I love Harry Potter. I mean, I LOVE Harry Potter. And, I’m just a little excited about the release of the 6th movie this week! Now, Kathleen in my office may be going to a midnight show, but I’ve got kids, so I’ll be stuck home. But, I’ll be there Wednesday night!
And, before the movie? Oh, yes. I’m throwing a Harry Potter movie release party! Nothing too fancy, but I’m having a few people over for a quick bite to eat before the movie. I got everyone a pair of Harry Potter glasses to wear to the theatre. I’m putting them with a small box of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans to bring. (You can find these at most candy stores.)
For decorations, I’m using a Sorting Hat in the center of the table, surrounded by small cauldrons and old looking books stacked on top of each other. I’ve even got a stuffed owl I’ll be adding to the mix.
For food, I went online and did a search for Harry Potter recipes. (Man, I thought I loved Harry Potter until I did that search. People are really into this!) So, I found a ton and I’m planning on making butter beer, pumpkin pasties, chocolate frogs and jelly slugs. mmm…
Here’s a Harry Potter party we wrote for our site with some more ideas! Are you having a party? Send us pictures! We’d love to see them
Up next? A Twilight movie release party in November. Stay tuned!
