The costumes were amazing, the fire was awesome and the rain held off! Our Harry Potter party was filled with so many wonderful costumes this year. Everyone from Harry himself to Severus Snape was represented in fine form.
As the guests arrived they were greeted by Professor McGonagall at the door with a signature cocktail.
They were then "sorted" with the Sorting Hat and put in one of the four houses of the school, Hufflepuff, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Griffindore.
The Fat Portrait Lady seems happy with her assigned school!
Hagrid not so much.
A dinner of Chili and cornbread was served at long tables on the patio. Each table had it's school banner hanging above it, as well as floating pumpkins and candles. A roaring fire kept everyone warm.
