Historical Hogwarts party

My friend Chelsea hosted a Historical Hogwarts themed tea this October (busy month, seriously!). Janine, Conley, and I carpooled down to Williamsburg to make a long day trip of it.

Janine and Conley were Slytherin. As were most of the partygoers. The host was Hufflepuff. I was the lone Gryffindor at the party.

I repurposed a white regency dress with some Gryffindor striped clip-on bows I bought at the Kings Cross Gift shop. Plus red and gold sashes, my regency shawl that happens to match, red shoes, a wand, and my gorgeous suede witch hat, which was so heavy it pulled the wig off my head until I gave up and bewigged.

The party was lovely! She had a scavenger hunt for a list of Harry Potter-related things, and had hand-made lots of beautiful decorations!

The Slytherins all teamed up on the Gryffindor, but I came close to winning. :-)

These House cups actually worked! She made them!
