Kara's Party Ideas Harry Potter + Make-a-Wish Foundation Party! - Magic Party Ideas |

I thought this HARRY POTTER + MAKE A WISH PARTY by Emily of Spaghetti Arms was also fitting for teacher appreciation week. After all, Harry spent most of his time being taught and schooled, right?!

This party is wonderful. Emily did such a good job, and for such a great cause, too.

I know that a lot of people have been looking for great Harry Potter birthday party ideas, as well. So here you go!

This is what Emily had to say about the party- “Styling creative parties is a huge hobby of mine, and I am beyond excited to share this party with you! Last weekend, I had the honor and privilege of helping with a very special event for an even more special young lady.

Make A Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. Milla, a seriously cool fifteen-year-old, is about six months into the two-year recovery process after a battle with leukemia. She has faced so much in her young life, and through it all, she has been inspired and cheered by the Harry Potter books. Her wish was to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando.

When Make A Wish grants a wish, they like to have a “wish party” to give the honored child the official news. The folks at Nashville’s beloved Parnassus Books hosted Milla’s wish party, and the beautiful bookstore proved to be the perfect setting for all of the Potter paraphernalia. Two of my biggest loves are parties and Harry Potter, so I went a little nuts!

  1. Such a fun party! I love the owl balloons…

    Where did you get the owl balloons? ADORABLE!! also how did you do the cake pop wings?

  3. Wow, thanks for featuring my party! It was really my honor to put this together.

    @Amber, we just bought white helium balloons and drew on them with Sharpies! For the cake pop wings, I piped white candy melts (well, really I just used a ziploc bag with the corner snipped) onto wax paper in the shape of wings. (I just did it freehand, but I think if I did them again, I would print out patterns and lay the wax paper over that so I could trace them.) I let those harden, then I attached just after dipping the cake pop, before the coating hardened.

  4. What a wonderful party!! This is by far, the best Harry Potter party I’ve set eyes on! Great job, you should be extremely proud! : )
