Neon Parties are the New Black
We could all use an injection of colour during the winter months to lift our spirits, boost flagging energy levels and reignite an enthusiasm for life. We are great fans of using colour in abundance. If you are too, read on and find out how you can throw the brightest bash of the year!
Step Back in Time
As many of us parents know, the neon rainbow is synonymous with the 1980’s and the dubious fashion choices which went along with it! (I’m talking turquoise and pink shell suit with matching bum-bag… thanks Mum!) Punchy pop slogans can perfectly sum up the decade which celebrated the bold and brash. Give your kids a taste of what our childhood was like with these ‘Zap’ party toppers and party masks.
Crank up the nostalgia by creating a dressing up box – which the kids and children of the 80’s should enjoy in equal measure! Raid eBay, the fancy dress stores, or your local charity shop for some bright wigs, loud shirts and patterned leggings. Or, stock up on neon fabric pens and ask your guests to wear plain white tops, so you can jazz up your own outfits. You could ask everyone to sign one special shirt for the birthday girl or boy to keep as a memento. Also, make sure you get the polaroid ready to snap all the action as it happens. Display all of the night’s polaroids on a pin board, or a string washing line for a fun and impromptu party centerpiece!
In the Neon Party Spotlight
If neon isn’t your bag, but you still want to stand out, we have bold brights a plenty in our online shop. Be confident with your styling and mix and match a range of colours until you find your perfect blend. It’s easy to pick up all you could possibly need for your party across our online shop, you can even shop by colour. Remember it’s not just for the kids, this party theme lends itself to revellers of all ages.
Our wonderland theme will bring all the madness and party mania which you would expect from Alice’s adventures to your party table in a burst of colour. Bring on the bright with our wooden cutlery with neon coloured handles and combine this with our multicoloured or ombre ranges for a clash of colour combinations. Does your party star love all things tropical? These orange, green and yellow chair tassels will add a fun flash of colour. Take a trip under the sea with these zingy blue drinking cups from our mermaid theme. Pinch from the Paw Patrol theme with either of these bright green and orange napkins.
Glow on & on
When your party is over, the neon body paint has been washed off and the highlighter pens are back in the home office, keep the 80’s theme going with a movie night. Pick from generational gems such as E.T, The Land Before Time and Who Framed Roger Rabbit – you never know, this may just give you the inspiration you need for your next party theme.
