Harry Potter Mystery Dinner Party Invitations

For the Harry Potter Mystery Dinner Party I had two rounds of invitations.

The first set, was delivered as an Owl Post invitation.  
This invite was general, inviting them to a Murder Mystery Dinner with the Date and Time and asking for a quick RSVP.

Then once I received their RSVP they were sent an official Murder Mystery Dinner Invitation.
This had their new "Identity", or character,  for the party.  
It also instructed them on their part, costume suggestions, and where to find more information about their role.
Inside this invitation was an Insert with instructions on their arrival, a Hogwarts Express Ticket, Polyjuice Potion, and some Fingernail Clippings or Ear Wax of the Identity/Character they were to become.

Here are the Printable Invitations & Instructions.

  1. Thanks for these amazing resources! I have a question. I am trying to put my own information for my party on the first invitations but nothing will let me edit them. Any ideas on how to do that?

    1. The invitations are saved as a JPEG file, so you need to use a computer program that allows you to open the picture then add text over it. That is the easiest way. But I have had a few tell me that they don't have a computer program that does that, so they have also just printed the invitation blank, then created the text in Microsoft Word or in Pages, and put the printed page back through their printer to print the text portion on top of it.

      I hope either of those ideas helps you. (You can also look online for free programs to download that will allow you to edit the picture and add text...if you don't have any currently)


  2. Your awesome! Thanks soo much for sharing these resources and printables. I am doing a Harry Potter party for my daughters 11th birthday. I am a full time student(17 units), I work, and have a 4 year old, so I have little time to pull off this party that my daughter has been dreaming of all summer. You provided things I have spend hours trying to find. THANKS so much from a mom that can use all the help possible.

  3. The second paragraph of the character invitations seems to have a typo "at had", instead of "at hand" maybe? Can you correct this?

  4. Love your great ideas! Can you tell me which two scripts are used on the mystery dinner invitation?

  5. I am trying to print out the Platform 9 3/4 tickets, but am having a hard time finding them on the site. Could you please link the URL? Thanks!

  6. When I download it won't let me make any changes. Please help!

  7. what do you use for fingernail clippings, earwax and polyjuice potion?

  8. It only downloads as a PDF - do you have a Word Document?
