If being a Ravenclaw means being more like Luna Lovegood, then count me in. That girl is literally the fictional manifestation of all I wished I could have been during school. There are so many moments where Luna is the most perfect character in the Harry Potter series and in true celebration of her birthday (February 13th) I thought I’d write a post about just how flawless she really is.
If Muggle Musings has taught me anything, it’s that you need to know where you stand in the Harry Potter Universe. How would you act in certain situations? What house would you be in? What better way to find out than doing a little Harry Potter Personality Quiz!
Everyone has their vices and addictions. Mine for the last 20 years or so, has been Harry Potter Merchandise. I am a complete sucker for anything Harry Potter themed – to the point where I feel like my bedroom has become a Ravenclaw Haven.
When visiting Harry Potter Studios last year, I realised I was a WIZARD at Harry Potter Trivia. I know so much about this fictional world (considering I can’t remember what happened last week…) and so I decided to use my knowledge to help spark interesting events in my local community.
Who doesn’t like to treat themselves a little at Christmas? Especially when you’ve spent so long shopping for others and you need a little TLC!
I went off to see family in Brighton this weekend and grabbed the opportunity to visit the new Oliver’s Brighton – a Harry Potter gift shop that’s just opened this winter!
Harry Potter Studios is one of the most magical places on earth. I REALLY don’t want to spoil anything for you and I’d encourage everyone who likes HP to go, so please look away now if you don’t want to see the details…
Are you still here? Okay, good.
It’s the most Magical Time of the Year!
I revisited the Harry Potter Studios this week, for an exclusive evening tour which included a meal, Butterbeer and a Guidebook (plus entry til midnight!) The drive there was great as I brought along Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit and absolutely smashed the competition – as any Ravenclaw would.
By now I probably don’t need to tell you guys, I am a Ravenclaw… I’ve said it so many times before (but I am just so proud of it!) I try to represent wherever I can – hosting Harry Potter events, attending afternoon teas and even starting a Harry Potter discussion group (SOON).
When I realised that Primark was having a Harry Potter relaunch I got super excited and headed off in search of some Ravenclaw goodies. Alas, although there were so many Hogwarts, HP and Quidditch related things, all I could find was this measly tea-towel that was Ravenclaw themed… (Although of course I bought it anyway).
Three words: HARRY POTTER HALLOWEEN. I love a Harry Potter party – any opportunity to go to an HP themed event, I’m there. This year for a Halloween treat, my friends organised a visit to Colwick Hall in Nottingham, for a Harry Potter themed afternoon tea. I was very disappointed with dismal Ravenclaw representation – where are you all at? The place was buzzing with Gryffindors!
The food, on the other hand, was spectacular! Everything from the cakes to the cocktails was themed and there was so much food we couldn’t finish it! We started off with a butterbeer which rivalled Warner Bros Studios for the taste – you had to mix it up to get the right effect of the creamy butteriness – mmmm.
26th June marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone! This is Part 2 of my two-part series of Harry Potter party inspiration from my birthday party! Below is all my Harry Potter Party food; to find out what I did for my invitations and decor click here! For more… read below!
I had a lot of ideas for Harry Potter party food and wanted to make sure that people knew what they were called! As with all aspects of my themed parties, everything was going to be a reference: from the food to the wall decor, the drinks to the games. First off I got some mini-metal keys, black ribbon and printed out some labels onto parchment style paper…
For most of my twenties, I’ve been hosting themed parties (Disney, Video Game Characters etc…) and so this year for my birthday I hosted a Harry Potter themed party!
Harry Potter is one of my favourite things ever and next week is the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first book! So in conjunction with this and my birthday party, I thought I’d do two posts about my Harry Potter Party Inspiration! Part one below is my Harry Potter Party Decorations and Invitations, followed by part 2 next week (June 24th) for food/drinks and games!
