10 Party Items From Amazon That Will Turn Your House Into Hogwarts

The onset of the cold season is a special time for Harry Potter fans. For many, this is the time to wrap up in a blanket and reread books or watch movies about the magical world. Some Reddit users share that they rewatch all parts of the movie saga every year! For lovers of the magical world, we offer to build Hogwarts at home. Throw a Halloween or a themed Christmas party with these atmospheric decorations from Amazon.

1. Set up an entrance to platform 9 and 3/4 at King’s Cross station. Run at full speed!

How to use:

  • Hang the brick wall over your front door.
  • Stick on the numbers to represent your house number so that guests don’t mix up the address!
  • Open the door for the invited wizards and let them run through the wall!

Promising review:

Perfect for Potter fans.
This was great, we had a lockdown party and used this as the entrance to our dining room where the ‘party’ was taking place. My son absolutely loved it, it was a little wide for our door frame but better than short :)

2. A sturdy cardboard photo frame for your photo booth to capture the memories of a party or hang a portrait of the hero of the occasion on the wall.

A must for any Harry Potter party.
This was a great find for a Harry Potter baby shower I hosted. Everyone took photos with it all night, and it really completed the decor. It’s great that it comes with wooden doors to keep it upright and sturdy. Would highly recommend.

Brilliant backdrop.
Amazing value for money, ordered this as a backdrop for a Harry Potter party, it was great, got some fab photos of the kids in their robes against it. I was able to stick it to the wall with double sided tape.

Love it.
This is a great poster and fits my door just right. A perfect addition to my Harry Potter-themed room. Quality paper, lovely shine to it, and not flimsy at all. She’s become a much-talked-about item in our house.
