Looking for some simple ways to bring Harry Potter's world to life? Having a themed party, a Harry Potter day with the kids, or a viewing party for the movies? Here's a little magic for your Friday!
Let's start our trip out with a visit to Honeydukes where you will find a wide assortment of sweets.
Licorice Wands (Twizzlers)
The labels for all of the candies were printed from the computer. If you use a stamp pad to scuff along the edges of the labels, it gives them a an antiqued look.
Lemon Drops (lemon candies)
Jelly Slugs (sour gummy worms which are displayed crawling around in dirt--cookie pieces)
Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans (Jelly Belly candies)
Some of the candies were placed in water goblets. Remember Transfiguration Class?
And my personal favorite...
Chocolate Frogs (milk chocolate melted and hardened in a frog mold)
The frog packages were tied up with ribbons in the colors of the four houses.
Now that we are loaded up on sweets, let's travel to The Three Broomsticks for something to drink. Today the specials are...
Butter Beer (It's not really beer. It is cream soda. You'll find the recipe and printable label found here.)
I'll have what he's having. Professor Filius Flitwick ordered cherry syrup and soda with ice and an umbrella on his trip to this popular hangout. You can just add a jar of cherries (with the juice) to a 2-liter bottle of Cherry Coke. Ice is a must, but the umbrella is optional.
Are you craving a sit down with one of the books or movies now?
Happy reading (or watching)!
