It’s the first week of September! I love Fall and I am extremely excited for crisp weather, warm drinks, and Football. However, September started a bit differently this year.
First, a bachelorette party fit for a Slytherin. We headed to the Finger Lakes in New York to celebrate one of my favorite ladies impending nuptials. With largely the same crew on hand who celebrated Friendsgiving you know this theme was on point. Hogwarts Houses were used to determine teams and goodie bags. The highlight of the trip was our wine tour. We wore tanks with different HP quotes. If you find yourself in the Finger Lakes make sure to check out Shaw Winery, Starkey’s Lookout, Miles Wine Cellars, and Fox Run Vineyards.
After an incredible weekend I returned home for more themed fun. My lovely boyfriend had planned a night of movies and drink pairings in honor of the start of term at Hogwarts. We watched movies one and three and had felix felicis, unicorn blood, and butter beer. The felix was my favorite. Prosecco and ginger beer work well together. We used these recipes with only some minor changes. Please excuse the pictures, we were excited. They are not the best.
Gearing up for our trip to Orlando in a few weeks to celebrate Dan’s 30th at Harry Potter world. This past weekend was an excellent jumping off point. Have you had a Harry Potter Weekend? Let me know!
