I’ve been in love with Harry Potter since I was a teenager when it came out. Now that my kids are getting older, they’re getting super into it too.
Harry Potter Parties are about creating magical fun with food. There were many great elements of food in the Harry Potter series from pumpkin juice, Butterbeer to memories of big dinners in the great hall.
