1  Potterfest: The End of a HP Era. [pic-heavy] in Party Planning by nachturnal on: July 13, 2011 03:24:05 AM
Last night, my friends and I got together and did our own Potterfest before heading off to the midnight premier of HP7.2.  I just thought I'd share just in case anyone is planning theirs.  Smiley

We had roast for dinner, which wasn't particularly Potter-y.  However, this was dessert:

This consisted of: pumpkin tart;

treacle tart;

Butterbeer fudge;

and liquorice wands.

If you look really closely, you can see that some of the sparkles are shaped like little stars!  I couldn't resist.  Smiley  We took them to the cinema with us and handed them out to random moviegoers, and the entire box was gone by the time the trailers finished.

We also had owl cookies.

For drinks?  Butterbeer, of course!

At the end of the night, I brought out a surprise HP-themed lolly bags!

The gift tags on the bag:

Yeah, I know that gift tag is a little dodge, but I didn't notice until just now.  Sad  The others are nicer, I swear!

These lolly bags contain:
  • Fizzing Whizzbees (Fizzoes)
  • Cockroach Cluster (Coconut Rough)
  • Sherbet Lemon
  • Peppermint Humbugs
  • 1 Chocolate Frog
  • Bertie Bott's Every-Flavoured Beans (Beanboozled)
  • 1 Gobstopper
  • Magic Stars (from Milky Way not canon, but they were too cute)
  • 3 Chocolate Skulls

Thanks for viewing.  Smiley

EDITED for one last thing I forgot: we also made this spinner to sort people...

and whatever people landed on, we made them the corresponding shot.

Slytherin (Midori, Cointreau, vodka):

Gryffindor (tequila, strawberry liqueur):

Ravenclaw (Tuaca, blue curaao):

Hufflepuff (banana liqueur, creme de cacao):
