Set the tone of the party ahead of time with authentic invitations that look like they came directly from Hogwarts!

What you’ll need: Parchment paper and envelopes in “natural," Hogwarts seal (found online), red sealing wax, seal stamp and calligraphy pen (optional)

Directions: Place the Hogwarts seal at the top of your invitation design, and the title “Hogwarts School of Witches and Wizardry” along the bottom. Add the party details, utilizing a clever language style inspired by the movie. For example: “We are pleased to inform you that you have been invited to a special birthday celebration in honor of new head boy/girl _____________. The festivities will commence at the stroke of noon.”

Tip: For extra authenticity, close the back of the envelopes with a red wax seal and use calligraphy for the mailing addresses.
