21 Magical Harry Potter Party Ideas for only Wizards and Witches

Themed birthday parties are all the rage and it’s easier than ever to choose a theme and throw a party that is great fun, inexpensive and creative.  Harry Potter parties are very popular with kids of all ages, and not surprisingly, with adults too.  You can pretty much plan every aspect of your Harry Potter birthday party with all the information you find online, starting with the invitation and ending off with the party pack.

You can do a general Harry Potter party, i.e. include all the main characters, or you can go with a Marauder theme.  The Marauders were a group of Gryffindors – Lupin, Pettigrew, Sirius Black and Potter – who broke all the rules but died along the way.  They’d attended Hogwarts, created the Marauder’s Map and helped future generations of mischief makers.

The Marauder’s are real heroes in the Harry Potter books and in the eyes of all the readers, and so a Marauder’s theme is always a huge hit.
