Our youngest daughter was married recently and I was in charge of her bridal shower. I asked her if she wanted a regular no-theme bridal shower or a themed shower. She said, “no theme”. I went with that until I thought she loves Harry Potter. I wonder if she would want that theme. I asked her about the Harry Potter Bridal Shower theme and she said, YES, YES, YES!!! She hadn’t even thought of it. This is one of my daughters favorite book series so planning a wizardly bridal shower, complete with Harry Potter-inspired food, sweets, decorations, invitations, party favors, and music made it all perfect. I like doing themed parties. It is an easy way to come up with ideas for decorations, food, invitations, etc.
Is your bride to be a Harry Potter fanatic? This Harry Potter themed bridal shower will make her “Muggle to Mrs.” dreams come true!
Some favorites of the party – treats from the “Honeydukes” sweet shop were sampled by our guests. The Three Broomsticks featured good food, and Butterbeer along with some tasty Butterbeer cupcakes straight from Hogwarts. Edible golden snitch party favors were displayed with the Quidditch centerpieces. The King’s Cross Platform 9 3/4, Hogwarts floating candles and the portrait wall rounded up a fun bridal shower.
Guests could taste and try to guess the delicious (and some creepy flavors, earwax, rotten egg, or dirt jellybeans, anyone?) flavors of Bertie Botts Beans.
There are tons of pictures for this party so I decided to break it down into 7 different posts.

You will love the idea of using a brick shower curtain as the entrance to the Platform 9 3/4 or having a custom Platform 9 3/4 made.
I loved these custom Daily Prophet Newspaper. I ordered them from this Etsy shop. Upload your favorite picture of the soon-to-be married couple and the wording you want and then receive a PDF to print on your own.
