It just so happens that my hubby turns 30 this Thursday. He had demanded a while back that I had better do something special for his 30th. So I took that, the Harry Potter idea, and did my best.
Since the start of the year I've been scrolling and searching Pinterest for ideas. It's truly overwhelming. Add in a 4 year old who can't keep a secret, and you can see how sneaky I had to be with all of this.
I want to thank everyone who had a part in making this happen - I couldn't have done it on my own!
So here it is - some photos of the Harry Potter party.
Here's Daven, trying some of the homemade pumpkin juice I made. I also made butterbeer, but neglected to snap a picture of it.
I worked for hours on these butterbeer cupcakes. They were a pain, but worth it in the end. SO good!
The sorting hat and house badges. These were right inside the front door. Guests placed the hat on their head and picked a badge to determine which house of Hogwarts they belonged to. Daven got "Pufflepuff".
A toast to each house - mixers for students and "mommy drinks" for prefects and professors.
Daven casting spells on Uncle Todd. I made his robe by simply cutting an old black shirt down the middle and liquid fabric stitching the edges.
"It's a party for your birthday, daddy!"
We had a wonderful time!
