Last but not least was Honeydukes. Creating Honeyduke's was so much fun but it was probably the most work that was involved in this party.
|Honeydukes at Universal Studios Orlando|
For Honeydukes I cleared out the closet cove near the front door and put a 4 foot table in the cove and set up our shop. I decided on several types of candy from the books/movies and got to work figuring out how to recreate them.
The Jelly Slugs were gummy worms. I put them in a glass container and found a scoop, I found the artwork and attached it to the glass container.
For the Fizzing Whizbees I bought a bee chocolate mold from Amazon.com. I melted chocolate, put it in the molds and then poured Pop Rocks into the melted chocolate to give it the Fizz. I got some clear bags, printed out the artwork and bagged up the chocolate bees.
The Acid Pops were flavored suckers that I found on sale. I found the Acid Pop artwork online and made tags for the suckers.
The Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans were some of the more time involved favor. I found the artwork for the boxes online and to make it a little easier I got a picture of some jelly beans from the web and I photoshopped the jelly beans into the windows of the box. I printed them out on heavy cardstock an assembled them. The Jelly Beans themselves were yummy flavored Jelly Belly's.
The most time intensive project were the chocolate frogs. Again, I found a frog mold at Amazon.com and made the actual frogs. I found the artwork for the boxes online, printed them out on heavy cardstock and assembled them.
I was able to make the cards in Photoshop. I printed them on heavy cardstock, attached front to back and laminated them. I placed a frog and 1 card at the bottom of each box. It was fun for the girls to see which card they got.

Like I said this party was EPIC and believe it or not it didn't cost a fortune. I was able to make almost everything my self, either for free or really cheap. The biggest expense was ink for our printer.
