You’ve read all the books. You’ve binge-watched all the films (more times than you can count). And you may or may not have daydreamed what it’d be like to receive your very own letter from Hogwarts. You are a straight-up Potterhead, and you don’t care who knows it! Which is why a Harry-Potter-themed baby shower is right up your Diagon Alley … (see what we did there?).
The good news is, you’re far from alone in your Harry Potter obsession. (But you already knew that, didn’t you?)
