24 'Practical Magic' Quotes That Are Perfect For Your Coven Pics On Insta

Originally Published: 

When most people think of witch sisters, they tend to think of the iconic Sandersons from Hocus Pocus. But let's not forget about the romantic witch sisters from Practical Magic! Who didn’t want to be an Owens sis with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman, 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. 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. 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.

Snap some lovely selfies with your chosen coven, and use any of these 24 Practical Magic quotes to caption those pics. These work for any romantic pics of you and your partner, Halloween #OOTDs, and a few plandids of you playing in the fallen leaves. A true fan of the film will recognize what you’re referencing right away, and give your post all the love it deserves.
