You’re Gonna Want to Spend Your Valentine’s Day at Hogwarts Castle

It may have been six years since we got a new Harry Potter movie and 10 years since we got a new book about the original trio, but the craze is still very much alive (all the hype surrounding Fantastic Beasts likely doesn’t hurt, either). Clothing collections with the theme still sell like hotcakes, and Potterheads everywhere lost their minds when themed vacations and tours started popping up. In recent years, fans have been able to visit Hogwarts for the holidays, and it looks like the castle is opening its doors once again.


The Warner Bros Studio London is giving Potter fanatics the chance to visit the hallowed halls for Valentine’s Day in 2018. On February 9 and February 10, you can dine with your loved one in the Great Hall. When you walk in, you’ll be greeted with drinks — including an exclusive Love Potion cocktail — and canapés, and you’ll find your chosen wand waiting for you when you sit down.

Diagon Alley Studio Tour

After the three-course dinner (where you’ll get a photo with your companion), you’ll be treated to an after-hours Studio Tour, where you’ll get to visit sets like the kitchen at the Burrow, Dumbledore’s office, the Gryffindor common room, and the Forbidden Forest. You’ll get to partake in Butterbeer, hang out on Platform 9 3/4, see the original Hogwarts Express, and even see actual costumes from the film. You’ll get to wander down Diagon Alley and see the Hogwarts castle model.

Tickets are on sale starting today, December 19 and will run you £495 (about $662) per table. If there’s a Potter nut you love, this would definitely make the perfect gift.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
