Our Hogsmeade Village included: The Three Broomsticks, Honeydukes, Ollivander's wand shop, and potions supplies shop. Everyone received a bag of coins to buy their supplies for the night. We "charged" for the wands, potion supplies, butterbeer, pumpkin juice and candy from Honeydukes. We had a muggle favorite for dinner, Pizza!
We covered the walls with the wood-paneled paper and hung up Harry Potter posters, wanted posters and store advertisements.
Bought: Wood Panel paper - Shindigz Candle stick holders - thrift shop Posters - Hogwarts Train, Godric's Hollow, 422nd Quidditch Match Black gift bags for potion supplies.

I used A Crafty Chick blog's tutorial on making the wand boxes. I was making 32 boxes and didn't want to use fabric, so I covered the inside with colored constructions paper and filled the boxes with colored tissue paper.
Advanced Potion Making Booklets
I found the Advanced Potion Making book cover and the first few pages of the book on the internet. I then created recipes for the kids to use to make their potions for potion class. I glued the book cover to construction paper to give it more heft and printed the inside pages on antique style paper. My husband bound the books for me.
