Harry Potter Themed Birthday Party


02/04/2018 by AndreaUrbanFox

Every year I try give my son the best possible birthday party. This is because as a child, I had super awesome parties and I know these precious memories last a lifetime.

This year Elliot decided the theme would be Harry Potter. This has been the most difficult theme so far for me.

The party was held at Weavers Adventure Playground. This is a nice open space where kids can run free. They do private hire and I cannot recommend the place enough. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Alex who was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. 29572356_10160235493855716_7318975084405146789_n

Preparations started early. Props, Witches hats, cauldrons and goodies for the party bags were bought straight from China suppliers. This keeps the costs down.

Second stage was to make papier mache Dementor pinatas. Pinatas are a great way to entertain the kids and they also make great decorations. Each pinata too 3 days to make because of the drying time of papier mache.28168155_1832862476733028_166486289512019735_n

The final product was approved by Elliot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrovRVP543A

The food:

homemade chocolate truffles (brigadeiros), aka Owl droppings.


homemade cupcakes (this is the recipe I used) decorated with Harry potter characters made of edible rice paper.
