|Enter at Platform 9 3/4. The brick wall is just paint on butcher's paper. The broom is made of a tree branch and some dried naturals we got on sale at Hobby Lobby.|
|My lovely Platform 9 3/4 sign. It's a piece of scrap wood from Home Depot that I hand painted. I traced a bowl to get the circle and free-handed the numbers. I printed out and traced letters for the "Hogwarts Express" bit.|
|Another broom, and Harry Potter glasses ordered in bulk off Amazon|
|Font is actually called "Lumos" and I had a lot of fun burning the edges.|
|Twizzlers dipped in white chocolate.|
|Pretty much just mini pumpkin pies. These went quickly.|
|These were harder to make than I thought! They're brown paper lunch bags filled with Chex Mix and then secured with string and the most giant pretzel sticks I could find to look like broomsticks.|
|Holy crap, this stuff is strong. It's made with lots of brown sugar, butter, cream and cream soda. I could do a shot of it and that's about it. How Andrew Taylor chugged a whole cup is beyond me.|
|Cheap fabric from Hobby Lobby with iron on Decals (ironed on by Steph and Hans, with cutting credit to Parker).|
We also hung fake candles (15 small ones) from the ceiling in the living room, like the Great Hall. They flickered all night and it was pretty sweet (just hard to photograph).
