I have an excellently phenomal group of close friends, and we love having parties together. In fact, this Christmas we’re jumping on the good old bandwagon and having a “favorite things” party. Later this week, I’ll let you in on what favorite things I didn’t pick (don’t want to ruin the surprise!), and in January, I’ll fill you in on the whole party, but for now, I want to backtrack to our last themed party.
The button was also the Sorting: the back of each button said what house you belonged to.
Our appetizers were Broomsticks, Anti-Dementor Medicine, and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans:
We had some delicious (grown-up) Butterbeer, as well (cream flavored pinnacle vodka, cream soda, butterscotch snapps, and then a little scoop of vanilla ice cream for foam). For meals, we had garlic broomsticks (Pilsbury cresent rolls un-rolled and shaped into brooksticks), chicken, and Yorkshire Pudding.
For dessert, we offered Snitches (yes, the wings are Fritos :)):
Here’s the whole spread (with Gryffindor colors, naturally!):
With Harry Potter films in the background, and great friends, you just can’t go wrong!
Are you having any themed parties this holiday season?
