Remember this magical Harry Potter home decor from reader Jasper Price and his wife Angie? We could only imagine how extra festive it got around the holidays at Chez Hogwarts. We don’t have to imagine anymore — Jasper shared with us their fantastical collection of mystical Christmas enchantment! Here’s what they had to say about their efforts to recreate the spectacle. Just watch out for the house elves sending up the feast…
It’s the most magical time of the year with the return of our Wizarding World Christmas tree. Angie Cason and I have been collecting Harry Potter ornaments since 2000 — or rather Angie has been collecting that long, I just joined the festivities with our first Harry Potter tree as a couple back in 2003. Since that first tree, we’ve amped up the display.
Angie’s cousin Adam Upshaw Klocke suggested the Sorting Hat as the tree topper while helping us decorate some years ago, house scarves became our tree garland (we did a last-minute sub out of our normal ones for a brighter set this year), we added the prop replicas I made including the Monster Book of Monsters and Quidditch case.
The living room itself has garnered more Hogwarts decor than in previous years… as has the rest of the house (we’re waiting on our Christmas gift, the Great Hall bed from Pottery Barn Teen, to come in any day now). Every year we forget to take individual photographs of every ornament and prop replica on the tree, and then the ornaments just become so hidden it’s hard to get to them all. And every year I tell Angie, in my best Chief Brody impersonation from JAWS, “You’re gonna need a bigger tree.” Maybe next year we’ll try the Engorgio spell for that.
GAH it’s so fun. Let’s get to the details. We’re only sharing a few of the shots, so definitely head over to the Facebook gallery to see the rest and tons of details of their ornaments in particular…
