My eldest has a harry potter themed bday for his 6th.
All the guests had witches hats, I bought a lot of halloween decorations which worked really well and was cheap.
For games we had pin the wand on harry, floating doughnuts (doughnuts tied with fishing wire, the kids had to eat them without using their hands) and a snitch pinata.
I thought about getting a magician but left it too late.

If you google Harry Potter parties you will find heaps of ideas as there are a lot of blogs where people have done HP parties.

We were thinking of doing one for my DD but now she wants an outdoor movie party.  We are going to do:
Paint an old sheet to look like bricks and put a slit in it at the entrance so they can run through like platform 9 3/4
Sorting hat - put a some sort of ipod or MP3 inside it with pre-recorded decisions for which house they will be in (or you could have this secretly in your pocket)
Wands - kids pick a wand (piece of dowel) and decorate it at start of party
Quidditch - pool noodles to act as goals.  Teams trying to get the ball through the goals while one person from each team searches the area for the golden snitch (yellow ball hidden)

I did a HP party for my eldest boy who turned 5 this year.  I got these fab invites off etsy and printed them off at home on the printer.  Everyone said how great they were and they were really cheap to do.

We had the party at a mini railway so the tickets tied in with the theme.

For the party bags, I got wizard glasses, chocolate frogs from Haighs and made a frog card with my son's face on it to go with the choc frog.  I melted down crayons and molded them into an owl shape attached them to a small notepad.  You can buy them already done though from etsy.  Lastly I put a handful of jelly beans into a pouch.

I also had a fab cake made of a spell book with wizards hat.

You can also find some party kits on ebay.

My DD had a HP party for her 10th last year. She is obsessed. Etsy had some great downloadable printables. We had Chocolate Frog boxes complete with Wizarding Cards (they were fun to fold!), signs for Platform 9 3/4 (I made the brick wall out of calico  & stamped the bricks with a car sponge, cut it down the centre & hung it at the entrance) & Honeydukes Lollyshop for the lolly buffet (licorice wands, Golden Snitches - Ferrero Rochers with translucent wings made from laminate offcuts, Warhead lollipops for Acid Pops, Red Clouds for Fizzing Wizzbees, Lemon Sherbets, Sour worms for Jelly Slugs). Invitations were home made with a free downloaded Harry Potter font on parchment coloured paper in the form of their Hogwart's letter  & including their Hogwarts Express ticket (also downloaded off Etsy). I also printed the Hogwarts & House crests, backed them with black cardboard & put them around the house. Balloons were in House colour bunches. I made Butterbeer from brown creaming soda & icecream. It was a lot of work but because I did it all myself it wasn't very expensive. It was great fun.
