Halloween or Birthday Harry Potter Ideas
One of the girls in our office is crazy for all things Harry - Potter, that is! With the newest movie coming out as well, we decided to have a themed birthday party for her.
These party ideas would work great for Halloween parties as well.
First we found the photo above by Cooking Classy and we were inspired by her great design ideas. Jaclyn decorated her room with floating candles so much like the great hall ceiling at Hogwarts. I found the clear glass ornaments and purchased some great drippy candles which are battery operated. Other fun ideas I found were the Fat lady on the door asking for the password, or a brick curtain at the platform are also fun ideas. We printed the Hogwarts School logo for our door.
We used included these Hogwarts House rings used on the edges of our punch bowl, which was filled with Butter Beer. We did ours simply - just cream soda and vanilla ice cream. It was great! We used the rings as napkin rings, too. Another drink idea we considered was to color sodas to resemble Polypotion juice and add pop rocks to them.
Wands: Dip Twizzlers or large pretzel sticks into melted chocolate
Flying Brooms: pretzel sticks with string cheese tied with strands of chive
Golden Snitch Ferrero Rocher candies with paper wings.
Golden snitch cake pops! This site has some INCREDIBLE ideas for kid’s parties - games, drinks, clothing and more.
Treacle Tarts You can use maple syrup or molasses instead of golden syrup. Some people use almonds instead of bread crumbs. The tart recipe site also has costumes, decorations and games.
Cauldron cakes - brownies done in muffin tins. Site has other fun ideas, too.
Hagrid’s chocolate cake with pink frosting - (Make sure you spell it Happee Birthdae). HP Pins on Amazon
Food Labels done in HP colors
Potion Labels We put them next to Salsa, Queso Dip, Deviled Eggs. They'd also be great on bottles, which is what they were intended for. We just used them as food cards. You can turn any average muggle food into something magical just with a label. Have fun and be creative!
