Harry Potter {marathon}

This weekend I had a few friends over to watch some H. Pizzle movies. We absolutely had to get primed & ready for the premier of Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince this Wednesday.

Now, I couldn't possibly pass up an opportunity to have a little extravagance included in our shindig. I made a candy tray of magically-themed treats, some Butterbeer, & lots of popcorn. Here are a few photos from our fĂȘte. Enjoy!

We got home from the market & realize we had not gotten our security device removed from the booze. Yikes. That explains the alarm that went off when I walked out....

{see the magic? SEE IT?!}
Conor {aka Harry Potter} saved the day with a magic spell {er, screw driver} to remove the top.

{homemade BB - 6 cups Cream Soda to 1 cup Butterscotch Schnapps}

Acid Pops were created to add to the selection of Harry Potter-esque candy.

Candy!

We are now prepped & ready for Wednesday {which also happens to be me & Conor's 3-year anniversary}.
Anyone else excited?
