Magical Harry Potter party ideas!

Once upon a time, a little book spawned six sequels, and they all sold lots of copies, and then there were seven (eventually eight) films based on the books, which lots of people went to go see. Young and old alike loved the story of the orphaned boy-who-lived. Between all the book-reading and movie-going, an empire was born.

Harry Potter.  Heard of it?

It's no surprise that HP merchandise is everywhere, but some of it......ugh.  No.  Just...no.  Google "harry potter party supplies" and see what I mean.

Did you see?  We can do better than that.

From around the web, here are some fantastic suggestions for a tasteful Harry Potter Party that would be appropriate for kids or adults...

Above, these charming movie ticket sleeves were created by Little Ant Designs.  You could easily adapt them to be party invitations.  I also love the gorgeous invitations in this link by JC on Story Rhyme.

Little Ant Designs turned their party site into Harry's world with Ollivanders wand shop, a Hogwart's Trophy Case, a "Pensieve", the "Yule Ball", and classrooms set up for Divinitaion, Potions, and Herbology. See all the rooms here.


From party girl Hostess with the Mostess come these fun ideas for Magic Drinks (they seemingly change color!) and Dragon Eggs.

Lastly, since Harry's premiere is so close to the holidays, you might want to inject a bit of holiday cheer into your party with custom napkins, costers, and more from For Your Party.

What are your HP plans?  Did you see the movie at midnight?  Are you having a pre-party?
