This magical Harry Potter Themed Baby Shower is out of this world!
The attention to detail at Theresa’s magical Harry Potter Baby Shower was incredible! From golden snitches to Hedwig owls, this shower included every fan’s favorite Harry Potter references. Guests entered into the Harry Potter Theme Baby Shower through none other than Platform 9 3/4 (a “brick wall” made from a shower curtain).
As guests arrived, they were invited to write a note on a diaper to cheer up the soon-to-be parents during late night diaper changes. Guests took their seats in the “Great Hall” at a table belonging to their House. If any guests weren’t sure what House they belonged to, cootie catchers on the tables would help them determine which House they should sit at.
The decor of the room was spot-on with floating candlesticks, color-coded tables, washcloth owls, potions, a Mandrake plant, flying keys, and a corsage for Theresa made out of actual Harry Potter book pages. With each House as a team, guests played games such as What’s In a Name, Baby Trivia, Count the Every Flavor Beans, and Baby Crossword (with a broomstick pen, of course).
The lunch buffet included delicious Harry Potter favorites made by Kirsten, Maj, Theresa, and Natalie, such as Howlers, Huffle Puffs, Deviled Dragon Eggs, Leaky Cauldron Pie, Gillyweed Salad, Pygmypuff Sorting Hats, and Professor Sprout’s Herbology Garden.
The next round of games included Guess the Baby Food, Accio, and Mom’s Measurements.
Desserts were served, including Ferrero Rocher Golden Snitches, tea and scones, Butterbeer, and chocolate frogs.
Theresa was showered with tons of great gifts for Baby Hendrie like a hand-crocheted Dobby hat, Harry Potter diaper cake, a Little Muggle Milestone Tapestry, lots of great Harry Potter onesies (made with a Cricut machine), books, and tons more.
Finally, the points for all the games were tallied up to determine the winning house, just like in the Harry Potter books and movies. The last activity was Pass the Prize, a poem to determine which guest at each table would get to take home the prize (which included a bottle of Butterbeer, a chocolate wand, and Every Flavor Beans). Before they left, guests were invited to take home a chocolate bar and a “potion” for their baths.
