Party Recap

This was such a fun party to plan! It helps that im a harry potter nerd! LOL! I was so excited to plan this party! I think more than the birthday girl! LOL! The kids were sent letters and Hogawarts Train tickets from Proffessor Mcgonagal as their invites. We traveled to Hogwarts using the hogwarts train ticket. we then were sorted into our houses, followed by a quick potion on how to make butterbeer. It was YUMMY! folling that the houseelves made a mexican theme feast for us.

    Thanks! We made them. U get shaker pegs and dowels rods. Take sandpaper( we had a small sander! Much easier) and round out the ends. Glue together with wood glue or gorilla glue. Then we stained them. Easy peasy!
