Okay, so in case you didn't realize what a huge closet nerd I am, you're about to realize by the end of this post. My friends and I love having theme dinners & parties a couple of times a month. Like a lot of people I know I grew up reading Harry Potter books & watching the movies. We all grew up with Harry, Ron & Hermione.
So, my roommate and I decided our next get together should be harry potter themed, and somehow we found enough closet nerd friends to participate.My roommate is to credit for most of the fabulous decor! It ended up being such a fun night & I wanted to share a few pictures from the party.
We had a 9 3/4 sign outside the apartment, floating "candles" taped to the ceiling like in the great hall & a grand buffet of food everyone contributed a dish or drink to the party.
cho-chang's cheddar cheese ball
screaming mandrake cupcakes
felix felicis spinach dip
hagrid's rock toffee
honeyduke's sweet shop candy
malfoy's mini shooters
weasley family recipe taco dip
ollivander pretzel wands
We had a table we called the "Three Broomsticks" (no underage wizards allowed ;) & had a potions making contest with a couple of seasonal alcohols (pumpkin pie liqueur & apple bourbon). Everyone had to create a concoction of their own using one of the ingredients. We had some Oktoberfest beers, hard cider & of course butterbeer!
setting the mood:
harr potter movies on in the background
potions with labels out of household ingredients
light some candles for a spooky feel
break your halloween decorations out of storage
we had some witch hats & construction paper ties for everyone to get in the spirit
Now that my nerd status is no more a closet thing, feel free to check out our pinterest board for more fun ideas for a harry potter party of your own. Any other harry potter fans out there?
