Harry Potter Party Plates
If you’re planning to serve food or a little buffet, paper plates are always a good idea. The only thing better is potter party plates! Here’s a couple of different options to get you into the wizarding spirit.
Platform 9 ¾
Turn your doorway into the iconic train station entryway with DIY brick or brick-style wallpaper and a platform sign. Running through the door is optional!
On arrival, all the guests must go through the sorting hat to determine their house for the evening. This coincides really well with any magical games you might have planned.
Badges & Broomsticks
Leave a basket of wizardy wonder and accessories at the door, including house badges, brooms and cloaks so everyone can get involved with the theme.
Felix Felicis - Alcoholic or Not!
It’s tradition to have a drink ready for your guests arrival. But why not take a page out of Hermione’s spell book and make a potion to toast the occasion properly. You can get loads of Potter inspired drink ideas on Pinterest.
Effective and pretty easy to do, hang the four house flags high with coloured balloons and emblems to finish the look.
Long Live Hedwig
Re-vitalise the memory of Hedwig with little owl cut outs or figurations to decorate the walls and give a subtle yet magical atmosphere.
This Way for Diagon Alley
A popular HP decoration is signs pointing to all the weird and wonderful shops down Diagon Alley.
The Great Hall
Although you might not be able to make the candles float, there’s tons of DIY hacks you can use to create a mini Great Hall at home. We’re thinking candles on strings, long tables and red curtains.
Great for an icebreaker, print out large versions of iconic quotes from the show and dot them all over the walls, they’ll make a great talking point for the group and bring back memories of your fav franchise too.
Both a potter themed decoration and a game! Face your fears and fight back against the dementors before they suck your soul.
