This past weekend, I had the pleasure of planning and hosting a Harry Potter party for my niece's 13th birthday.
I have been a devoted fan of J.K. Rowling's magical series since I was in eighth grade. I was even that girl that went to midnight book release parties and movie premieres (which I then left feeling cheated because the film left out key points. Anyone remember when Harry broke the elder wand without fixing his own first? Yeah, that one still gets me.)
Due to my love of the novels, I convinced my niece to start reading the books this year. She fell in love as I knew she would and asked me to help her plan a party themed around Harry's world. I was more than willing to help.

In college, I stayed in hostels, ate strange foods and slept in trains when I traveled to the Netherlands, Germany and France by myself.
