On Sunday, July 31st, on Harry’s birthday, we had the most wonderful Harry Potter party at my house. My roommate and I spent about 3-4 weeks planning and creating for this wonderful occasion. (It’s actually one of my 23 before 24, to host a magical party!)
We tried to go as “all out” as possible without getting ridiculous. We handmade almost everything and made many trips to Goodwill for other decorations. So, for the quality of the party, I think we did a very good job money wise.
With the last movie just out a few weeks ago, we were all feeling nostalgic about Harry Potter and it seemed like the perfect time to have a Harry Potter themed party. Not to mention that our house is perfect for this type of party. It’s older and has all wood floors, so it fit well with the Harry Potter theme.
It was such a crazy fun experience and I would definitely do it all over again!
*Warning… very image heavy…. but that’s good right?!*

I think we did a pretty good job
Thanks to all friends, old and new, that came to our celebration! It was a complete success! Hope you all have enjoyed the little photo journey through my party!
I’ll close with a quote from Albus Dumbledore…
“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
live what you love.
