How to Throw a Quick and Easy Harry Potter Birthday Party
Man, I wish Harry Potter had been written just a few years earlier, so I could’ve had a Harry Potter birthday party at some point. Now, I just get to live vicariously through my kids. 🙂
You may already know that my youngest’s first birthday party was a Harry Potter “The Chosen ONE” themed party (if you haven’t seen that post yet, be sure to check it out – lots of great ideas for food, games, and activities in it). I had so much fun putting it all together, that I just didn’t feel like I was ready to stop when it all ended! So naturally, I kept shopping and writing down ideas that I could share with all of you.
Thankfully, my 6-year-old son has started reading the first Harry Potter book with me, and is quickly turning into a Potter-head himself. So, I have faith that I’ll get to use some of these ideas again for one of his future parties!
Accio party hats!
