harry potter party - more great hall and sorting

I'm including a lot of pics in my Harry Potter party posts for a few reasons...

1.  As previously mentioned I'm currently feeling very lazy.  I do not want to spend time sorting through photos to find the best ones.  I apologize to you as it means you have to look at a bunch of pictures that may be blurry, not good color, etc.  On the bright side at least you're getting pictures to look at (and that's saying a lot for this blog that has been ignored for the last little while)

2.  Im including lots of photos of guests as wells as party decor pics.  If any Potter fans make their way here to this little blog I think they'll be interested in seeing costumes too.  I'm someone that scours the internet for both party ideas and costume ideas and I know I always love coming across pictures of both.

3.  My husband wants to show co workers photos of the party and our photo sharing sites are blocked at work.  He can access this blog though so if you're angry about too many pictures send your complaints to him :)

Here are more shots from the great room & sorting

The floating candles were a hit...just look at Snape smiling

more of the candles...they came out perfectly - i'll be back with a how to (it's simple) you just need fishing line, hot glue, tacks and battery operated candles

i love a student with attitude


lots of love between Ravenclaw & Gryffindor











a few muggles even got in

First up, it's nice to see a teen party. Second, it's nice to see real pictures and not just carefully curated model home pictures. Everything looks wonderful.

Your floating candles idea is amazing! It really makes the rooms feel like Hogwarts without being anywhere near tacky. Love the silver dishes and serving dishes. Can't wait for the candle how-to!

I had the same question about the candles. We're about to do an HP theme party here as well. How did you manage to hang the battery operate candles? Youngrebels75@gmail.com
