Harry Potter 7th Birthday Party

Hello fellow geeks!


We hope you are all doing well. Can you believe it's already been a week since our 7th birthday party? As always, we celebrate with a Harry Potter themed party with fancy dress, games and (obviously) cake! If you joined us we hope you had an amazing time - because we did! It was an awesome day and your outfits were epic as always. If you weren't able to join us this year, don't fret, because we are here to share a little bit from the day with you!


This year our party hosts were Professor McGonagall, death eater Bellatrix Lestrange and a 5'2" Rubeus Hagrid - because why not?

This year we introduced a new game for our Harry Potter shop party, Pin The Nose On Voldemort - because I think I'd really funny - and it was a huge hit! There was fun and laughter all day, which was so amazing to see and hear and so many of you won a golden egg. That may have been a bad idea, we had to be careful that our niffler didn't steal any!

We also held a raffle to win a wand. The winner was Benji and, after lots and lots and lots of deliberating, he chose Harry Potter's wand. Congratulations Benji! We hope it fits in well with your current wand collection.


Here's also a sneaky peek of our Pin The Nose On Voldemort game - very close, but he looks like he had an accident with a car door this time! Or maybe this was how he lost his nose in the first place?
