Harry Potter

Ok, this post is not about sweets at all, but I really wanted to share this with everyone. My Little Diva is turning fourteen, and she is a HUGE Harry Potter fan. So...for her upcoming birthday we secretly planned a weekend trip to Orlando to visit Universal Studios' Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
I made her an acceptance letter from Hogwarts and we rigged up a white snowy owl to "fly" downstairs on a fishing wire to deliver it to her.
                                        Here he is
                                         
                                      Coming in on a fishing wire

straight 

into her open arms :)

Here's the letter I made for her - with a Hogsmeade postage    

and a wax seal with an "H" for Hogswarts

and all the info she would need




She loved it. We leave Friday morning but I promise to take pictures of everything we see and eat at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It's gonna be awesome!

What an incredible way to ask her and surprise her. I think she will never forget her owl post. We went last October and just loved it and I have several posts about it and my imitation butterbeer and pumpkin juice. I just did a post on Butterbeer cupcakes - http://purplechocolathome.blogspot.com/2011/09/harry-potters-butterbeer-cupcakes.html
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! I actually came to tell you I saw your 3 Musketeers bar on pinterest and that it has been repinned something like 420 times! I am going to repin it too and try it soon. Sounds just like some Christmas candy we used to make! Yum. Come visit if you can this week. I am having a hammered copper pot giveaway from Williams Sonoma.
