lillian's 9 3/4's birthday was november 17th, and to paraphrase the immortal words of hagrid, "it's not every day your young lass turns 9 3/4!" a potter-themed party was definitely needed to celebrate.
the house decorations:
the last was a photobooth set up for people to pose and take pictures all night long... lots of silliness was found on that camera, but this one, of my goofball husband, is my favorite!
we had to have harry potter themed snacks as well...
lily made the broomsticks and snitches herself!
and what birthday party would be complete without a cake? "made it myself, words and all... i may have sat on it a bit."
everyone came in costumes:
from left to right we have: neville longbottom, hermoine granger, fleur delacour, harry potter, draco malfoy, luna lovegood, and ron weasley!
the grownups dressed up too:
again, from left to right: minerva mcgonogall, hagrid, professor sprout, bellatrix lestrange, madame hootch, albus dumbledoor, professor trelawney, rita skeeter, severus snape, and the minister of magic cornelius fudge.
everyone had so much fun! but especially lily, which made me especially happy!
