How to decorate a black light party?

A black light party can be a lot of fun. But if you’ve never been to one, you might not know how to start. What kind of decorations should you use? What should you wear? And what kind of food should you serve?

Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. In this blog post, we’ll give you everything you need to know to throw an epic black light party that your friends will be talking about for weeks.


To ensure that everything glows brightly at your black light party, you should surround the party with Ultraviolet light. The Glowave™ black light kit is the best solution for this.

Each kit includes four long-length LED black light strips. This allows you to place one black UV black light on each wall of the room, resulting in a bright glow from all directions with no dark spots.

Step 1: Choose Your Decorations

The sky is the limit when it comes to black light party decorations. You can go as big or as small as you want. But we recommend starting with some basic black lights and ultraviolet (UV) LED bulbs. These will help create an otherworldly feel that your guests will love.

Once you have your lights sorted, it’s time to start thinking about what other decorations you want to use. Many people like to use neon paint to write words or draw designs on the walls. Others prefer to hang UV-reactive streamers or balloons. And don’t forget about the food! Glowing drinks and ultraviolet-themed snacks are always a hit.

Step 2: Pick Your Outfit

Your outfit is just as important as your decorations. After all, you want to look the part! We recommend going for something trendy but comfortable. Neon colors are always a good choice, but so are white and black. Just make sure that whatever you choose, it looks good under a black light!

Pair your outfit with fun accessories, like UV-reactive jewelry or neon sunglasses. And don’t forget to do your makeup! A bright eyeshadow or neon lipstick can make your look pop.

Step 3: Put together a playlist

No party is complete without a killer playlist. When putting together yours, try to focus on songs with lots of energy to get your guests moving. EDM, rap, and pop are usually good choices. But if those genres aren’t your thing, don’t worry – anything that gets people dancing will work!

As far as specific songs go, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston and “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” by Justin Timberlake are always crowd favorites.

Conclusion: There you have it! Everything you need to know to throw a unique black light party that your friends will love. Follow these simple steps, and you will have a glowing good time.


These fans are so cool! You can use them for any birthday or event that requires some flair, like a wedding. Use neon paper/cardboard and wrap around the ceiling fan’s blades to create different colors on each part; this makes it look more unique than just having one color throughout your party venue- plus, who doesn’t love rainbows?

If you want to go all out, wrap each blade with a different color and let them turn into a fantastic glowing whirlpool of light!


Making posters is an excellent method to adorn a black light party since they may be personalized with unique messages or topics, such as “Happy birthday Timmy!” or “Happy Halloween!”

To make your black light posters, simply purchase white, black, or fluorescence-colored poster paper and decorate party messages or images in neon paint. The color of the paint on a black piece of poster paper will stand out against the dark backdrop. If you use neon or white poster paper, not only will the image glow in addition to the paint, but it will also glimmer.


A black-light glow party is always incomplete without balloons, and a neon balloon bouquet is an ideal complement. Look for neon-colored balloons that aren’t labeled as such since they won’t glow unless they’re a bright fluorescent color.

We’ve found that the brighter a balloon glows, the better it will work. The colors usually become less bright as you blow air into the balloon because stretching the rubber also stretches the color. To prevent this from happening, use thicker or higher quality balloons.”
