As mentioned in the first post, the location of an event can help tremendously the theme. Edinburgh reminds me of Hogwarts and Diagon Alley. If you love Harry Potter as much as I do, why not host your next event with a Harry Potter theme or in Edinburgh.
The opportunities are endless. I believe less is more when it comes to specific themes such as this one. By over doing the decoration, this can actually make the events look cheap and over the top. Fun ideas such as candy buffet with chocolate frogs, flavoured foams and jelly beans are a big crowd pleaser. Creative centrepieces; dedicating each table to a specific character or house works effectively. Colourful cocktails served in odd shaped vials is a must. Finally Harry Potter soundtrack to begin the reception to create the right environment for a full Harry Potter experience.
P.S. change the music just before dessert, this will entice the dancing queens to make their mark.
