“The ceiling and walls had been draped with emerald, crimson and gold hangings, so that it looked as though they were all inside a vast tent. The room was crowded and stuffy and bathed in the red light cast by an ornate golden lamp dangling from the centre of the ceiling in which real fairies were fluttering, each a brilliant speck of light. Loud singing accompanied by what sounded like mandolins issued from a distant corner; a haze of pipe smoke hung over several elderly warlocks deep in conversation, and a number of house-elves were negotiating their way squeakily through the forest of knees, obscured by the heavy silver platters of food they were bearing, so that they looked like little roving tables.”
~ Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince


A Christmas party was hosted by Professor Horace Slughorn on the evening of 20 December, 1996 for the Slug Clug, a group of his favourite students, their dates, former club members, and various other associates.

To the party, I would take my silver gem purse and a box of chocolates as the dessert. I would be the most excited about seeing my friends, of course, and together, dancing along with the music playing. I would expect to see all types of wizarding meals: a HUGE turkey and as in very very big, butterbeer, pumpkin fizz, pumpkin pasties, and my favorite, Hogwarts pudding pie ~

I would definitely take @xeneixian and @hpfanextrm with me to have optimal amount of fun. I think I would be most excited about the decorations. I'm obsessed with decorations in real life. 😂 I would expect really fancy food. Sooo not chicken nuggets.

I would take some of prof slughorns favorite pineapple candy. I would be most excited about being included at all, since I am not anyone special. I would expect the dragon tartare and lots of sweets

I would take a silver platter full of homemade chocolate truffles as my contribution to the fare. I would choose Fred and George Weasley as my companions, because they can always be counted on to liven up the stodgiest party. I would hope to see copious amounts of butterbeer, oak matured mead, and marvelous and exotic finger foods - anything but Dragon Tartare - served at the party. I'd be most excited to meet new people...it seems Slughorn has a penchant for all kinds of "celebrities", from sports stars to vampires.

I would take @Dragonian to be my companion, we have been friends in R/L for twenty years and I know that we would both enjoy the party atmosphere and people watching during the evening. As to what I would take it would be a small handmade gift or card that I have made to commemorate the event and during the evening I would distribute them to the host and the other party goers as a small remembrance of the event.

I think I would be most excited about speculating who the other guests might be and what sort of interesting people would be there.

I think the food would be quite traditional but the very best that Professor Slughorn can obtain through his many contacts. So everything would taste much richer and more opulent than I would expect. The most succulent mince pies and sausage rolls, the crispiest of vegetables and the most beautifully creamy dips and finest cheeses and crackers that melt in the mouth. Of course knowing the professors liking of Crystallized Pineapple I would imagine the centre piece would be a whole pineapple that has been crystallized and when sliced into would reveal a beautifully creamy centre with crushed raspberries and white and dark chocolate chunks in it.

I know I’d take a coat, gloves, and a white elephant gift. There would tons of different candies, as well as yummy holiday foods and drinks. Like hot coco with marshmallows and warm apple cider, it all sound great. And don’t forget holiday themed and flavored deserts, like gingerbread, and other yummy treats. I couldn’t wait on playing fun games or playing in the snow, and having snowball fights.

To the party I would bring my wife, as she is witty and a pleasant conversationalist. At the party, I would be excited to meet new people and learn of their talents, and consider the possibility of building further my network of contacts and acquaintances. As for foodstuffs, I am open to virtually all possibilities. Preferably finger foods, with "adult beverages" available if desired.

I am still quite new, so I don't know many people well, so I would probably take @CustardApple, as I have spoken the most to them. I would be most interested in meeting all of his guests. I love meeting new people, especially with different life experiences. I would think that there would be the traditional foods there, including turkey, a roast red meat of some kind (probably beef). Of course there would be crystallized pineapple found somewhere on the table.

I would definitely bring some crystalized pineapple for Professor Slughorn, and bring my little sister so that she can have some fun! I would most likely be excited to see what famous people would be attending the party. And knowing my me and my sister, we would probably be crowded around the pastries and deserts😋.

I would bring my sister, definitely. I think she would have fun, and be interested in everything going on. Honestly, I'd be most excited about the food, and I think she would too. We love food... a lot! I hope they'd have a lot of sweets too, especially fudge!

If I went to this party i would be over the moon. Assuming my brother was already part of the Slug Club, I would bring a date or my friends. If Cedric Diggory was alive he would accompany me, if not then Dean Thomas. Other options would be my best friend. I would be excited to meet new people and try all the food. Pies, cakes. brownies, and fudge would be my favorite sweets. It would be nice to attend the party since I have never been to a big party, just small birthdays and such. I would try to talk to the house elves since I would be curious about their personalities. By the end, I bet I would have found the quietest corner of the party to chat with my closest friends at the party because we would have been exhausted but enlightened from the festive party.

It would be an honor and a dream come true to go to Slughorn's christmas party, cause these things only happen once in a life time event to go to. Now if i was invited I would take Draco Malfoy with me, and I know what your thinking Draco really? Yes vecause he seems sad and pissed off, so maybe some fun at a party would cheer him up. As for what I would be excited for, the dancing, laughter, and a good tim all around with my fellow class mates. Now for food, I would love to see sweets galore and just other foods such as turkey, mac and cheese and other wizarding foods.

To the party, I'd take all of my best friends. I'd be most excited about meeting new people and eating lots of food. I expect I'd probably see pumpkin juice or pasties, chocolate frogs, Christmas every flavor beans, possibly pumpkin pie, butterbeer, and maybe even a Christmas turkey.

Pretend you are attending this party. In three sentences or more, tell us what who would you take with you, what would you be most excited about, and what kind of food would you expect to see at this party.

If I could find a good friend to take as a date, I'd take them. If no one was willing, then I'd probably just bring a couple of my other friends. I'd be excited to see anything and everything. It'd be cool to see everyone's different party clothes, as well as whatever food and refreshments Slughorn conjured up. Or more likely, whatever he got from the house elves! Among all the dishes, I expect to see something fancy or exotic, along with the popular, typical wizarding world foods. Butterbeer, pumpkin pasties and such. Perhaps even Firewhiskey! Whatever happened, I would absolutely enjoy myself.

I would go to the party with a group of friends, as I don't really do the whole "going with a date" thing. In many ways I think it is more fun to go with a group as there is no pressure and you can just relax. I would take a gift for Slughorn, some crystallised pineapple or a bottle of mulled mead, something he would like.
I would look forward to meeting the wide variety of people that would attend the party, knowing Slughorn there will be people with really interesting stories. And the food. Oh the food. I bet there will be such variety of fancy food. I'm hungry just thinking about it.

To be invited to the Slughorn Christmas party is quite an honor. I would take all my HEX friends and a box of crystallised pineapple for the professor. I can just imagine the room decorated with all sorts of yule decor. The food table will be exquisite, I'm sure, and I will be excited to try each one (as long as I know what it is).

I am so excited for Professor Slughorn's party! I am taking @Slitherpuffclawdor, just as friends, and hope we'll see some of our favorite bands and authors. I also overheard that the captain of the Holyhead Harpies will be there! Wouldn't it be awesome to meet her? As for the food, I expect that there will be a wild variety of food to chose from. Maybe turkey and corned beef? As long as there is plenty of desert I wont go to bed hungry! Oh my goodness, I simply cannot wait!
