#1. Choose the right location
The first step in throwing a black-light party is choosing the perfect location. The location is crucial if you want to host an outdoor party – you'll need to find a well-lit space with enough room for all your guests.If you're hosting an indoor party, you'll have more flexibility. But it's still essential that you choose a space that is dark and with enough wall space for decorations.
#2. Make the space completely dark
You can make any space into a dark room with just the right amount of adjustment. Aim to darken your surroundings, so only glow sticks or black-lights are visible. To achieve this dark effect, use curtains or blinds to block out external light. You can also press the aluminum foil against the surface of windows, so it covers up most of the glass. Pressing the foil against your window's surface will help you create a seamless look without any jagged edges or bumps.
#3. Decorate with black light-friendly materials
Knowing what colors glow under black light is important. Black light paints, inks, and fabrics are all great for black light parties. If you're unsure what to use, opt for light blues, purples, and greens – these colors look good under black light and won't clash with your other decorations.
#4. Use fluorescent materials
In addition to black light-friendly materials, you can also use fluorescent materials to add some extra flair to your party. Glow sticks, necklaces, bracelets, and other accessories will light up under black light and add a fun, festive feel to your party.
#5. Serve fluorescent food and drinks
The best way to complete the black-light party experience is by serving fluorescent food and drinks. These can be anything from neon punch to glowing Jell-O. If you're feeling creative, you can make your own neon drinks and snacks. Otherwise, plenty of recipes online will help get you started.
#6. Play black light-themed games
