Two friends from Mumbai, Danish Bagdadi and Shraddha Uchil, recently threw a surprise birthday party for one of their closest friends.
But the party wasn't just any surprise birthday. It was an insanely well-planned, and super-fun Harry Potter–themed party.
"We started planning the party only a week in advance, so we weren’t sure how we’d pull it off. So we kept it simple," Uchil told BuzzFeed.
"A Potter-themed cake was a must, of course. Apart from that, we re-created some elements from the series," she added.
"Since finding Harry Potter merchandise in India is not easy, we had to make a lot of the stuff from scratch," Uchil said.
A Marauder’s Map, a Sorting Hat, floating Hogwarts letters, potions bottles, and pages from The Daily Prophet were all part of the décor.
