When most people think of witch sisters, they tend to think of the iconic Sandersons from Hocus Pocus, or maybe even the Twitches of Disney Channel. Maybe you even think of the trio from Charmed. But how can we forget about the iconic, but often overlooked, witch sisters from the 1998 rom-com Practical Magic, which stars two legendary ladies, Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. Who didn’t want to be an Owens sis with Sally and Gillian, drink margaritas, and dance around in the kitchen? The good news is, you can start your very own coven with your roomies and post your witchy ways with some Practical Magic quotes for Instagram.

If you haven't seen the film, the time is now. Plan a backyard movie night with your besties, or pour yourself some wine and watch it solo with snacks. Make sure it’s under the moonlight and you have tons of cozy blankets to keep you warm. Dress up in your most witch-worthy outfit of a long black dress, dark lipstick, and combat books, and fall in love with your setup. Light some pumpkin spice candles and have some cookies baking in the oven. When it gets to the iconic midnight margaritas scene, dance around with your friends with some Halloween-themed margaritas in hand (if you’re 21 or up). Document the whole thing with a Boomerang or Instagram Reel to post on the ‘Gram so you can hold onto those memories forever.

Now, not only does this movie have the most magical quotes, but the book that it is based on is also an amazing source for witchy quotes about love, life, and friendship. After you snap some lovely selfies with your chosen coven, use any of these 30 Practical Magic quotes to caption those pics, from both the movie and the book. These work for any romantic pics of you and your partner, Halloween #OOTDs, and a few plandids of you playing in the fallen leaves. You can even use them for a pretty selfie in portrait mode. A true fan of the film will recognize what you’re referencing right away, and give your post all the love it deserves.
