Ella and I took turns reading the book aloud while the boys listened, we finished it up tonight at a few minutes after 6pm, and then started the movie just moments later.
Butter Beer...aka Orange Cream Soda in disguise
I put a Hogwarts sign on the front door, so as soon as Ella and Max got home from school they knew something special was going on.
The most un-healthy dinner I've made for the kids in a looong time, but hey...it was a party!
Sun & Stars lights from college & a Harry Potter sign printable
Family movie nights are the bomb!

My Harry Potter Party blog -- wow...these folks went ALL OUT!
And Pinterest is FULL of Harry Potter Party ideas!
Reading through all of these blog posts made me want to go all out tonight. I did what I could, but I had so many more ideas! There will most definitely have to be another Harry Potter Party at this house in the future...perhaps when we finish book four?
