Harry Potter Birthday Party – 9 1/4 edition – savory treats table

We knew from the beginning that our party had to be set inside Hogwarts castle. We loved our backdrop during Christmas and knew that it would be perfect for our party as well. The wall backdrop was made out of a plastic sheet from Oriental Trading which we hot glued onto bed sheets. We also reused the portraits and the floating candles we made for Christmas.

The Savory Treats Table

When designing the table and deciding what food we would like, both Eva and I wanted to have something like a showstopper. A couple years back, we had a bug party and the cake was a massive worm covering the length of the table. Immediately we both thought about Hagrid and the massive Hagrid’s little lunch sandwich was born. We wanted to present it appropriately and build a tray from a shelf and a painted wooden board that we covered in plastic wrap. Also I liked the idea to have something other than pizza for a kids party…

We like to use our cupcake toppers also in other food. The toppers makes it look more festive and it brings the whole theme together. Chips and dips get magical names and the savory table was almost ready. We had this wonderful fitting multi tier stand and converted it into our Dark Forest holder. We had spider webs, bat wings, thestral chips and blast ended skrewts that could be dipped into Felix Felices, Weasley’s Barrow dip or into Cockroach clusters. To make the table complete, we offered Gillyweed Sauerkraut, roasted Dragon egg nuts, Hufflepuff Popcorn and a Gryffindor potato salad. imageimage

Since we were in a state park with BBQ grills, we also offered hot dogs aehm I mean broomsticks. The pictures only show the before uncooked dogs, because once the party was in full swing, we forgot to retake it…
