Erika’s Harry Potter 30th Birthday: Part 2 - Decorations
Decorating my house was really time consuming, but also a lot of fun. I hung several winged keys and birdcages from the ceiling and tried to dress up as much of my house without completely tearing down things that were already there. All the papers on the wall were tea-stained by hand and I made the Monster Book of Monsters from scratch from a USPS flat rate box. When you walk into the house, you are at Platform 9 ¾ and get a personalized Hogwarts acceptance letter (also tea-stained) in a hand-made envelope. As you walk through the hallway, there are several posters and signs that lead you to the living room. By the day of the party, I was so tired and exhausted, my eyes look so strained and tired in all the photos of me. Haha.
