  • High Tea Time
    Every boy or girl deserves to be treated as a prince or princess on their birthday! Celebrate in true royal fashion with tea and sandwiches fit for a monarch. Guests will get to make fresh scones with a quick berry jam. For lunch, a medley of tea sandwiches that they can eat until their heart’s content.

    Make your birthday truly magical by apparating right into the kitchen of Mrs. Weasley. For lunch, we’ll be making her famous hand pies filled with Cornish chicken and fresh vegetables.
