Halloween is just around the corner. I have to admit I’m not the best at getting my home “fall ready” but I do love jumping aboard the Halloween train. This year the kids were all about Harry Potter – I love it! So we decided to go all out with a Harry Potter themed entryway. I partnered with World Market on the post because of their huge selection of Halloween decor and goodies – Not only do they have all types of Halloween decor for the inside and out, they even have Halloween food and beverages. Way to make it easy for us World Market!
Dementors | Broom | Tablecloth | Cauldron | Bowl | Cloche | Butter Beer | Candelabra | Gold Coins | Floating Candles | Snitch | Owl | Candle Holder | Jelly Beans | Wolf Rug | Black Candles
I set up a skinny console table on one side of the entryway to display everything. This tablecloth draped perfectly over it. I also hung the battery-powered candles above it. The cauldron makes the perfect candy bowl, but for now I used it to hold the “butter beer“. I also used a large ball of chocolate to create a snitch, by tapping some white cardboard wings onto it.
On the screen door I projected a moving portrait, like the ones that stand guard in the Hogwart’s dormitories in the book. This AtmosFX Halloween projection kit was the perfect solution. It comes with all sorts of projections as well. I might have to do some flying ghosts in the main window as well! This particular animation is from their “Unliving Portraits” collection. Here’s a video of what it looks like:
