Calling all witches, wizards, werewolves, trolls and goblins: This magical theme is best suited to a creative crowd that isn’t afraid to sport their house colors. It’s a great spin for any Halloween parties, or really, any time of the year you want to tap into your imagination. Get guests excited by instructing them to choose a house (Slytherin, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw) and come dressed for the theme.
Weave enchanted décor into your event with ghosts (tulle-draped balloons), magical potions (dry ice party punch) and strategically placed broomsticks for impromptu Quidditch.

Give your event a Leaky Cauldron feel by hosting in a dimly lit (in a good way) intimate pub space.
We hate to break it to you, but since you’re a muggle, you won’t be able to pull off a Hogwarts-style feast. Instead, lean into a (less magical but still tasty) regular school cafeteria option: sliders.
Play up the reputation of each house by assigning them four different signature sips. Need some ideas? We’re thinking:
Slytherin: Dark and Stormy (Or a Tom Collins for some “Tom” wordplay)
Gryffindor: Moscow Mule
Hufflepuff: Vodka Cranberry
The real magic here is the perfect combination of DIY skills and clear fishing line. Create the illusion of levitating candles with electric tea candles wrapped in a column of white construction paper. Pour melted candle wax along the top of the candles for an authentic look.
