Yesterday was great day! We got back from camping, went to Tim's house to caulk and putty the crown molding, hurried and showered, and made our way to the Gateway to meet my sister and her husband to see Part II of Harry Potter. I was so excited about it! When those students hop on their brooms?!? Man! It's exciting! Seriously, when I think about Harry Potter, it's like every nerdy tendency inside of my body comes out to play. I want to dress up, draw lightning bolt scars on Tom's head, practice my spells...I almost booked tickets to Orlando to see the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
I didn't end up going to any of those extremes, but I did get a little crafty. I thought it would be fun to have some treats during the movie, so I did a little research on the interweb and got some ideas for what I could sneak into the theater. I cam up with a simple brown paper bag full of treats mentioned throughout the books/movies! Here's what I did:
Front of the bag:
Butterbeer: IBC cream soda (I wanted Thomas Kemper's Vanilla Cream, but the store didn't have it)
Golden Snitches: Gold Lindor Truffles (I wanted Ferre Roche's, but again the store did not provide)
Pumpkin Pasties: Pumpkin chocolate chip, soft-top cookies
Jelly Slugs: Gummy worms
Licorice Wands: Licorice
Cockroach Clusters: A mix of PoppyCock and Cracker Jacks
All the goodies!
They were fun to snack on during the show. More fun for me to make I think. If anyone wants the tags I made for each of the snacks let me know, I'll send you the pdf so you can print them. I had such a great time and I thought the movie was great! Of course, they left a few things out, but I thought they wrapped it up nicely. I want to watch it again!
