Easy Ideas for a Fun Harry Potter Party
If you want to have a Harry Potter party, now is a great time to start planning and looking for props and party decorations. My daughter’s party was in the winter, and because we didn’t plan ahead, it was hard to find some things she wanted. But, being a thrifty DIY family, we made most of the props and decorations on our own.
My daughter made the invitations to look like the Hogwarts invitation letters. She printed them out, folded them and handed one to each of the 20 guests. Yep, we had a house full of teens that day, and I survived to tell about it!
I took all of these photos as the party was being set up, so the lighting isn’t all that great. But, these are not staged, so you can get an idea of what everything looked like.
Each guest sat on the stool and put the hat on. My daugher had made a list of what house each person was assigned to, and my younger kids took turns playing the hat’s voice. They hid under the table and would shout out the name of the house. The guests had a lot of fun with this part!
