Hogwarts Party Decorations page 3

It was lit by thousands and thousands of candles that were floating in midair over four long tables, where the rest of the students were sitting. These tables were laid with glitter golden plates and goblets...

Great Hall Party Feast Area
We set up the dining area on our back patio.  Try to get or borrow long tables, even picnic tables would work well.  I had to put one long table and one round table together, but I still lined them up to create a banquet hall feeling.   Food was served on silver trays.  All of this stuff can be gotten at a party supply store or a Smart and Final if you're lucky enough to have one in your area.

My supply list:
  • Purple plastic tablecovers
  • Clear Christmas icicle lights hanging over the area
  • Gold stars, hanging over the area
  • Gold/silver moon and stars confetti, sprinkled on the tables
  • Gold paper plates, napkins, plastic forks and spoons
  • Plastic goblets (champagne glasses); I spray painted the bases gold
  • Couple of silver serving trays

Add some background music from the Harry Potter movie soundtracks and let the feast begin!
