The beginning of 2020 was “siriusly” magical for Colorado blogger, Holly Osborn. When tasked with planning a gender reveal party for her boyfriend’s sister, Courtney and her husband Andy, Osborn decided to throw a Harry Potter party for the two little muggles – yes, it’s twins!

On her blog, The Duchess of Denver, Osborn writes, “When they asked me do their gender reveal I immediately knew what I would do. They are huge Harry Potter fans (one of the million reasons we get along so well). I have always pinned HP themed gender reveal pins to my secret ‘future babies’ Pinterest board. Now was my chance to put them to use!”

Attendees were encouraged to wear their favorite Harry Potter garb and bring their wands in order to participate in the reveals.

Each baby had their own separate reveal. When asked, “Witch or Wizard?”, the Sorting Hat revealed a new wizard would be coming. For the second reveal, a potion mixed in the cauldron created a puff of blue smoke.

In lieu of gifts, Osborn opted to have a “Free Dobby” sock donation and a Tri-Wizard Diaper Raffle Cup.

Looks like, there will be two new wizards waiting for their letters from Hogwarts 11 years from now.
