I have been playing catch up with my blog, since I did not post a lot last year, just posting the stuff from last year that have been asked about a lot. Jack had a Harry Potter party for his 6th birthday at an inflatable place. We had a private party room, that I could decorate a table in.
I made cute Hedwig bags for the kids. I was so tired that I didn't take a picture of what was inside the bag. LOL. But the kids got rings with the crest of the 4 different groups in the movies (Ravenclaw, etc).A hard plastic drinking cup filled with candy and a black cauldron that I got from the Oriental trading company filled with jelly beans. I labeled the cauldrons "Berttie Botts any flavored beans" with a silver sharpee. And of course everybody got to pick a home made hand crafted by me, LOL wand. It was so funny even the parents wanted a wand. So I did the Hedwig bags before I had a Pinterest account , but I used to browse through and get ideas, I don't remember where I found these, but I saved the pictures of my inspiration for the Hedwig bags. I liked the design of the top owl and the ruffles of the lower owl to look like feathers, but I didn't have a lot of time, so I did the top owl in Hedwig colors and just drew feather ruffles with a grey marker.
