My girls both asked for a Harry Potter themed birthday for their 11th birthday, which is the age Harry was when the series started. I was excited for this as we already had a lot of Harry Potter decor.
I started the planning process gathering all the items together and coming up with food items. I have read the books but googled some names of food items.
We had a variety of sweet treats for the Honeydukes table to include:
We put the treats in cauldrons we had from Halloween as well as using some of our Halloween decor.
Printed posters on card stock as well as letter from a professor for added decor.
We did some party crafts including potion bottles and make your own wand. We put down aluminium foil to protect the table. We spray painted paper towel and toilet paper rolls gold with dripped hot glue to make floating candles.
The last fun item we did was make letters for each guest with stamps and wax seal. We hung them from the ceiling as though they were flying out of the fireplace.
The kids had a blast and they were able to take home their crafts and candy as party favors!
