The journey at Hogwarts continues as I share more details from the Harry Potter Party. First, I have to share the wonderful graphics by Susan Acres of Opal and Mae. I have used her cupcake toppers for the Wonderland Party and really love her style. I contacted her to see if my chance she had any Harry Potter themed toppers. She didn’t have anything at that time, but had some Harry Potter on her mind. Susan’s Harry Potter creations were perfect for this party. I her designs everywhere; from cupcake toppers to water bottle labels to photo props. I even used the cupcake toppers for the tree garland. Thanks Susan for the great designs. (be sure to visit her shop and check out her work.)

Water and “Butter Beer” were served to the guests. The water labels are by Martha Stewart and the Butter Beer labels and available to print here. The butter beer was actually cream soda, but don’t tell the kids.
Did I forget to mention that Hermione made an appearance at the the party? Yes, she did. She sorted the guests to each house with the sorting hat, tea leaf reading, face painting, and a little bit of magic. It was great entertainment and really created the feeling of being at Hogwarts.
Dry ice is always a great touch, especially at a Harry Potter party. Also check out the Mardauer Map water bottle labels by Opal and Mae.
I put together a little photo booth for the kids. I took pics with my camera and with a Polaroid camera. Funny, they had never seen one before, talk about magic! I used artwork by Opal and Mae to create the props on a stick.
Each guest was treated to a broomstick party favor. The cute Thank You tags by Opal and Mae.
That wraps up the Hogwarts experience. I probably had as much fun creating the party details as much as the kids did at the party. Happy Birthday to my niece and thanks to Brandy for letting me do my thing for this party.
