Category Archives: Party Time
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I’m going to count on that for this post! I spent so much time editing the photos that I’m all out of words… other than to say…. OUR HARRY POTTER PARTY WAS EPIC!
We had our family come earlier so all the little kid games were done first – and then, when the sun went down, the DJ, black lights, big speakers, and blow up movie screen for the back yard, came up! We had a Hogwarts scavenger hunt, lots of yummy food – soups, baked potato bar, and whatever yummy things my family brought.
And now, all of my planning has shifted to what I want our house to be like in the front for Halloween night! I couldn’t have done any of this without our nanny, Kenzie. If you want to get a hold of her for any party or wedding planning, you can find her on instagram @kenziesevents. As long as you don’t steal her away from me! The whole process of making the wands, making the chocolate wands, making the potions, making the golden snitches, and everything else…. was SO fun, and we will use the decorations over and over again. If there weren’t enough pictures in this post, you can find a few more in the post just before this one…. and I’m sure this won’t be the last year I go all crazy on Halloween! We are even talking about keeping some of it up for a Hogwarts Christmas!
Oh, and if you’re wondering who I was… I was Dumbledore, of course!
The best part of the night was having my family there (Scott, Camille, Janae, Dave, and Dan is in his invisibility cloak!) I also wish I had a big pictures of the whole group! Why didn’t I do that?….
My only regret is that I didn’t have someone taking pictures once the party started. I was too wrapped up in everything going on to get enough pictures of the guests. Well, there is always next year!
