Christmas Vacation Eggless Eggnog

Christmas Vacation is one of our favorite Christmas movies, it’s one of the first we watch each year. I’ve always loved the scene with Clark and Eddie talking over eggnog with the moose mugs. I enjoy eggnog but have never been brave enough to make […]

How To Throw a Harry Potter Hogwarts Tea Party

How To Throw a Harry Potter Hogwarts Tea Party

Here’s a quick checklist to show How To Throw a Harry Potter Hogwarts Tea Party in your own home.

1. Invite three of your friends. Have them get sorted into their Hogwarts house at Pottermore before they arrive.

I have been sorted into Slytherin! Remember, not all Slytherin are evil, Merlin is a Slytherin and he’s the greatest wizard of all time. Slytherin traits include “Cunning, ambitious, resourceful, shrewd, determined”. I actually really enjoy this as my house, it’s a bit unexpected!

2. Print your menu.

3. Display your menu with pride in a nice frame near your dining table. This one would be perfect!

4. Print the recipes for the tea party and create your shopping list. See this resource page for lots of suggestions on what to include in your planning. 

5. The day before, make as much of the menu items as you can ahead of time. Each recipe includes what portion of the recipe can easily be made the day before to reduce the time it takes to prepare the day of the party.

6. Set your table and have fun with the Hogwarts houses. If you can, set each person’s place setting based on their Hogwarts house. 

7. The day of the tea party, prepare the remainder of your recipes, brew up a fabulous cup of tea, queue up your music to set the mood of Hogwarts and enjoy! 

I’ve created a collection of Honeydukes inspired teas at Adagio. I recommend Pumpkin Juice Tea for this party, but any of them would be a wonderful choice. 

Be sure to reference our Harry Potter Hogwarts Tea Party page for details and resources you can use to easily create this party!
