You could easily make your own entrance from an old sheet, some red paint and then draw on the bricks, however this backdrop was just blue tacked to our wall. We placed a split up the middle for people to sneak through.
Immy even grabbed her toy shopping trolley, an owl toy and ran through just like Harry.
Inside the party area we had Honey Duke's Store where the table was filled with all sorts of edible options.
Bertie Botts Beans were a big feature.
Other foodie items we had to feast on included Potter Pies, Blood Clot Sandwiches, Ghostly Cheeses and Cauldron Cupcakes.
We got crafty with some paper and crayons and had candles floating above the table.
We have a large mirror on the wall, so it was easy to grab a lipstick and write this on it. Afterwards it removes with plain old window cleaner.
A Quidditch cake of course.
To make this one I used sparklers. Burn the sparklers the day before and spray paint them gold and that is the hardest part of this cake.
I didn't make up lolly bags, instead, the trolley from the train to Hogwarts was wheeled out. The trolley is of course filled with lollies galore and we had a lolly box for everyone to fill with their favourite sweets.
Chocolate frogs were added to each box too.
Removing a few things from a shelf and placing our Potter books around was a final decoration for the day.
The rest was the kids just playing, hanging out, having fun and being kids.
If you are having a Harry Potter Party, it's going to be heaps of fun. Enjoy!
