Herbs and potions
This party was for my oldest set of twins birthday last month. As they are boy/girl twins they normally always argue about what style of party we are going to have for them. However this year they told me right from the start that it was to be a Harry Potter party.
The party was held in my front yard. I set up a fake wall with a home made Platform 9 3/4 sign for the children to enter in through as they arrived at the party, it was a big hit. We had different activities to entertain the children through out the day such as Potion class, Herbology, Quidditch practice and Harry’s dress up box.
Potion class was really fun. Each child was given their own beaker in which they made magical potions. They had an edible potion first and then they had an exploding potion which made them squeal with delight. In Herbology the children planted Screaming Mandrake Seedlings (daffodil bulbs) in their own little plant pots. They got to take them home at the end of the day.
For party favours there was Ron’s Rainbow cookies, Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans, chocolate frogs and glass vials filled with poisonous dust (sherbet).
The children all visited Hagrid’s Hotdog Hut for their savoury food and then they all got to enter the Gryffindor common room (my living room) for the dessert table and treats. The dessert table was done in the colours of Gryffindor: gold and maroon.
For the twins’ birthday cakes they wanted the cake that Hagrid made for Harry in the first Potter movie. I did two of these cakes one for each twin.

The whole day was a big success, all the children had an amazing time and the twins were delighted with their party.
And I am not surprised they were delighted! Natty clearly put so much effort in and it all looks incredible! Well done Natty and thank you so much for sharing it with us :)
