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):

Looks like you created quite a spread.  I'm sure your friends were thrilled!   Cheesy
I've been organizing the Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Part II Swap, and we realized that there is no thread of Harry Potter recipes here on Craftster.  If you have the time or inclination, we'd love to have you share some of your recipes with us.  You can either give recipes their own posts, with pictures and such then send me a link to it, or you can post a recipe directly into our thread. I just realized that you have provided several links to some of the recipes!  I think I'll have to create a non-craftster link section to include them!  Grin

It was a little bit of a group effort.  One guest made the treacle tart and butterbeer fudge (which is why there's no link to the treacle tart recipe), and another and I did the cookies.  It was months in planning, and we were so stuffed with food when we left for the movie.  Overall, I'm really pleased with how it went.  Smiley

Thanks!  Slytherin tastes like candy with an alcohol burn, Hufflepuff tastes like chocolate-covered banana candy, Gryffindor tastes... interesting, and Ravenclaw tastes a little like candied orange peel.

I'm most interested in trying the Gryffindor shot. I like me my tequila!!!

Thanks!  They were a really long time in planning, just because a lot of American liqueurs are not available here.

The Gryffindor shot is a little better with a splash of lime juice.  Wink
