Harry Potter Party Ideas

Harry Potter Party

Your owl is on his way to deliver an important notice from Hogwarts ... A Harry Potter Party is the way to go! Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermoine Granger need your help to defeat Lord Voldemort. With magic and intrigue around every corner your Harry Potter Birthday Party is going to catch the imagination of all your guests!



Harry Potter Party Invitations

Make handmade Harry Potter Birthday Party Invitations out of "aged" looking paper. Staining the paper with tea and letting it dry is a great trick! With the help of an Adult, burn the edges of the paper (this is optional). Handwrite the letter with calligraphy type writing. State how they are invited / accepted to attend an event at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
