I am still working on all these Harry Potter Party photos and WOW! So many details I have to share. So here we are at our "Three broomsticks Inn" our one stop shop for snacks and spirits. I have to admit I ran out of time for all those baked party goodies you see on other Harry Potter posts. So just some very cool and yummy drinks and store bought snacks here.
The sign up above was made with three $1 store decorative broomsticks. How I found these in the middle of May when they are usually a fall decor item is beyond me. LOL! The rest is a paper wrapped piece of cardboard, a candle lantern and some cricut letters cut with the "Life's a beach" cricut cartridge. All stuck together with Helmar Acid Free Glue.
I found this amazing Butterbeer recipe through Pinterest. I contacted Colleen over at Just Sweet and Simple Blog and asked her if I could use some of her party images/projects in mine, she was there to answer any questions I had and was very helpful and allowed me to use some of her ideas and files. Thanks Colleen!. I have to admit she was a great inspiration to me. Her Blog post called "Harry Potter Party" is where I got this recipe for the Butterbeer.
The Polly Juice Potion Punch though was re-created from one of our favorite party punch recipes. Last year it was called Yoda Soda for our Lego Star Wars Party.
Recipie: (so complicated it is very difficult to replicate - hehe)
1 - 1/2 gallon of lime sherbert
2 - 2 liters of Lemon Lime Soda
Oh and this year we added dry ice... LOL! That's it! Kids from school talk about this forever! We had them ask my son a few times if I was going to make the Yoda Soda again for the Harry Potter party. Man that was a fun party too.. and those light saber invitations... WHEW! I am getting sidetracked.
We Made Harry Potter House straws. They are the colors and flags of the houses in the stories. With the paper flags the kids could write their names on them to know who's glass each one was. They were put together with cardstock and Helmar 450 Quick Dry Glue.
We had a ton of candy, cake and cupcakes so we didn't have to many other snacks but per my son's request, cheese balls were on the menu as "golden snitch puffs".
Next I will post about the Golden Snitch Cake and the Owlery Cupcakes!
