In a world where ‘Harry Potter’ reigns supreme, it’s not uncommon to have a Harry Potter-themed birthday party. In fact, most 2000s kids have attended at least one party where fake glasses and scars were required. However, not all Wizarding World parties are created equal.
Imgurian n3rdychik might take the cake (poor pun intended) for the most intricate birthday party that even J.K. Rowling herself would envy. “I’ve never had a surprise birthday party, let alone a Harry Potter themed party,” she wrote. “I’m stationed in Germany and leaving to go back to the US 5 days before my birthday. My friends decided to throw me a birthday party before I leave, and the party they threw was so amazing!”
As any true ‘Harry Potter’ fans will see, “amazing” is actually an understatement.
Guests began by running through platform nine and three-quarters.
“I cried. A lot. I can’t believe they did this all for me. They truly are my family away from home,” she wrote.
We’d cry too… Check out the extravaganza.
Then they hopped on the Hogwarts Express.
The whole set up was pretty impressive.
There was even a sorting hat cake and golden snitch treats.
…All provided by Honeydukes, of course.
Wizarding world newspapers (and important HP quotes) were framed on the walls.
Not all the decorations were cutesy, though.
The Chamber of Secrets is no joke.
Guests came in costume.
…Some more sinister than others.
That had to have taken some time. Do they even make dark mark flash tats?
All we have to say is: A+ attention to detail.
J.K. Rowling would be proud.
Only question is: how will her friends top this next year?
