2018 Halloween Work Party- Harry Potter Theme

In a recent Book Blogger Hop, the topic was Literary Halloween Costumes and I mentioned that we had an awesome plan for our team at work.

Well, I can finally share what that idea was!! Which, as you can see, was a Harry Potter theme!

On our team we had:
  • A Hufflepuff student
  • Nymphadora Tonks
  • Luna Lovegood
  • Ginny Weasley 
  • Bellatrix Lestrange
  • The Golden Snitch
  • Hermione Granger
  • Albus Dumbledore
  • Harry Potter
  • A Patronus
  • An Owl
  • Ron Weasley
  • Professor Mcgonagall
  • Severus Snape 
  • Draco Malfoy
We were going to have a Professor Quirrell/He Who Must Not Be Named. But unfortunately he was traveling. 

The hallway leading to our room looked so fun! We had lots of plastic stuck to the wall that looked like a rock wall. There was signage and torches. Which all lead up to Platform 9 3/4. When you stepped through the wall, you entered the great hall.

Our conference room that we turned into the great hall looked awesome! The team blacked out the windows and we had things all over the place; floating candles, flickering table candles, owls, howlers, house banners, and more! We also turned the electric fireplace on and had Harry Potter playing on the TV.

Check out some more photos from the event below:

How awesome are these signs?! My coworker Ashley created them!

The owner of the company and our recently retired president. <3

HOW AMAZING IS THIS CAR?! My coworker Giselle made it the night before the party. I'm so bummed I didn't get a photo of myself in it or a shot of our Ron and Harry driving in it.

I was a Hufflepuff student! No one specific. I just really wanted one of these amazing robes! Let me tell you, it was worth every penny!

It was so much fun to see how into the holiday this office gets! I already cannot wait for next year!

Thanks for checking out the photos!
Are you planning on dressing up for Halloween at work this year?

  1. Your work looks like a fun place to be! I'd love to be part of a Harry Potter themed party!

  2. Omg you guys went all out! I love little Hedwig and I hope you keep the decorations up for a while!

  3. OMG how fun! Anything HP related is exciting for me lol.

  4. This is so amazing! I'm so jealous ❤️❤️❤️

  5. I had an inkling this is what you all settled on and I love it! You Hufflepuff robe makes me want to hunt down a Ravenclaw one for myself. Ha, the howler!

    1. :-D Oh my gosh, get one! It's SO warm and comfy!! I found mine for $45 but the Spirit Store had a sale going on, so I got free shipping and saved $5 on top of that!

  6. That’s looks awesome! I don’t envy the people who had to decorate but it sure is beautiful.

    1. haha! I missed out on most of the decorating because of my sinus infection (my face was POUNDING the afternoon they were all working on it), but I set up a lot of the small candles that were scattered around the next morning :)

  7. How fun! That's awesome that everyone did a whole theme.

  8. Oh my gosh, how fun! I am so amazed and impressed at how much work went into it and how realistic everything looks!

  9. Oh wow, this looks like so much fun! You and your coworkers did such an amazing job pulling it all together and I love all of the costumes.

  10. Now that looks amazing, people never cease to amaze me with their craftiness. I hate to admit this, but never did get into Harry Potter, I feel like I'm too old for it. And I work at home, so nope no dressing up, just reading a scary novella with halloween music in the background. Happy Halloween!

  11. Oh my god, your work is amazing. How fun would it be to have a HP party at work?! And where did you get your robe? It looks so cute, and cozy! The flying car is really cool - whoever made that did a great job.


    1. I snagged it from the Spirit Store :) It's SO warm and comfy!

  12. Is your place hiring because I want to work there!
