My Sister is always super kind when it comes to special occasions, so when a close friend of hers got in contact about organising a surprise party I jumped at the chance! The friend arranged the hire of a hot tub for the weekend, and I provided the venue and food. I decided to go for a Harry Potter theme as my Sister is a super fan! I searched through Pinterest a few evenings and came up with the following:
So first in the kitchen, I had a drinks table and called it ‘Snape’s Potion Class’. I used a light box, string lights, bulb glasses and bottles under bell glasses.
I also had a sweetie table with suitcases, a cage (put a rabbit inside instead of an owl as an inside joke!!) and snacks with Harry Potter names.
Moving onto the living room; I had an invisibility cloak stand using a frame, broomstick and some hangers.
Then letters coming out of the fireplace, using a string of flashing lights and some a5 pieces of paper folded over and taped.
I made a Photo Booth from a large piece of card.
I wrote on the mirror with lipstick.
Then in the bathroom I placed a sign on the top of the toilet and wrote on the mirror.
And lastly heres the Birthday girl herself after 3 hours in the hot tub!!!
These decorations were all created on a super tight budget and most things I already had! It just shows you don’t need to spend a fortune when you can be creative with what you have in your home!
Let me know if you have any other great party ideas!
Hope you enjoy reading, as much as I enjoy writing!
