Harry Potter Party (part one)
It’s a family tradition to have a Halloween party and paint pumpkins. We’ve been doing it for years, and the tradition is part of our family history. As my kids get older, these events are especially fun for us. Watching the excitement in Alina’s eyes makes it all so memorable! This year, my sister decided to throw a Harry Potter party and, in true sister fashion, went all out. She really out did herself. How one person has this much party throwing talent is beyond me. Even with all her past party masterpieces, this one certainly takes the prize for most detailed.
Harry Potter Party: The Invitations
Two owls arrived on our doorstep carrying acceptance letters and train tickets to Hogwarts. From there, the adventure began. We arrived at the train depot right on time and, upon entering Auntie’s house, were transformed into Hogwarts students with our own wizard robes and wands to complete our school uniform. The halls of Hogwarts are lined with portraits of professors, headmasters and famous witches and wizards, making a grand entrance. We even had two adorable house elves.
Enjoy the mother load of all photos!
Amazing right? I know that Alina had a blast, but in truth, had no idea what was going on. My sister attempted to read her the books before the big event, but without pictures, this two year old was not trying to sit longer than 10 minutes. She watched a bit of the first movie, but again, wasn’t that into it. Regardless, I’m pretty sure the adults had more fun than the kids this time around. Especially while playing a friendly game of Quidditch. Complete with browns to ride on, we ran around outside trying to get a ball into a hole. It was a blast!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for Harry Potter Party Part Two of what certainly turned out as the party of the year! Still to come is kitchen decor, games and more!
