Invite your guests to a Harry Potter themed birthday party with this Daily Prophet inspired Harry Potter birthday invitation!
NOTE: As with all of my printable birthday invitations, this one is available in my Etsy shop!
Last year for his 9th birthday we gave him the first Harry Potter book, and he has become completely obsessed with the entire wizarding world.
Big surprise, right?
I think everyone who reads the books and watches the movies does!
Even my 7 year old just finished the first book!
While looking for a fun idea for the invitation, I saw that most out there styled as letters from Hogwarts.
Which is fun, but a bit plain.
I thought a Daily Prophet inspired invite could be really fun, but I didn’t see any out there.
So I made one as our Harry Potter birthday invitation!
And I am OBSESSED with how it turned out!
The entire invitation is styled to look like the “real” Daily Prophet, right down to the fonts and wording.
The background of the newspaper even has a grayish hue to it to match the newspapers in the movies.
Most of the Daily Prophets seen in the movies have a main headline and then other smaller stories.
Obviously my headline is all about the birthday boy!
And fitting with the movie version of the newspaper, there are also other “pages” referred to along the bottom for further reading.
Although this is a one page newspaper since it’s an invitation after all.
I’m particularly tickled with the Fluffy and Muggles ads. Ha!
There’s plenty of room for the party details and discussion of what to expect at the party.
And, yes, I do plan for us to play Quidditch!
Hopefully the weather will cooperate.
We will also be making wands, practicing spells, and having a potions class.
Did you see my life-size cutout of Snape on my Instagram???
If not you totally need to check it out.
Instagram face filters work on him and it is hilarious!
Or do as I chose to do and fold it up like an actual newspaper!
All you need to do it make two folds 1/3 from each end of the invite.
Won’t the Daily Prophet be a fun surprise to pull out of the envelope!
If you like them, you can find the printable file for a small fee in my Etsy shop.
And I found these cute stag stickers at Hobby Lobby in their stationary section that are perfect Patronus sealers!
I can’t wait to share all of the fun details with you!
So many more things to prep in the meantime.
Don’t forget, if you’re interested, this Harry Potter birthday invitation can be found in my Etsy shop!
