Can't wait for tomorrow!!

If you looked at these pictures and said, "Hunh?" Each year we have hosted a party for friends before going to see the latest Harry Potter movie. Our theme is always related to something in the book, but never aligned with the main plot of the book. We eat, we challenge our guests with trivia and improv, and we work ourselves into a frenzy of anticipation for the film!

And I am going to hound you for every recipe you have ever used at these parties because I promise you, there is a HP themed birthday party in L's future. The snitches are just too adorable for words!

Please excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the ground. You are a simply amazing hostess. What fun everyone must have had!!

Aimee said...

SO cool.

SO jealous.

Although we made the decision to let the boys see DH Pt. 2 in the theaters! We just have to show them movies 6 & 7 first, then we can all go see it together. Can't wait!!

What a wonderful party - I am in awe! And I am jealous!
I wish that I had more imagination and that DH Andy would be interested in parties and food like this.
At least I can enjoy reading about it on your blog! :-)

Outdo yourself every year Heather! We saw Pt.2 on Sunday morning (so we could go home and watch soccer girls) after re-watching pt.1 the night before. I will say again as I have said from the start...Neville is my Hero!

trip pics were awesome too, esp. waterfall with tiny tiny people :-D
