Party Recap

My daughter turned 17 in November, as we started renovations few weeks before and she had just been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, we couldn't decently hold a birthday party at this time.But I promised she would have a fantastic New Year's Eve Party.2011 for the year when the last opus of Harry Potter was on the screens. A huge part of my daughter's childhood was suddenly ending. But she doesn't want to leave childhood and was lucky enough to be part of the Pottermore Beta group. The online sorting hat put her in the Slytherin House. That was it! I decided the party would be a dress up party , it's more fun, and the dessert table would be Slytherin themed. I started in november to order some official merchandise online as Christmas gifts for Clémence. I planned to create printables and labels, but for this part I run out of time, as the renovations are still not finished! So I just printed out some free printables online. For the dessert table, I baked night and day for 3 days, leaving the boxes to unpack and the house to organise for 2012. The guests were between 40 to 50 teenagers of 16 to 18 years old. They arrived earlier than scheduled, because the roads were closing for New Year celebrations, so I had to organise the table in front of them , in 10 minutes, get changed, put a little bit of make up and take some photos before they mess up everything.
The biggest surprise was that on the day I create a savoury macaron recipe ( goat cheese-basil), so delicious that I secretly hoped they wouldn't like it so we could have plenty of left overs, and actually it is what they preferred.
