Diagon Alley-Madame Malkin's Robes & Potage's Cauldron Shop

After visiting Gringotts Wizarding Bank we moved on to Madame Malkin's Robes.  This is where Hogwarts students get their uniforms for school.

I printed off the sign from PropPrintables and mounted it to foam core.  Then I grabbed an old cedar trunk that I have had since college and made that our Madame Malkins.

With possibly 10 or more kids coming I didn’t want to blow the budget on robes.  I also didn't want to spend a whole lot of time making them either.  I went to JoAnn's and purchased Men's L and XL plain, black t-shirts when they were on sale 3 for $9.  It was so easy.  All I did was cut them in the front, right up the middle.  They fit the girls perfectly.

Bug-A-Boo was Hermione for Halloween last year so she just wore her own robe.

Next stop...Potage's Cauldron Shop.

I knew that the girls would be receiving a lot of things to use during the party as well as to take home so I wanted to make sure they had something to carry it all in.  I thought a cauldron would be perfect. I found 8" cauldrons with handles at and they were only $2.04 each.  The only catch was that in order to make an order at the website you had to spend at least $45.00.  It is a party supply site so I figured I would be able to do that and I found some great stuff that we will introduce later in the party.

After getting the cauldrons I printed out the sign and mounted it to foam core and found a small table to display the cauldrons.

The girls were so excited to get their cauldron's.

Next shop...Ollivander's Wands.
