Party Recap

My little guy was dreaming up ideas for this party for months beforehand! We made a birthday banner out of pages of a Harry Potter book and used the books for inspiration for all our decorations.

We had sorting hat scratcher tickets, potions, Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, played Quidditch, drank Butterbeer, and went shopping at the joke shop!

We even did a little photobooth where the kids dressed up in a school robe with their wands and glasses (if they wanted).

    I actually got them at a yard sale. They were etched from a party at a local church which is why I ended up using labels. I had a hard time finding handled ones so I snatched these up while I could. I did see some large glass beer mugs at the dollar store though (greenbacks). Sorry I couldn't help more!
