There All Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus Party Ideas

"Oh look!  Another glorious morning!  Makes me sick!"

This was the quote of the night for our first ever cousins Hocus Pocus party.

If you've never seen Hocus Pocus, let me suggest to you to go check it out.

This movie was not popular when it came out in the 90's.  Believe me, I know.

But as a family, we watched it religiously every October.  We laughed, quoted and created t-shirts revolving around this silly and sometimes frightening trio of witches.

We finally decided to truly introduce our children to the Sanderson Sisters this year.  Which meant of course we had to have an official Hocus Pocus party.

And boy did we ever!

With a little help from my Cricut Maker machine, we pulled off a fun, not scary Halloween party that all our kids or cousin friends, as we put it, loved.  This will become a tradition I am sure.

Let me share with you what we put together.

DIY Hocus Pocus Party Ideas

Just a quick tips, party planning does not have to be expensive!  Go to your local dollar store or Walmart.  You can easily decorate for a party for under $20.  Just be creative and don't stress over perfection.

Since this was a family party, we thought it best to give some food options.  We had a nacho bar.  With delicious offerings like "Dead Mans Toe" and "Eye of Newt".

Attendees could decide what they liked to top their nachos and add their own bit of Hocus Pocus to their meal.

Of course we also invited good 'ole Thackery Binks.

If you aren't familiar with Thackery, he is the boy who turns into a cat for 300 years.

Thackery is carefully watching over our zombie cookies that were inspired by Billy in the movie.  Each child got 2 cookies and could decorate them however they wished.  They got to take them home in their Hocus Pocus treat bags.

Once dinner and cookie decorating were concluded, it was time for the movie.

During the movie popcorn was a must.  So of course Winnie, Mary and Sarah helped dish out the treats in these paper buckets.

Overall, we had a great time.  Lots of food was eaten.  Loads of movie quotes were shared.  And our kids are now official members of the Hocus Pocus fan club.
