How to Throw the Ultimate Harry Potter Bachelorette Party

Calling all Potter-heads! If you’re a mega fan still waiting eagerly for an owl to arrive with your acceptance letter to Hogwarts, it’s a no-brainer to incorporate your love for the Wizarding World into your bachelorette with a Harry Potter-themed party. Whether you’re a Gryffindor girl or Ravenclaw for life, a Harry Potter bachelorette party is a magical way to celebrate with your best witches and wizards by your side. 

While we can’t help with the owl (you’re on your own there!), we’ve put together a guide on how to plan a bachelorette party that will have you and your squad heading home saying “mischief managed!”

Let’s Decorate!

Create a spellbinding atmosphere from the moment your guests arrive with decor that will make you feel like you’ve been transported right into Diagon Alley or Hogwarts Castle. 

$: This Muggle to Mrs balloon set creates a fun yet affordable photo backdrop, or opt for something edgier with a She Let Him Slytherin set featuring a cheeky play on words.  

$$: A magical balloon arch featuring golden snitches creates a wow-worthy entrance moment or backdrop for the festivities. Create an authentic Hogwarts feel by lining the walls with banners from each House.  

$$$: Add some twinkle to the party with a luxe strand of Winged Key lights or go full-on Hogwarts Castle with a set of floating candles that are serving Great Hall vibes. 

Witchy Welcome Bags

Welcome guests to your witchy weekend in style with an enchanting assortment of gifts. When you send out the bachelorette party invitations, ask your squad to take a Harry Potter house quiz. You can then use these Hogwarts House welcome bags, and the bachelorette party favors below to create curated gift sets specific to their house! 

Curate Your Witch Wardrobe

While you might not be able to pop down to Diagon Alley to outfit your group at Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions, here are our favorite picks to get into the spirit:

Let the Games Begin! 

Channel your inner Triwizard Tournament competitor with a series of Harry Potter-themed bachelorette party game ideas.  

Sure, you could throw it back to your college days with a few games of beer pong for old times’ sake, but why not take things up a notch with a Quidditch-themed Wizard Pong competition instead? This creative take on beer pong incorporates tabletop rings, golden snitch cups, and even spell cards for a unique twist on the game that will have your whole team cheering. 

Test your wizarding knowledge and find out who’s the biggest Harry Potter fan in the group with a Trivial Pursuit World of Harry Potter competition, or play a few rounds of Harry Potter-themed Would You Rather learn how your friends would act if they were in the wizarding world. 

Try your luck with a tasty or terrifying game of BeanBoozled – just like Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, you never know what you’ll get! Will it be buttered popcorn or a rotten egg? Only one way to find out, and there will be lots of laughs along the way as you watch your friends take a spin on the spinner wheel.  

Lastly, a bachelorette party isn’t complete without a photo booth! Set up and use instant cameras to snap candid shots throughout the night – especially decked out in your amazing costumes.

Tasty Treats

Make your own Hogwarts Express treat trolley with all Harry’s favorite foods. Whip up some Pumpkin Pasties or make edible Wizard Wands for sweet treats that rival the trolley witch’s offerings. 

If you’re having a group movie night, prepare some sweet and salty Troll Boogey popcorn to munch during the movie marathon. Don’t worry – it tastes better than it sounds! 

Of course, it’s not a party without a butterbeer. This copycat recipe will have you feeling like you’re in a pub in Hogsmeade. Top it with butterscotch schnapps or vanilla vodka for a little extra kick! Another fun option is Butterbeer Jell-O shots, sure to get the party going.  

Set the Mood with a Magical Playlist

Put together a magic-themed playlist that’ll have your group ready to boogie down like they’re on the dance floor at the Yule Ball: 

  • Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic – The Police
  • Do You Believe in Magic? – The Lovin’ Spoonful 
  • Magic – B.o.B, Rivers Cuomo
  • Wicked Ones – Dorothy
  • Black Magic Woman – Santana
  • I Put a Spell On You – Nina Simone
  • Magic Stick – Lil’ Kim 
  • 24K Magic – Bruno Mars
  • Witchcraft – Frank Sinatra 
  • Season of the Witch – Lana Del Ray
  • Sisters of the Moon – Fleetwood Mac
