With only a few weekend left before Halloween, it's time to pick which parties will make your calendar.  So what are the essentials for a spectacular Halloween party? A unique, one of a kind venue? Creative cocktails and delicious food? A killer costume theme? If those things are the top of your list, AND you happen to be Harry Potter fan, it looks like you should be at Blantyre Resort next Saturday, Oct. 27.

The iconic Blantyre Resort, one of the few Guilded Age mansions in The Berkshires, is opening it's door to the public for the first time in recent memory for a pretty epic occasion, a Harry Potter Halloween Party.  

One of world's most legendary resort destinations located on 110 scenic acres in Lenox, will welcome guests to a Harry Potter inspired Halloween party for adults Saturday, Oct. 27 from 7:30 to 11:30, complete with costumes, butter beer an other creative cocktails, live entertainment and inspired food stations to transport guests into J. K. Rowling’s beloved world of witchcraft and wizardry. 

As if the ambiance of a guilded age mansion isn't already the perfect backdrop for this event, the soundtrack was actually conceived and written in the mansion by Berkshire County regular and award winning composer John Williams. Party guests can experience the historic Manor House, which features the Main Hall, the Music Room, the Conservatory and Bistro and more.

So grab your Quidditch balls and wizard caps (sorry, that's really the only thing I know about Harry Potter) and have some fun!
