We originally threw this party on July 31st to celebrate Harry Potter's birthday, but Halloween is also an excellent time for some magic! Especially since it's so easy to find costume pieces--you could have a whole house of witches, wizards, Death Eaters, and elves! Rather than go with the 9 3/4 brick wall entry that you see at so many parties, we went with a Marauder's Map theme, because honestly, what better time to be up to no good than at a party?
Our guests were greeted with some Ferrero Rocher golden snitches and these terribly cute temporary tattoos to add some flash to the evening!
The Marauder's Map theme continues with tiny sets of footprints all up and down the hall.
Our second entry table becomes a potions lab--this is where the Halloween decorations really come in handy!
The kitchen was filled with flying keys!
The restroom paid tribute to The Chamber of Secrets with snake details, our very own tiny whomping willow and flying car, and resident guest Moaning Myrtle in the toilet!
Our Hogwarts treats included Hagrid's birthday cake, chocolate frogs filled with peanut butter and chocolate mousse, and these adorable potted mandrake dirt cups!
Seriously, how cute are these?!
Our Great Hall was filled with over 70 homemade floating candles.
Follow the spiders!
Annnnnnnd mischief managed! Another successful evening--what was your favorite detail from this magical night?
