This little sugar wanted the same themed birthday party her sister had at 7 years old. Which was great because I'd done all the planning beforehand and even saved a lot of the "stuff."
It was a Harry Potter-Faux Slumber-Movie Party!
"4:30pm - 8:00pm
Wear your jammies and bring a special blanket, stuffie, or pillow to cuddle while we watch the movie."
Hedwig balloons greeted the guests and were scattered all over the house. And each guest got to leave with one too.
Homemade quills, paper plates, and play-doh were all we needed for a couple quick games
Pizza came next.
I'd also planned to serve "Butter Beer Floats;" however, these 12 were already so wound up I decided against it. Seriously.
A little singing to the birthday girl…
… and then Quidditch CUPCAKES!
After dinner and dessert, we headed upstairs to the "theater" to snuggle-in for our birthday showing of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
We had a movie-time treat bar (which had to be removed about 20 minutes into the movie, as it become clear that some guests were going to eat themselves sick if given the opportunity).
Our partiers left with broomstick treat bags.
Each bag had a wand, a pair of Harry's glasses, a couple Chocolate Frogs and some of Bertie Bott's Every-Flavour Beans. (Very Wizard-y.)
I put the hubby to work at the last minute when I remembered that the "Thank you for helping me celebrate..." tags hadn't been fastened to the treat bags yet.
Daddy to the rescue!
