In the past 20 years, the rise and rise of Harry Potter has been almost unrivalled. Popular with children everywhere, it's quickly become a favourite theme for birthday parties for children of all ages. Inspired by kids' love for all things magic, we created our Witches & Wizards range of birthday party stationery. Including a magical birthday party invitation, matching name cards and a party sign, and thank you cards for after the event, they're just perfect for any child who's mad about Harry, Ron and Hermione.

Harry Potter-Inspired Birthday Party Invitation

Our Harry Potter-inspired range includes everything you'd expect to find if you're a fan of the series of books or films, including the famous Gryffindor colours, recognisable references and spellbinding fonts. Each design is guaranteed to get your child's friends excited for the upcoming party, whether it's fancy dress or you've just got plenty of themed games and goodies to enjoy. As with all of our children's party stationery (including our Magic Show themed range), you can personalise your chosen design online with all of the key party details. Then choose from our printing options - opt for Printable PDF and you'll receive a file in your inbox which you can print locally or at home; go for Printed & Delivered and you'll receive your invitations in the post, professionally printed and expertly protected.

Once you've got the party stationery sorted, it's time to start thinking about what else you're going to fill the party with - from games and party bags, to food and party props. To help you along, we've included some of our favourite ideas below.
