For us, millennials, Harry Potter was a HUGE part of our childhood.
JK Rowling’s wizarding world captivated our hearts with its lore and characters – so much so, that we all wished we could live in it.
One Potterhead named Alyanna got to do just that – even for just one night.
Alyanna’s stunning Harry Potter-themed debut made us mere Muggles so jealous!
The organizers even recreated the Great Hall complete with floating candles!
The venue was also decorated with iconic scenes from the books
Remember Harry and Ron’s run-in with the Whomping Willow while stuck inside the Weasley’s family car?
How about The Hogwarts Express? Or in this case, Alyanna’s express.
Maybe you’d like to visit the revamped Diagon Alley too?
The gorgeous debutante flaunted her own cool musical numbers…
…and had her bday cake presented by none other than Dobby!
This event def took an insane amount of effort (and one heck of a bank account) so congrats to the organizers as well as to the debutante and her family – the real-life Crazy Rich Asians.
