A Harry Potter Birthday Party
I was a Harry Potter fan even before kids.  Naturally, my kids are fans, too.  When my daughter was 6, she wanted to have Harry Potter theme birthday party.  It turned out to be a huge production at our house, but it was a real hit! It even received a Special Mention honor from birthdaypartyideas.com.  Years later, my daughter still has her goodie bag and plays with her stuff from that party.

I wanted to record the details on how I pulled this party off, step by step. Preparations started about 6 weeks in advance.  I went kind of overboard, but it was fun!  Our party was for 5-7 year olds; adjust according to the age and interests of your kids. Just use whatever's useful to you. And I hope you and your kids have a great time at your Harry Potter party!

This site is organized chronologically to follow the actual sequence of the party. I have accumulated several images and PDF files that can be downloaded to your computer and printed - all are free.
