Black lights have been around for a long time and are still considered something of a novelty.
Black lights are fluorescent lights that have been coated to screen out visible light, allowing only ultraviolet light to get through. When a black light is set up in a dark room, the ultraviolet light reflects off white or fluorescent items, making them pop with an luminescent glow. With a little bit of creativity, using black lights as the setting for a party can make for a fun event whether you’re hosting a child’s birthday party or dining, dancing and celebrating at a big corporate event.
The first and most important thing to remember when throwing a black light party is that where ever you’re hosting it, the space needs to be a dark as possible. Pitch black is ideal to help make the reflected light pop to the highest degree possible.
Once you have your black canvas in place, you are limited only by your imagination. You can use glow in the dark cups, plates, utensils, straws, coasters, posters, lighted ice cubes and bowls, balloons, ribbons and confetti that will glow when placed under a black light. For an eerie effect, consider adding a fog machine that is sure to add a futuristic space-aged feel to the ambiance.
You can also decorate your guests, too. Be sure to have white clothing on hand or as part of the requested dress code on your invitations. You can also outfit party-goers with neon leis, bracelets, necklaces, hats and so forth. Again, you are limited only by your imagination.
