Mallorie & Her Magical Harry Potter Themed Party

One of my favorite book series that Mallorie has really gotten into over the years has been Harry Potter. I love her curiosity for it and that she lets me geek out on all things HP with her! Ove the weekend we got to celebrate Mallorie's 9th birthday and we couldn't think of a more magical way to do it then with a Harry Potter themed party.
Before the party, we mailed the personalized Hogwarts acceptance letter and Hogwarts Express Platform 9-3/4 tickets. This not only set the tone for the party but what kid doesn’t LOVE getting mail? It was all the buzz on the playground and the children couldn’t wait to turn in their tickets to get on the Hogwarts Express Platform.
For the Platform 9 3/4, I just bought this backdrop and decorated the top with balloons and the sides with gold streamer. Super simple but so cute!
I knew from the get-go that I wanted a gold, black and white theme, so I made this DIY streamer backdrop to "set the stage" sort of speak for the rest of the party. I think it gives the room such a fun pop.
For our banquet feast, we kept it simple with pizza, jelly beans, chocolate frogs, poly juice potion, chips, popcorn, and cupcakes.  
Here are a few more pictures from the party.
