    Harry Potter Birthday Party

    Back in February, we celebrated Davyn's 7th birthday.  The boy is Harry Potter obsessed.  Strangely, his favorite character and object of the most obsession is Lupin, the werewolf.  I don't know how many times he has watched that movie. 

    These were the cute invites (thank you Pinterest for the idea and Cyndee for the balloon art skills).  Davyn loved putting them on his friends' doorsteps and bolting.  The insides were darling, too, but I never took a picture (a common, current theme in my life).

    And here was the cake:

    First, we had a feast:

    I really wish I had taken more pictures at the party.  It was the most enjoyable party I've ever thrown for my kids.   I was pondering on this and realized it's simply because they're growing up.  I wasn't babysitting a bunch of kids.  I thoroughly enjoyed the personalities of all of these boys that came and joined us.

    Jim then worked his magic.  The man seriously has kid party skills.  He devised a way for to use a sorting hat for the boys' wands to choose them.  Then he gave them a dueling lesson.  He taught them three spells (rock, paper, scissors style so that each one beat one and lost to one), and they loved it.  Then they played quidditch outside with an awesome set-up that my Megan friend loaned me last minute. 

    Fun boys, fun times.  I love my 7-year-old D.

    Oh, and I love my Jim who brought me these gorgeous flowers right before the party. They stayed alive for so long!

    Hi! You know I love a good birthday post! I loved the Hedwig balloon. (I pinned the same thing on Pinterest not long ago, hoping I'd have a Harry Potter enthusiast for a party someday)

    The cake was, not surprisingly, AMAZING! How do you do writing on the cakes? That doesn't look like piped-on buttercream.
