My Super Awesome Harry Potter 30th Birthday Party

So remember how I was planning a Harry Potter party? Well, I’m here to tell you that it was so much better than I ever could have possible imagined, and no future party will ever beat it!

I didn’t take too many photos the night of, since I was too busy mingling, but I made sure to take some the next day before we tore everything down. I also didn’t get many photos of all my friends dressed up, but I got some from other people. I was pumped that more than half of our guests played along and came in costume. I have the best people in my life!

Anyways, I’ll let the photos do the talking from here…

Professor Trelawney

That’s all the photos I have, but I wish so badly I’d taken more of people dressed up. We had a few other death eaters, an escaped prisoner of Azkaban, a second Trelawney, a couple students, an Owl, and of course a few muggles! We had so much fun, and Jut and I are seriously considering having a “Welcome Back to Hogwarts” party every single year.

I mean, what else will we do with the Sorting Hat?!
