Halloween, birthday parties or scary sleepover parties – Whoever wants to celebrate a magical event finds a lot of inspirations within the world of Harry Potter. Find the perfect tips and tricks on this page for an unforgettable Harry Potter Party.

Decoration Ideas for a magical Hogwarts atmosphere

Start with the entrance to your party location. Paint an old bedsheet in the pattern of a brick wall to create an eerily environment. If the arriving guests cut a whole with scissors into the bedsheet they can enter through platform 9 3/4. Popular pets are hiding in corners such as rats, toads, cats and owls. You can use stuffed animals as decoration. Place plastic spiders and other critters on tables and shelves. Furthermore, use gold and red highlights on these to create a true Gryffindor look. Electric or real candles (use safely) round off the perfect atmosphere.

Magical Food and Beverages

Harry Potter Costumes

Witches and magicians appear with wands, capes and pointy hats. If you decide to dress up as Harry Potter don´t forget the round glasses and the scar on your forehead. Maybe your friends like to dress up s Harry Potter´s bestie Hermione or Ron. As Dobby just use a bedsheet and wrap it around your body. Don´t forget the sock! Severus Snape should be dressed completely in black and Hagrid wears a long beard and a black belt. Choose your favorite characters and create the greatest party Harry Potter group.
