinara), Gillyweed (backyard weeds in green-tinted water) and Hippogriff Gizzards (canned oysters). 
Don't those look so gross??
Ingredients and free labels for download


Wouldn't this list of spells be great as a game of bingo or a Word Search

Definitely include Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans. Just buy a mix of Jelly Belly's from the grocery store or buy the official box from Jelly Belly  : which includes flavors like booger, earthworm, and sausage. 

Here are some more ideas for your Harry Potter party:

  1. Welcome the guests with a sign at the front door that reads "Platform 9 3/4"
  2. Have a Harry Potter Trivia Contest and ask questions based on the book - or a 'Who Said What?' game based on Harry Potter quotes.
So what do you think? Are you dying to attend a Harry Potter party? 

(And, I would be lying if I told you Nate and I haven't already purchased tickets for the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows : part two)
