Weeks of planning and preparation lead up to my fantastic mom’s 60-birthday and retirement party.
Over Thanksgiving we decided it should be themed by the magical world of Harry Potter. I had started knitting my mom a scarf to wear, while all the while bugging her “Have you taken the Pottermore quiz yet? You really should, it’s neat…you can find out what house you’re in.” [This year in Ohio Thanksgiving was overwhelmingly centered around all things HP, in a good way, of course]
Mommy didn’t know her party was HP themed, and really we didn’t even tell her there was a party for her, just to not make plans that day. Anyway, another half a foot into her scarf,
I find out she’s a Ravenclaw! I ordered some yarn to start that one….and just ended up finishing 0 scarves.
Anyway, got everything ready for the party and the product was a success! Forget my mom, I have a WONDERFUL time! Oh Hogwarts…you would be my home as well.
We sent her invitation via balloon Hedwig.
I had so much fun planning this thing! Golden snitch Ferrero Rochet, sorting hat cookies, butterbeer cupcakes, pumpkin juice, chocolate frogs!! 😍💓😍💓😍
