Harry Potter Party!

It all started with a letter...

Last night I was lucky enough to be one of twelve guests to attend dinner in the Great Hall of Hogwarts. Hosted by Bryton Taylor of Food in Literature, we dined on food found throughout the Harry Potter books and marvelled at the talent, time and effort that Bryton put in to recreating the world of Harry Potter. Throughout the night which was attended by friends (many who are book bloggers and food bloggers), we constantly discovered new details that added to the authenticity of the night.

I'll let the pictures tell the story but a great night was had by all.

What are we studying this year?

Advanced Potion Making, anyone?

Preparing potions

Plenty of supplies in the potions storeroom

Thankfully, Snape was not present.

As usual, the ceiling was bewitched to resemble the night sky.

Don't forget to speak clearly when you travel by Floo Powder.

Dobby stopped by for a visit.

The Chamber of Secrets has been opened...
...but never fear, Professor Sprout has some
mandrakes that are almost ready.

As you exit the Great Hall you can pay a visit to Herbology
where the mandrake are growing up nicely! 

The bathroom was complete with a recording of Moaning Myrtle
to keep us company and our very own stained-glass mermaid. 

"Is it illegal to drink and apparate?"

If you haven't already found your way to Food in Literature, I suggest you check it out. Bryton recreates food found in books and often throws themed parties from which she shares how-to guides on her website. As a long time friend of Bryton's, I have been to many different parties and she just out-does herself time and time again. I don't know how she isn't working behind the scenes in Hollywood!
