The Neon Theme
Extend your glow in the dark party by letting everyone know the party has a full neon theme. Neon events are gaining popularity, and girls especially love to dress up in neon clothes to stand out. Simply add the line "dress in all white / neon colors" to your invitation or Facebook event page. With enough blacklights, everyone will glow, boosting the atmosphere and mood to your party!
Neon decorations are not required, but help light up a glowing feel to the dark party. Neon items are very good at glowing under blacklights, this helps mke your glow in the dark party even more effective. Neon hats are a great way to help everyone stand out and enjoy the festivities of the neon party. Often times, a blacklight does not make everyone glow, but with neon decorations and neon hats, everyone will light up like the best glow clubs.

Blacklights are important. I have found that Walmart has the most affordable price for blacklights that are both effective and bright. Do not buy the blacklight bulbs that screw into a regular socket. These only filter out the blacklight from a regular incandescent bulb, they barely glow in black light. Amazon also has great deals on flourescent blacklights. Ask your friends and neighbors if they have any extra, nearly everyone has a blacklight so you may be in luck.
Make sure you have at least 2 feet of blacklight per 100 square feet of dance area. Since blacklights are not typically that great at casting regular light, you need a decent amount of them to light up an area. Strobe lights and color changing LED bulbs are also very good at helping light up an area.
Day Glow Theme
Consider extending your glow in the dark party with a day glow theme. Day glow paint parties are a bit harder to plan, but are probably one of the most fun events that you could ever host. A day glow paint party consists of ordering neon flourescent paint, and asking guests to wear all white. You cover an entire room or backyard with plastic wrap to prevent paint from damaging any goods. Everyone is handed paint when they walk in, and they throw paint on each other. You need extra blacklights to light up the area.
Rave accessories are popular at any neon party. Rave accessories include neon hats, neon sunglasses, glow in the dark sunglasses, and anything that a raver would use to stand out. More often than not, rave gear is neon and flourescent, so it is perfect for a glow in the dark party, because the blacklights will help make it stand out.Consider looking into to neon party supplies and offer free giveaways to all guests.
