The Paynes know how to throw a birthday party!! Merritt is one of Raegan’s friend’s at school and she has become full-on HP obsessed this year.  I can’t blame her.  Personally, I, too, am obsessed (in fact, when my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary…he surprised me with a trip to Harry Potter World!)  So as Merritt’s mom started talking about her plans for this party, there was no doubt it needed to be documented and I couldn’t wait to capture all the amazing details.  There were floating candlesticks in the Great Hall, flying letters being delivered by owls, Winged Keys, Polyjuice potion and Butterbeer to drink…the details were endless.  All of the girls (and one boy…my son) got to come home with their own spells books, wands, book mark, a feather pen, AND a Patronus charm necklace.  The kids got sorted in their Houses and sat at their respective tables in the Great Hall to enjoy a Great Feast of chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, and bread.  It was truly epic.  The party concluded with a game of HP bingo AND Quidditch!  There were so many details every time I looked around, I realized there was something I hadn’t seen, including Moaning Myrtle in the bathroom. 

We are a Harry Potter loving family, but it has definitely renewed our love and as we speak my kids are sorting each other into Houses to play HP with some of the neighbors.  

I was so happy to be able to capture all of these details and memories while everyone was enjoying themselves and soaking it all in! 


Got something to say?
