One of my Halloween traditions is going to Roger's Gardens to check out their Halloween displays that are unveiled every Labor Day weekend. This year, they have a Harry Potter-inspired boutique decorated to look like Hogwarts, similar to last year's displays. Despite repeating the same theme as last year, I was excited to check out this year's displays.
When I attended opening day, I glad to see that the displays were different than last year's, though still Hogwarts-themed. It was a magical experience getting to be immersed in incredible rooms filled with potions, spellbooks, owls, and fantastic beasts. You can see photos from this year's Roger's Gardens Halloween boutique below:

Front facade of the Halloween Boutique - such a good replica of Hogwarts!
A corner nook and a house banner for Hufflepuffs (they had all the house
banners out, but I just happened to take a photo of this one, even though I
most closely associate with Ravenclaw)
They have these ornaments every year, and every year I'm entranced by them

I want to live here!
Such a pretty little cabinet - the Magic banner was so cute but covered
in glitter, ick! I may attempt to just make my own.
Vintage-inspired masquerade masks (but, ugh, feathers)
Moaning Myrtle was lurking around here...
I love this ghostly white corner

If you are in the area, I highly recommend a visit to Roger's Gardens and their Halloween Boutique! While I usually don't purchase anything there, it is fun just to be immersed in the displays and admire all the amazing decor. It is free to get in, and you can wander their beautiful grounds while you are there as well. I recommend going early in the season, since it tends to get very crowded as we get closer to Halloween.
