Party Recap

As we have Boy/Girl twins they normally always argue about what style of party we are going to have for them.
However this year they told me right from the start that it was to be a Harry Potter Party.

I made each child a home made Wizards robe with the different house badges on. Everyone wore them on the day accept for my fashion conscious daughter who wore a hermione dress (purchased from ebay).
I even got my mother in law to knit my baby twins and my husband Griffindor Quidditch jumpers and scarves, they looked super cute).

The party was held in my front yard.
I had handmade a Platform 9 3/4 sign that hung above the entry way. We had a fake wall which was a made out of a vinyl brick patterned backdrop, the children loved running through this to enter the party.

We had different activities to entertain the children through out the day. We had Potion class, Herbology, Quidditch practice and Harrys Dress up box.

In quidditch the children threw a golden snitch through home made quidditch rings.

Potion class was really fun. Each child was given their own beaker in which they made magical potions. They had an edible potion first and then they had an exploding potion which made them squeal with delight.

In herbology the children planted Screaming Mandrake Seedlings (daffodil bulbs) in their own little plant pots. They got to take them home at the end of the day.

Harrys Dressing up box was full of various different potter clothing, all the children took turns to get dressed up and have their photo taken to take home with them.

The children all visited Hagrids Hotdog hut for their savoury food and then they all got to enter the Griffindor common room (my living room) for the dessert table and treats.

The Dessert table was done in the colours of Griffindor ,Gold and Maroon.

The sweet treats where all named after Harry Potter characters and houses.
we had.
Lunas Lemon Drops
Professors Pumpkins
Ravenclaw Raisin treats
Golden snitches (orange coconut mallow balls)
Gringots gold
Snakes Skulls
Hermiones Honeycomb
Hufflepuffs honey Pops
Wizard Wands

For the twins birthday cakes they wanted the cake that Hagrid made for Harry in the first Potter movie. I did two of these cakes one for each twin.

The whole day was a big success, all the children had an amazing time and the twins were delighted with their party.

For favours to take home, I made custom printables.
They were Rons Rainbow cookies, Bertie botts every flavour beans, chocolate frogs and glass vials filled with poisonous dust (sherbet).

The children loved their favour bags and all the kids in school are still talking about the twins Harry Potter party. It was definitely worth all of the hard work."
