Party Recap

Each year, we have a big party for our girls. This year, we wanted to keep the number of guests down so we decided to have a slumber party. I thought a "blacklight" or "Glow" party would be a great theme.


Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    Cup cakes that glow in the dark.

  • Party Favors

    Neon shirts, necklace, crochet fingerless glove, socks and led sunglasses.

  • Activities / Games

    Art project, Wii U and a movie.

  • Budget

    Around $500

  • Best Moment

    The art project and everyone's reaction when they walked into the house.

  • What People Ate

    hot dogs, PB&J and chicken nuggets. Couldn't find any good eats that glow.

  • What People Drank

    Capri Sun. For an adult party, you can serve any drink with Tonic and it would glow.

  • Set up and Tips

    We originally bought the screw in type of black lights from Home Depot. They worked but then my husband found a really good price on craig's list for the 48" fluorescent bulbs and once they were installed they made black glow :) Recommendation: Don't skimp on the lights. I bought a $8 flashlight on amazon that had a blacklight. Took it to the store to help identify things that glow. Remember, neon doesn't mean it will glow. So be careful.
