I will admit it, I have read and loved all the Harry Potter books, and have seen all the movies but the most recent. If I were a kid, heck even as an adult, I think I would love to have a Harry Potter themed party, whether for a birthday or perhaps for a movie release. This book is chock full of fantastic ideas that fit nicely into any budget.
I first love the various crafts that can either be used to make decorations or as activities at the party. Each has a rating of difficulty, as well as a price estimate, so you can pick and choose what works best with your budget and party age group. The activities range from simple to complex, again depending on your preference. A big trend with child birthday parties is to have crafts or activities related to the theme, so I think a lot of parents will find these ideas helpful, and the kids will love them as well.
My absolute, hands down, favorite part of the book is the section of recipes for snacks and drinks. Again, the creativity and variety are simply fantastic.
In short, this book is extremely helpful for anyone planning a Harry Potter themed party of any sort. Parents will find the ideas helpful and easy to execute. One does not need to be magical to pull off a great party, all thanks to this book!
I received a review copy courtesy of the author.
This book exceeded my expectations. There are some very clever creations and imaginative games. Some of the ideas were a little hoakie, but for the most part it was right on. The author was able to create a party plan starting on platform 9 3/4, being sorted into houses, going to classes, and truly experiencing the Harry Potter world in an inventive and creative way.
Whether you use the crafts as decoration, keepsakes, or projects for the kids during the party- they are great. Each craft starts with a picture of the end product and a supply list, the instructions are easy to follow and well written. The only one that I found a bit challenging to follow was the Sorting Hat, but after some finagling we figured it out.
The classes cover herbology, potions, and charms lessons. Games cover not only the predictable Quiddich, but also Flubber Worm Races, House Elf Relay, Werewolf Attack, Patronus & Dementor, and more! The book finishes off with party food ideas which also provide a picture and easy to follow instructions and supply lists.
Go for it and have a happy Harry Potter fete!

While this isn't a bad book, it isn't a very good book either! I would have preferred to give it two and a half stars instead of three, but it's better than two stars. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Familytreeclimber
