Here we have the ultimate guide for throwing an awesome glow-in-the-dark party with make your own neon!

Where to Throw a Glow in the Dark Party?

Glow-in-the-dark parties need to be held in dark places. If you are throwing the bash for younger kids who do not stay up late, use black plastic sheets to cover windows and other light sources. Otherwise, throw the party at night, preferably with a smaller moon, to avoid any light. The key is to have a dark place, so lights and flashing neon colours in your custom LED neon signs pop up and make the setting epic.

Do You Need Black Lights For a Glow in the Dark Party?

You have both choices with you, depending on how frequently you will throw such parties and what your budget is. Here are your two options-

  • Without a black light: It is not necessary that you get black lights for your glow-in-the-dark party. Many people only switch off white lights and still have a good time. If you are not getting black lights-
    • You can use decorations with phosphorescent lights in them. They are usually green in colour like the stars people stick to the ceiling. These lights absorb light during the day and slowly release them at night. 
    • You can also use glow sticks that emit colour because of the chemical reactions occurring inside their plastic casing.
  • With a black light: Putting up black lights will definitely level up your party. Since most neon signs for homes are fluorescent, they will pop brighter under the special UV lights. You can use a variety of neon decorations, lights, and paints to illuminate the room entirely. You can even wear neon clothes which will glow brightly in black lights. Most guides prefer getting black lights if you want to brighten the entire place.

Which Colours Should You Use in Your Glow in the Dark Party?

It is important to note that even though most neon-coloured objects glow, there are a few exceptions. Mostly shades of blue and purple are less likely to glow when you design your own neon sign. Your best bet is to go with fluorescent orange, green, yellow, and pink. White will have a blueish glow in black light.
