My littlest sister is heading off to college. Remember the cute rainy day umbrella I made for her? I wanted to send her off to school in style, and what better way than to throw a Harry Potter Costume Party?
***As I add new posts about this party I will attach the links below for your convenience.***
Party Invitations and Prep:
- Send out invitations (I did this via Facebook, but you could do something like THIS.)
- Let each person pick who they would like to be. Here is a great List of Harry Potter Characters you can choose from. (I wanted an even amount of good guys and bad guys to sort into their different houses.)
- Our dinner was potluck. Let each person pick a few things to bring to dinner. Here is a List of Food in the Harry Potter books if you need some dinner ideas.
