A Harry Potter Thanksgiving
Because my family is beyond awesome, we didn’t just have your average traditional Thanksgiving gathering. No, we kicked it up about notch and a half and held the first ever, in the history of our minds…
Harry Potter Thanksgiving
Ok, so this post will be all about the pictures but let me give some background on how this came about. My family is crazy about Harry Potter, as will be glaringly evident below. We’ve read all the books (multiple times), watched all the movies and we even own all the audio versions so we can listen in the car. We ~HEART~ the Boy who Lived! This past summer when The Deathly Hallows part 2 came out, my sister-in-law, AKA — Professor Trelawny, and I were texting each other about how in love we were with the movie. Between the two of us, we thought it would be fun to have a Harry Potter party. It quickly morphed into a costume extravaganza!
Let me show you some pictures!
You can’t have a Harry Potter party without the famous trio — Ron (w/ Scabbers), Hermione and Harry
Even the Death Eaters were invited. Yours truly as Bellatrix.
Cutest Crookshanks ever.
We even let Voldermort come.
Professor Minerva McGonagall and Cornilius Fudge
Lucious Malfoy and Dobby
And then there was food! The wonderful Trelawny made chocolate frogs and peppermint toads with character cards included. In addition, we also had pumpkin juice, chocolate cauldrons and chocolate brooms. Of course there was turkey, more potatoes than you can imagine, stuffing-muffins, veggies, pies … you name it, it was there.
We also had props. Trelawny (yes, she’s been neglecting her crystal ball gazing to get all this done) made a Herbology book for Neville, Tom Riddle’s diary complete with conversation between Harry and Tom written out and more. It was AMAZING!
Here’s our cast list!
