The party started after school Friday afternoon. (We'd had to reschedule this party 2 or 3 times due to other birthday parties we were invited to. I just wasn't fast enough getting the invites out. Who knew a week was too slow?) I got a picture of the two birthday girls in the glaring sun. Emma really got into it, and put on her Hermione costume.
Then we had the kids make up their personal pizzas.
While the pizzas baked, we had the kids pick their wands, and turned them all loose with a list of spells from the series. Thank goodness the wands were fake, because the spells were flying in every direction. There was one condition- no Unforgivable Curses.
Then it was dinner time. I even peeled off the labels of the bottles of soda and replaced them with appropriate Harry Potter-esque printables.
I made this sign, but our guests weren't as excited as my family to pose a la Sirius Black.
