Sun Going Down? Throw a Nighttime Summer Party Complete with Glow Products and Neon Decorations!

Turn down the lights and turn up the fun at your next party with fun neon decorations and activities!  Any party can be made a little more exciting when you make it a neon party!  Whether you’re planning a birthday party for your teen or want to add some excitement to your next barbeque, with neon accessories and glow products you can kick any event up a notch and turn your party from ordinary to extraordinary! 

Let everyone know they’re in for some neon, glow-in-the-dark fun with Neon Doodle personalized invitations that have all your party details.  Of course, you’re party will have to start after dark to make the most of your neon accessories and decorations and you’ll want to let everyone know they should wear their favorite neon clothes!  For an extra treat, include a couple glow necklaces and glow bracelets in the invitations to help your guests with their neon attire. 

To get your party space ready for your neon party, start by covering your walls with black paper, or our black starry night scene setter to block out the light and set the stage for your neon party.  Cover your doors with a black metallic fringed door curtain.  Your guests will love walking through the fringe into your dramatic neon jungle!  Change out your regular bulbs with black light bulbs and add a couple extra black light fixtures to ensure you have enough to fill your party space.  To get your guests in on the decorating fun, fill jars with liquid laundry detergent (make sure you do not use cups so no one mistakes the detergent for a drink and ingests it) and provide paint brushes.  Let them go to town painting the black paper on the walls and see what shows up under the black lights!  Another way to let your guests express themselves is to give everyone a plain black or white t-shirt when they arrive and let them decorate their own shirt, or each other’s shirts, with highlighters, which will glow under the black lights.  Once everyone is done with their fashion statements, they’ll love showing them off on the dance floor under the black lights! 

Be sure you set up your food table out of the way of the dance floor and use plenty of bright accessories that will show up under the black lights, so no one crashes into the tables!  Top your table with our neon doodle tablecloth and use our tie-dye Lumi-Loons as a centerpiece.  These illuminated balloons are great for centerpieces and will offer a little extra illumination at your food tables.  Our neon doodle plates, and napkins will complete your table décor and keep your guests happy as they fill themselves up on your tasty treats!  You’ll also want to have plenty of glow drinkware available for your guests as well.  Whether you want to limit it to basic glow ice cubes to add some sparkle to your drinks or plan to go all out with glowing martini and wine glasses, beer glasses, and pitchers, these glowing glasses will make your party extra special for everyone! 

Finger foods are a great choice for your neon party, since no one is going to want to be sitting around at this fun, high-energy event!  Pizza, mini tacos, chips and dip, raw veggies, cookies, cupcakes, and brownies are all great choices and will always be a hit with crowds. 

The final and probably most important element of your neon party is the glow products you’ll need to stock up on!  Aside from glow sticks in various sizes and colors, you’ll want to have plenty of glow necklaces and glow bracelets for your guests to don once they arrive.  They’ll be able to dance the night away under the black lights with these glow products and they will double as fun party favors! 

Whatever the occasion is, when you’re having a neon party, a few glow products, a black light, and some highlighters to decorate your t-shirts and you have the makings of a great party your kids, and even most adults, will love!
