We are so excited for the new Harry Potter movie, Fantastic Beasts to finally be out. We are going to see it tonight and I figured it was finally time to share the details of Avinash's Harry Potter Birthday Party (from last year, oops!).
I crafted my heart out for this party. It was a true labor of love. And, I never could have done any of it without, you guessed it...
Seriously, it saved my life so many times while planning this party. Like, for this super amazing carnival candy table cover.
Here are my other projects I made and games we played.
Hogwarts Invitation Scrolls // These were such a huge hit. I made admission letters from Hogwarts for each child and a train ticket. I also used red fimo clay to make the wax seals for the envelopes. The paper was scorched a little too before going out.

I created a Hogwarts letterhead and scripted envelope, which you can download here. I printed these on cream cardstock and folded them over and glued the fimo wax seals on.
Free potion printable one and free potion printable two.
brick backdrop and cut it at a diagonal and taped it back together so it overlapped, then I cut another opening where the overlap was so it seemed to be one solid piece. The kids had such a blast running back and forth through this thing.
I designed a 9 3/4 Hogwarts Express to hang over the wall which you can download here (for free!).
chocolate frog mold off of Amazon and made these ourselves. Unless you are able to stock up at Universal Studios, these are really expensive on the secondary market but everyone wants to try one!
broom and took several jumping shots. They love looking back at these pictures of themselves really flying!
big pack of electric tea lights. The great thing about these is that they stay lit for a long long time, so you can even set them up the night before. I just taped a rolled up piece of copier paper around them and strung them up on white string again. The effect was really magical.
Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean // I bought a bulk case of these candies on Amazon. This was such a fun party activity watching the looks on everyone's faces while they tried earthworm and earwax and vomit! Ha!
Butterbeer Floats // I used my own recipe and served these at the party as well. They were a big hit. The secret is lots of good caramel.
Thanks so much for taking a look at our fun Harry Potter Party.
