Bright Ideas For A Neon Glow In The Dark Party!

We are SUPER excited about today’s Sweet 16 idea, a glow in the dark party! From seeing the huge trend in neon this past year with everything from clothes to shoes, home decor, even weddings,  we KNEW this would be a killer party theme too. Kicking the neon theme up a notch with a glow in the dark neon party is an even lovelier idea! We are just smitten for this idea. Everything gets better when it is glow in the dark like bowling, miniature golf, 5 K marathons and parties are no exception! A glow in the dark party is an awesome idea for a sweet 16 because of how funky and cool everything is.  You really can’t get any cooler than glow In the dark invitations, decorations, food and awesome neon outfits for a party. Not to mention how awesome it is to use glow sticks and glow in the dark paint in almost every party detail imaginable. Our minds are just buzzing with ideas! We have rounded up our favorite neon glow in the dark party ideas and can’t wait to show yo how cool this party can be!

  1. Awesorme, so love it!

  2. Hi im cassidy in turning 13 in a couple of months i was wondering where do i get all of this stuff for a glow in the dark party and where can i have it cuz i dont want it at my house.

    • I hope I’m not too late. I’m turning 13 too and having a glow party. I’m doing it in my backyard but if you’ve got it in the budget, what about a bowling alley? Try looking around at Pary City or Walmart for glow stuff: that’s where my mom and I found the most stuff.

    • Cool happt early 13th I used to have a best friend named Cassidy

  3. anymore ideas

  4. A truly adorable party! My favorites are the invitations and cotton candy. We recently had a fabulous Glow in the Dark Make over party for my seven year old daughter, so much fun.

  5. AWESOME party idea, so much fun!!!

  6. Need to order paty supplies

  7. I love the glow lanterns, that’s the best tutorial I’ve found. You should check out the free neon printable party invitations I made.

      Hello, I am loving all the idea that I am getting – I am in the starting phase of preparing for a boy/girl 16th Birthday Party in March and we are doing a Glow in the Dark Party as well. Would you be able to send me the link for your free printable neon invitations? Also, Emily would you be able to send pics for better ideas for older party’s? So far I am creating a candy station and a picture station.

      Thank you any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    I love the glow in the dark theme! ! My question is how do you set up the black lights so the decorations will glow?

  10. Indira Williams says:

    Hi Emily cann I would like to talk to you about my sweet sixteen next year for some ideas. When have the time can you please reply back thank you.

  11. I remember from college when doing a party on a budget, we used detergent to paint things and it worked just like glow- in-the-dark paint under a blacklight. I don’t know if the brand matters and I would assume it might be more budget-friendly than a specialty glow-in-the-dark paint. Just throwing it out there! =)

  12. You can also get black lights as lightbulbs

  13. Hi! I’m interested in having a glow party as well! I was wondering what activities you would do at a glow party?

  14. Justine says:

    Yeah what activities would you do, like Kate asked

  15. There all all sorts of ideas but here are some of our favorite- Use glow sticks in balloons and shoot them through light up hoops. You can also get a glow stick and try to shoot it through glow in the dark soccer cones. Filled water bottles with water and glow sticks and stack them as bowling pins. Have a glow in the dark face painting station. Just to name a few.

  7. […] A super fun party trend right now involved lots of neon colors, and hosting at dusk so as it gets dark, the party starts to glow! Tables set with glow sticks and neon colors under black lights, along with glow in the dark party games, and a food table set to show off its colors in the dark is a super fun and unique party idea. Hand out glow necklaces and bracelets to guests as they arrive at dusk, turn out the bright lights and turn on the black lights for a night of glowing fun. A neon cake, or even glow in the dark cupcakes are a must, along with food stuck with neon toothpick flags on stands lit from below with glow sticks. More glowingly great ideas can be found here.
