'Harry Potter'-Themed Surprise Party Is Every Muggle's Dream
This birthday girl's friends are cooler than Ron and Hermione, and I don't care who knows it.
Liz Edmonds shared photos from her "Harry Potter"-themed surprise party on Imgur, and Holy Dumbledore, it's the most on-point recreation of the Wizarding World I've seen since I went to Universal Orlando and literally took pictures next to audio animatronic goblins for 30 minutes.
Her friends in Germany surprised her before she traveled back to the US. Liz said,
I've never had a surprise birthday party, let alone a Harry Potter themed party. 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! I cried. A lot. I can't believe they did this all for me. They truly are my family away from home.
Liz's party was very similar to this "Harry Potter"-themed birthday, but while the previous celebrations earned an Exceeds Expectations score, this shindig was Outstanding.
Are you ready to witness the magic? BECAUSE THESE DECORATIONS ARE FUCKING RIDDIKULUS.
Check out this impromptu Great Hall, complete with floating candles and the Houses of Hogwarts. GO GRYFFINDOR! Alright, fine... I'm actually a Hufflepuff.
Don't you just want to slam head first into Platform 9 and 3/4 with a shopping cart? Well, now you can!
Liz was finally accepted into Hogwarts. Meanwhile, I have finally accepted I am a Muggle.
Who needs that old geezer Ollivander when you have this cool sign?
DANG, THIS SEEKER CAUGHT THE SNITCH, WHICH BASICALLY MEANS A WIN IN QUIDDITCH! And prison. If you catch the snitch in prison, you win, too. So I've heard.
I don't think I could conscionably eat a sentient chocolate frog. I'd free them "E.T."-style.
Look at that Floo powder! Floo powder is a pretty messy way to travel, just like taking an Uber drunk at 3 am.
Aragog is low-key waiting for the right time to strike, spin you up into his web and feed his many hungry children.
Her friend actually made this Sorting Hat cake. I don't think I would even eat this, it's that perfect.
Nothing like Liquid Luck to get you through your morning/breakup/any day of the week that isn't Saturday or Sunday.
Holy shit, put on your earmuffs! It's a baby Mandrake... or Groot?
Shut. The. Dumbledore. They even made her a Honeydukes store? ALAS EARWAX.
Please tell me they had Butterbeer.
I mean, technically it should read "Enemies of the heir beware" at the bottom, but I let it slide. Bonus points if Moaning Myrtle is hiding somewhere in the toilet.
Liz is going straight to Azkaban.
