Harry Potter MOTW {2}: Most Beautiful Spot in the Series

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme created by Leah of Uncorked Thoughts.

This week's topic: Most Beautiful Spot in the Series

My Choice: The Great Hall
The Great Hall at Hogwarts is one of my absolute favorite settings in the series. I love how in the earlier movies the Great Hall is always looks so warm and inviting with all of that bright, golden light. In the books, I always loved it when J.K. Rowling would describe the feasts in the Great Hall; as a kid, I wanted to leap through the pages and be there so I could join in on the delicious feast. (Hmm, food seems to be becoming a theme in these MOTW posts...).

The dorm I lived in in college had a dining hall that looked very similar to the Great Hall. Every year in November our dorm would have "Hogwarts Week," an entire week dedicated to all different kinds of HP-related activities. For the week, candles were hung from the ceiling outside the dining hall with fishing wire, so it looked like we had our own "floating" candles! The dining hall itself was decorated with Hogwarts house banners. Instead of Gryffindor or Slytherin, though, each banner had the names of the residence halls in our dormitory, along with an animal to represent each one. I don't think I could have picked a cooler (or nerdier) place to live. Needless to say, I stayed in this dorm all four years of college. :)

What is your favorite spot in Harry's world?


  1. I love Hogwarts and Great hall! I wanted to join in the feasts as well, that'd be amazing. I was always so hungry reading about them, and I always loved how it was brought to the screen. Gorgeous!

    And that's amazing about your school! Oh wow I'd love it so much! *jealous*

  2. That's so amazing about your college! That sounds like heaven :). The Great Hall is the most amazing of places. I'd love the chance to go there for real - not just as part of the Studio Tour!

  3. My favorite spot in Hogwarts is probably the Great Hall as well. It's gorgeous there! If I lived in a dorm with a dining hall like that, I'd probably stay there too. :D
