It’s almost as good as dining in the Great Hall of Hogwarts. Harry Potter fans were treated to a magical partnership this fall with the beloved franchise to produce a line of Hogwarts House-themed aprons and spatulas. Now, the franchise has partnered again (this time with Thinkgeek) to bring the Sorting Hat to your homes.
The company has released an exclusive, 16-piece, Harry Potter-theme dinner pack for only $100, which could be a unique new additi particularly for the legions of Potterfans who’ve read the books, identified with a House, and want to bring the magic into their dining rooms.
Each set includes gold-rimmed-and-white dinner plates, along with matching salad dishes, bowls and cups. The designs are specific to the four Hogwarts Houses (as a refresher: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw), and include direct quotes from the Sorting Hat. For example, “You might belong in Gryffindor. Where dwell the brave at heart. Their daring, nerve and chivalry. Set Gryffindors apart.”
“Dinnerware is an investment, and it says a lot about who you are,” the description reads on the product site. “You might inherit a family set from your grandparents. You pick out a china pattern together when you get married (whether or not it’s actual china). And if it’s an investment that says so much about you, maybe it should say more about you than acanthus leaves and Greek key patterns do?”
