I love Harry Potter as much as the next guy, I’ve read all the books, seen all the movies and been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. But no one, NO ONE, loves Harry Potter as much as my friend Lindsy. She can find a way to bring a spell, character or Hogwarts anecdote into any conversation. I ended up being the one to host the baby shower for her second son so I had to do a Harry Potter baby shower. It took a little bit of creativity, some research and help from friends to make what I thought was an epic baby shower!
I started by asking everyone who was attending to wear their house colours (ie. blue and gold for Ravenclaw, silver and green for Slytherin, black and yellow for Hufflepuff and or course scarlet and gold for Gryffindor), it was a good way to get people in the Potter mood!
Rowena Ravenclaw, Helga Hufflepuff, Godric Gryffindor and the boy who lived!
A hugely important part of the shower was the food, so many treats! It had to obviously be all Potter related, whether that meant inspired by or directly from the wizarding world.

Once the food was all decided on I needed to have lots of Hogwarts and Harry Potter themed decor.

We made a bunch of these posters with pictures of the guests as babies, and Lindsy had to guess who each one was, thanks to Erin for all her hard work on these! I also made up a Harry Potter quiz of 20 questions Lindsy had to answer before getting to open any gifts. We also played that game where you hum a song and the group has to guess it. All the songs either had the word “baby” in the title or were songs you could make babies to! For example Marvin Gaye’s Let’s Get it On!
It was fun to get creative with this shower, I love a good theme party and I think Lindsy had a lot of fun, and her new baby definitely got spoiled!

I hope you had a great time Lindsy, can’t wait until your boys get their acceptance letters from Hogwarts!
