Some birthday parties are full of pin the tail on the donkey and sack races, while others are full of inflatable bouncey castles or trips to the bowling alley. No matter what you're style, there's no denying these fabulous Harry Potter pointers are sure to be a hit at your next party, in fact, no one will ever suspect you're a Muggle! You might know Jennifer Sbranti best as The Hostess With The Mostess, but either way, she's teamed up with iVillage and has put together 12 Easy Ideas for a Wizard-Worthy Harry Potter Birthday Party. We know many of you are reading Harry Potter with your children (or already have) and with the next movie due out in November, we're sure to see the mania pick back up again. It's one we're in full support of, imagination, creativity and Quidditch... yes please!
Over at iVillage, you'll find everything from Invitations, color-changing party drinks, potions, spells and even a transfiguration booth. It's a great place to start with your own Hogwarts - Hoedown (though that brings pictures of Dumbledore in overalls to mind)!
