The BEST Harry Potter Birthday Party!

My daughter turned 10 years old. 10! I have a 10 year old. 
It sounds so crazy to say that, because it seems like just yesterday she was learning to walk and blowing kisses. She is now an avid reader and recently got in the Harry Potter world. Making Mama proud! Of course she wanted a Harry Potter Birthday party, so I made it happen. I want to share with you some of the fun things I made so you can have a party fit for a wizard!

Shirt and hair bow from That's So Presh

Platform 9 3/4 I made from one long sheet of wrapping paper (flipped over), a plain dishwashing sponge, and some paint! I used the sponge to "stamp" the brick design and I printer the platform sign off Google and just glued it on. Really cute for pictures!

This was the spots for gifts. Tablecloth is from Walmart and I made the sign with my Silhouette Cameo. 

Drink was "Polyjuice Potion" (green punch recipe found on Pinterest) and Muggle Water 
Sign was made by me and props for photos are from Walmart.

This was the fun part!
The potions are made from a spaghetti sauce jar, a Christmas ornament, and a candy dish. Taped the labels on and filled them with colored water.
Pirouettes are the wands, then I have lemon drops, gummy worms and jelly beans. The 'brooms' are tiny reeses cups, a dot of icing and a pretzel stick. Each girl got a bag to fill with candy and they all got a HP tattoo.

The sorting hats are ice cream cones with fudge cookies glued to the bottom with icing. I put the icing in a piping bag and drew the faces on. The fun pasrt is that inside the hats are colored m&m's that tell which house you are in - just like the real sorting hat! The girls loved it and it was all edible.

The wands I made with wooden dowels and hot glue. You just paint the hot glue on with a hot glue gun, let it dry and then paint it. All I had was gold, but you could use brown or even a stain. I like how these came out and the girls loved to play with them and take pictures.

In addition to the candy and cupcakes, I also ordered pizzas. You can't go wrong with that!

The backdrop was just black streamers and I got the '10' balloons from Walmart among with the HP signs that came in a party kit.

Needless to say it was a great time! Everything was pretty easy to make, just give yourself enough time so you aren't rushing.
