If you're interested in adding an otherworldly and vivid theme to your soirée, throwing a blacklight party is a great option. With a properly arranged blacklight set up, you can turn even the most boring rooms into stimulating environments. To throw a great blacklight party, you will need to pick up roughly four or five medium-sized blacklights from your local party store. Regular-sized blacklights are roughly six feet long. Be sure to ask about bulk pricing for the blacklights when you visit the party store or online retailer. Depending on the area you choose to host your party, you may need extension cords to accommodate the extra blacklights. Once you receive the blacklights, feel free to experiment with different arrangements and placements to determine the optimal vibe for your specific party.
Consider what type of decorating strategy you would like to employ. For instance, you may choose to focus on clothing rather than wall ornaments to be accentuated by the blacklights. Asking your guests to wear white T-shirts will definitely make each guest stand out more once the blacklights are turned on. You can also purchase fluorescent clothes, make-up, string and glitter to really spice things up and create an unforgettable blacklight party. Blacklight-reactive fluorescent tape is also becoming popular at these types of parties and you may wish to consider this option as well. By doing so, you'll be able to ensure that guests are still reflected by the blacklight even if they forget to wear a white T-shirt or any type of fluorescent clothing. Check your local party store or visit the various online retailers to find the best accessories for your party.
To further enhance the atmosphere at your blacklight party, pick up some glow sticks, fluorescent stickers and balloons to really complete the theme. The great thing about glow sticks is that they are inexpensive and you don't have to worry about making a mess or attaching anything to your walls. Glow-in-the-dark stars are also another option to flesh out your blacklight party.
Arrange your blacklight accessories near the front door so that guests can pick them up as they enter the party. This will make them feel welcomed and ensure the continuity of your blacklight theme. As you can see, there are a limitless amount of permutations and arrangements you can achieve with the blacklight party. If you take your time in setting up the blacklights, find the right accessories, and encourage your guests to bring their own creative blacklight getups, you'll undoubtedly be ready to throw a great blacklight party.
