30 before 30 update #26 — Hogwarts Moments

#29. Throw a themed dinner party

This Halloween, there was only one option: a Deathly Hallows’ Eve!

The invitation:

HOGWARTS SCHOOL of WITCHCRAFT and WIZARDRY

Headmaster: Gudulrica Oakwood

(Order of Merlin, First Class)
Dear Mr/Ms X,

We are pleased to inform you that you have been cordially invited to The Deathly Hallows’ Eve Feast. Please find full specifications below, along with a list of all necessary equipment.

The Feast shall take place at Oakwood Manor, [home address], Landen (look for the pumpkin Portkey) on Friday 31st October at 18.00.

The evening’s entertainment shall consist of a tour of Oakwood Manor, followed by a magical cocktail round and three-course dinner, plus a screening of The Daily Prophet’s re-enactment of the Second Wizarding War (Parts I & II).

All guests will require:

  1. One costume in honour of a famous/infamous witch or wizard
  2. One empty stomach
  3. One set of interesting magical/Muggle conversation starters

Guests may also bring, if they desire, a contribution to the Department of Magical Drinks and Desserts.

Yours sincerely,

Daionus McPenguorus

Deputy Headmaster

Our menu consisted of:

I. A Nefarious Nibble: Dragon Eggs
II. A Scrumptious Starter: Severus Snape’s Sweet Potato Soup (served in a huge pumpkin, of course!)
III. A Most Disturbing Main Course: Dragon Blood Roast or Ravenclaw Risotto & Voldemort’s Vegetables + Potter’s Potatoes
IV. Devilish Desserts (Cauldron Cakes, Golden Snitches, Sorting Hat Treats, Acid Pops, Kettle Corn, Mad-Eye Balls and Fizzing Whizbees)
