They say the Devil’s in the details, and with our Hogwarts Alumni Dinner, we found that it was the magic in the details instead! A Harry Potter party turns out to be the perfect vessel to showcase lots of magical details. When planning an immersive theme party, the broad strokes set the stage. We’ve already done a post on transforming our home into Hogwarts – but it’s the little things that really deliver on making the party personal and enchanting for the guests. Party guests just love spotting easter eggs and all of the small things you do that aren’t necessarily the center of attention.

Centerpieces are an essential part of decor when throwing any style of dinner party, especially when the party happens to take place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Lucky for you, the ladies of Damn Good Shindig have the perfect centerpiece idea to bring a little magic into your dinner party.
