Harry Potter Halloween (21 photos)
My daughter and I are fascinated by the magical world created by J.K. Rowling in the Harry Potter Series. She had just finished reading the series so we knew it would be the perfect theme for a Halloween Birthday Party.
The color scheme was inspired by our natural wooded setting, and included parchment, burlap, and pops of apple green. The paper decor was co-ordintated to look old and distressed, and featured the classic harlequin pattern from the Harry Potter book covers.
J.K. Rowling has so many creative ideas to pull from, the inspiration was endless. I decided to narrow down my ideas by creating a “class schedule” and designating one activity to each class. The kids loved referring to the schedule and it helped keep the party flowing smoothly. The classes included a wanding choosing cermony, creating magical familiars, potions classes, quiddich practice, transfiguration class and a fun horcrux hunt
In addition to our "class" activities the kids enjoyed the Honey Dukes inspired treat bar and sampling butter beer and pumkin juice (aka root beer floats and orange creamsicle floats)
Kids took home their handmade wands and cloaks as special keepsake favors
