A Black Light Party or Glow Party is at the top of the most current and in demand teen party ideas list.
Usually reserved for a dance party, you can use blacklight and glow items as part of any teenage party.
You can also use blacklight in creative ways, such as doing a glow olympics.
Basically, you’ll want to switch out your light bulbs for blacklight light bulbs. These bulbs give off a sort of purple light, and make colors appear differently. White and neon colors, such as green, yellow and pink will glow in the dark of the black light.
Here are some fun ideas for teen parties to help you really make use of your blacklights:
-Decorate with black light party balloons
-Tell your guests to dress in white or neon colors
-Pass out glow sticks, or other glow in the dark items
-Hang up purchased black light posters (really popular in the 1970’s!)
-Keep the black lights as a surprise! Great for a surprise teenage birthday party. Just tell the party guests to wear neon or white, and then when they glow it they will get a fun surprise too!
Now that everything is glowing, what shall you do?
Before your party, test to make sure that you have enough black light so the room will glow! You can switch out the light bulbs and try out some neon and white in the room. Some black light bulbs are more powerful than others, so you really need to make sure that you have enough lighting to create the special effects that you want.
