Did you know that I love all things Harry Potter? I mean LOVE. That’s why this year for my annual Halloween Party we are doing all things Harry Potter. So here are a few ways you, too, can be transported to that magical world and have a magical “Harry Potter” Halloween Party.
That magical world created by the brilliant J.K. Rowling has so many elements that captivate and move you. Everything from Hogwarts to Butter Beer makes me want to jump through the pages. But, alas, I cannot. However, I can have the next best thing.
1. Hogwarts Invitations
Give your guests the gift they’ve always dreamed of -an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. You can find a tutorial on how to make your own here.
2. Platform 9 3/4 Entrance
How cool would it be to run through a brick wall and magically be transported to another world? Make that a reality for your guests by putting this up on your front door. Here’s how to make your own.
3. Floating Candles
Surprise the guests at your Harry Potter Halloween party with an experience of being in the Great Hall and greet them with floating candles. Find out how to make them here.
4. Golden Snitches
Give your guests a yummy treat with these chocolate Golden Snitches! Maybe trow them in the air and make your guests try to catch them! Learn to make them here.
6. Invisibility Cloaks
This SIRIUSly (get my pun, Harry Potter fans?) is the easiest thing you can do for your party. Thanks Pinterest!
7. Hogwarts Acceptance Letter Photo Booth Backdrop
Recreate the scene when Harry receives all the letters from Hogwarts flying around the room and make it your photo booth backdrop! Find more inspiration here.
8. A Toilet Surprise
I can’t. I just can’t. *Laughing so hard I can’t even type* Moaning Myrtle in the toilet! Lololol! Find more hilarious inspiration here.
Once your guests stop laughing after a trip to the bathroom, engage them in some friendly competition with a game of Table Quidditch. Go Team Ravenclaw! This will be the hit of your Harry Potter Halloween party. Find out how to make it here.
10. Mandrake Cakes
Here’s a little icing on the mandrake….I mean cake! Have your guests wear ear muffs when they are eating them! Find the inspiration here.
