A Baby Shower at Hogwarts!

8 months ago some friends and I planned the most Hogwarts-like Baby Shower for Mandy and Lily that we could. You might not know this, but Mandy read the Harry Potter series to Lily while in utero, then, when Lil was topside, Mandy started again. Mandy’s love of Hogwarts and Harry Potter is a strong one, so of course, without question, that would be the theme of her shower.

We researched for months, amassing a pinterest board  (all printables are pinned in our pinterest board, if you’re wanting to throw a Hogwarts Baby Shower yourself, check it out) collected links, paper and hot glue and then began crafting.

A warning, this will be a photo heavy post…

 

Harry Potter Onesies DIY
First, I had to make Lily’s outfit. Being that she is a baby, and babies are the messiest creatures alive, she had to have back ups. I made these with Avery T-Shirt Printer Paper from Staples.

Overall, it was a large amount of work to throw this party, but we had so much fun doing it and, the best part, there was days worth of candy left over from it.
