All it takes is a little hocus pocus to throw a bewitching Halloween bash or thrilling movie night. And, since the Sanderson Sisters are finally returning to Salem in a Hocus Pocus movie sequel, we just had to celebrate with a Hocus Pocus-themed party. So, come little children and follow our lead as we share our must-have Hocus Pocus decorations and Halloween party supplies for your spellbinding soirée.
To start, we designed a bubbling balloon garland in shades of lavender, black, and gray to drape over our party set-up. For an extra dose of dimension, we varied the sizes, and layered a few whimsical marble balloons throughout.
The (magic) trick to creating a balloon installation that pops lies in the details. We love the look of incorporating foil balloons with latex, especially when they have a little holographic shine to them. We suggest adding some witch hat balloons, cauldron balloons, and purple ghost balloons to the mix.
There’s no such thing as too many Halloween balloons, so don’t be afraid to brew an extra helium bouquet or two. We created this creepy-cute trio using a black spider, purple bat, and Hocus-Pocus themed balloon; but feel free to mix and match however you please.
The tablescape we (witch) crafted is just a bunch of hocus pocus—but in the best way possible! We used a wicked concoction of patterned party supplies and witch-themed party decorations to create a celebration fit for Winifred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson, themselves.
To conjure up a similar set-up, simply line your dining table or living room coffee table with a black and white striped runner. Then, stagger some eerie accents like black flame candles or a cauldron floral arrangement along the center. A perfect table setting for Halloween night!
When it comes to color here, we suggest leaving the magic up to the purple partyware and sticking to black and white for the rest of the tabletop decor. A classic faux pumpkin is one of our favorite decorations because it compliments any Halloween party theme. We displayed ours atop a shiny black cake stand—a brilliant decor idea if you didn’t brew up a dessert like caramel apples.
With our brimming selection of Hocus Pocus paper party supplies, the tablescape options are endless! We love the idea of using the same core elements at each place, then alternating with a few different accents. It makes the entire setting look a little more stylish, and it gives you an excuse to double-double-toil-and-trouble-up on party goods!
There’s no spell needed for a hypnotizing place setting, just these purple checkered plates and napkins. The zany pattern is perfect for a quirky witch party, so we layered them with Hocus Pocus plates, witch hat plates, and spellbook plates.
Then, we paired each napkin with either a black flame candle napkin. Each place setting also featured a lilac tumbler and a Hocus Pocus coffee cup—an ideal duo for serving warm apple cider and witch’s brew.
If this bewitching band of party supplies calls to you, we made it easy to pick up each piece. You can recreate this exact set-up, or mix and match with our editorially curated Hocus Pocus Party Kit!
And like they say, if the broom fits, fly it! We recommend adding this broomstick cutlery set as the perfect final touch. Finally, make sure to include a few wicked-fun party favors like witch's brew drink stirrers or mini witch hats. You also can’t go wrong with a spooky surprise ball, especially if you think you’ll smell children around your party.
We hope you’re as excited as we are for all the hocus pocus fun to come—at your house and the box office! While we would never put a spell on you, we would “put you on” to some more spellbinding party supplies; so, be sure to browse the rest of our Hocus Pocus decorations and party goods here!
