Since I couldn't pull off a big Harry Potter party like I have before I kept it simple and brought the party to the movie line.
The first few of us got in line at 4 pm and secured the 4th spot in line with the first three spots being small groups of people. This allowed us to get great seats once inside the theater.
We spread blankets and chairs out as we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. By 9 pm all 31 of us (plus a couple friends that came to hang out in line but not go to the movie) were there. Once we were all assembled we ate take out from The Three Broomsticks
A friend of mine spent hours drawing the Dark Mark on most of the teenagers that were with us
We played games - speed Scrabble, Harry Potter Uno, Harry Potter Scene It and more.
It seems that perhaps we need some help with spelling or access to a few more letters
In addition to our Three Broomsticks dinner we ate candy, candy and more candy (have I mentioned yet that the lack of sleep and abundance of candy have made me feel like vomiting?)
Here are the trolley offerings...
The bottom of the basket was filled with muggle candy - an assortment of chocolate bars but they had to stay hidden because muggle packaging just doesn't mix with wizard packaging.
Cinnamon Disks - I had to throw a little Twilight shout out it into this packaging
Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts. A good friend had just brought these back for me from Hawaii hence the name.
There was a lot more candy - some that I did packaging for and some that I left as is. I wish I had more pictures but in our rush to get out the door to get in line I only managed a few pictures.
As for the movie - we loved it! As always the Harry Potter movies are a visual feast - the set design, costumes, everything are amazing. The story line was off from the books a bit but I loved it anyway. I liked the humor in this film. In my opinion it is a must see.
