Harry Potter Dessert Table

I was in charge of desserts, and it was really difficult to not go over the top with all kinds of little treats from the books and movies like Chocolate Frogs and Pumpkin Pasties and countless other treats, so I had to narrow it down to just a few desserts.  There was a cake, of course, decorated with chocolate chip "footprints" to look like the Marauders' Map and topped with a golden snitch (made from Fererro Rocher gold wrappers).  A treacle tart, which I decorated with a powdered sugar stencil of a stag, which is Harry's patronus.  And a batch of Honeydukes Caramel "Slugs" (aka salted caramels) which have always proved to be quite popular at parties.

I took along my collection of silver trays and other vintage pieces to use at the party, candle sticks, books wrapped in ornate looking covers, and a few pieces of Harry Potter artwork from my oldest son's bedroom.  For their parts, the other girls did an amazing job with the food, drinks and decorations.  There were even candles suspended from the ceiling, little bags of Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans and a shimmering bowl of Pensieve Punch.  Everyone had so much fun, and it was a wonderful way to spend a day with friends and welcome a new baby into the world!
