Did you know that I love all things Harry Potter? I mean LOVE. That’s why this year for my annual Halloween Party we are doing all things Harry Potter. So here are a few ways you, too, can be transported to that magical world and have a magical “Harry Potter” Halloween Party.

That magical world created by the brilliant J.K. Rowling has so many elements that captivate and move you. Everything from Hogwarts to Butter Beer makes me want to jump through the pages. But, alas, I cannot. However, I can have the next best thing.
