Blacklight parties are fun for any age group and in any style from tame to raging. The key to success is throwing a fun and innovative glow party while providing a safe and exciting environment for everyone. When throwing a child’s party that incorporates black lighting, there are several things you can do to ensure an amazing event.
Anything that is fluorescent, neon, or bright white clothing will glow great under the blacklight. Often times having your guests wear white t-shirts is a great place to start. You can pass out fluorescent hi-lighters which kids can use to draw on each other. This is a safe and low key way to inspire creativity and give a great activity for kids of any age.
Another option (albeit messy) is to pass out fluorescent paint or even water downed paint in water guns to allow them to decorate themselves and their clothing. Obviously this is a more extreme dayglow style blacklight party. However, this can be a great option for extreme outdoor blacklight events.
Blacklight decorations are easy. You do not necessarily need special blacklight paint to make your venue glow. Regular fluorescent paints will work great under powerful black lights. We often recommend washable fluorescent paint that can be found at www.DiscountSchoolSupplies.com. Also, fluorescent balloons provide a great accent to any venue.
For an easy and interactive venue decoration, you can use white paper to line walls and/or white paper tablecloths. This will act as a large canvas where kids can draw glowing pictures under the blacklights with fluorescent highlighters. This also is a tamer option then having guests draw on each other.
Having lots of glowing decorations will also help create ambient light. This will allow you to be able to see what is going on in the venue for a safe environment, without diluting the amazing blacklight effect!
When you think of Disney’s Frozen, what do you see? Surely the first thing that comes to mind is the films snowy expanses. Frozen centers on ice and snow as much as it does on its characters; the film’s stunning rendering of harsh winter weather won it praise from critics and fans alike. If you’re planning to throw a Frozen theme party and you really want to make it memorable, there’s one surefire way to do it: Adding snow.
Creating snow from thin air isn’t just a talent of Elsa, Frozen’s magical princess. It’s also something you can do on your own by renting a cutting-edge snow machine. At Blank Extreme Entertainment, we offer professional artificial snow equipment that creates beautiful, atmospheric snow that looks almost identical to real falling snow. Set the machine up and fill it with the included fluid and you’ll be ready to turn your backyard into a real-life recreation of Frozen’s Arendelle.
Snow output can be adjusted to your liking, allowing for everything from a light flurry to a serious blizzard. Once you’ve got it set up and tuned to your liking, you can use the device’s remote control to manage the snow output without any further muss or fuss. Adding the touch of snow to your Frozen theme party will ensure that your children and their guests never forget this amazing experience.
Snow machine rental also has another big advantage: Artificial snow leaves virtually no residue to clean up. Don’t worry about having to dig yourself out of a snowbank at the end of the party, as the snow machine creates only beautiful snow that doesn’t stick or gather. It’s there while it falls, and gone seconds later.
Planning a foam party is more than just finding the perfect high output foam machine. Finding the perfect venue to host your party can be the biggest challenge. The great news is there are many options both indoors and outdoors and the following tips and tricks will help create the perfect event!
Indoor events pose the toughest challenge. All foam is water based and it is imperative that anything that is water sensitive is removed or covered from your venue. Wood floors, plaster walls, immovable ground speakers, etc. all can prove to be obstacles to the perfect foam party. Foam pits are often thought of as the answer. However, inflatable foam pits are often a poor choice. They are limiting in size, often leak, and can be slippery when wet. Flooring and walls that are not water sensitive such as tile, concrete, brick, block, or linoleum, do not need to be covered. For those surfaces that do need to be covered, plastic sheeting creates a perfect customized enclosure over anything that is water sensitive. Plastic sheeting is sold in rolls of many sizes in any home store such as Lowes and/or Home Depot. The seams of this sheeting can be sealed with normal Duct Tape.
Now that you have protected sensitive areas for your foam party, we would like to share a tip that we have been using for years. We use carpet padding to create a layer on top of plastic sheeting or other more slick flooring. This creates a padded, rubbery non-slip, and absorbent flooring layer. Often times, if you ask local carpet stores, they can even save their used carpet padding for you for free. Following your event, this padding can be easily thrown away for a quick foam party cleanup.
Outdoor foam parties are often logistically easier than indoor venues. There are plenty of places that you can hang a foam machine outdoors including a truss, a tree, a balcony, ladders, or tents. By far, our favorite location for an outdoor foam event is in a tent. This creates a perfect sized enclosure that you can also hang the foam machine and/or lights from. To save money on tent rentals, often times our customers will have walls put on the tent but request that the ceiling tarp be left off. This will create an amazing open aired venue for your foam party.
Outdoor events can be done in parking lots, patios, basketball or tennis courts, beaches, pools, or even back yards.
There are many ways to throw a memorable party, but exceeding expectations is the best method in existence. We have the missing ingredient for your upcoming event. From laser light rentals to black lights and LED displays, you have a variety of tools to put to work and create a lasting impression on any audience. When you have the right visual display, there are few things to stop your party from being a hit.
How can LED light rentals change the game at an event? You can customize the colors and patterns of the lighting available to suit any crowd you expect. Party planners use these tools when they want to add a unique aspect to parties held in familiar places. If you are renting a space from a school or municipality, black light rentals and other visual changes can make your guests forget where they are. As you probably know, creating an image of an alternate reality is the best thing a party planner can do.
