Party with the lights off
May 08, 2009
The nighttime is the right time, especially if you want to throw a glow-in-the-dark party.
Thanks to special party decorations and glow sticks, organizing such an event should not be too difficult for parents. Just be sure the area for the party has been swept for anything people could bump into in the dark.
One extra-special touch could be to make the party invitations out of black construction paper and use glow-in-the-dark paint or ink.
As for the party itself, using glow-in-the-dark stickers on the walls, tables or chairs will help the room light up, so to speak.
For food and drink, make use of glow-in-the-dark straws and flashing ice cubes. Placing a lava lamp by the food table may make it easier for partygoers to locate the food during the party too.
However, the most important aspect may be outfitting your guests with glow-in-the-dark accessories, which will include necklaces, glow sticks and bracelets. To set the proper mood, pick upbeat pop music to play and make sure there's a big area cleared out for everyone to dance.
