Glow parties are always fun themes. You can do so many different things with this theme, such as glowsticks, glow paint, and glow in the dark items. You can make t-shirts that glow in the dark, there are raves where you get covered in glow paint and then just dance the night away. Or you could just go with the classic, take a bunch of glow sticks and wear them while doing normal party stuff.
Before you can do any of this though, you have to get glow party invitations out to people so it’s not just you standing in a room along with glowing items. That would be a little awkward.
DIY Glow Party Invitations
One of the biggest trends nowadays is DIY invitations, well DIY anything really. Here are just a few ideas that could get you started on coming up with your own ideas to make your invitations for your party.
Glow in the Dark
For one of the DIY ideas for Glow Party invitations, you can find a template for a glow party invitation online. Then you just have to download it, edit in the details of your party, and print off the invitations.
For the real DIY part of this, you need to get puffy paint that glows and then trace the parts of the invitations that you want to make glow. Allow the paint to dry before you insert into envelopes, and then mail. The paint will help add the cool edge to this invitation that not everyone else would think of.
With these invitations, you can help set the mood for your party before they even arrive. First, find free downloadable invites that you would like to use, then you can save it and edit it with all the details for your party. This part is just like the last idea, but what makes it DIY and different is what you do next.
Get the guests invited excited by adding a glow stick in the envelope with the invitation. It will add a little excitement to the invitation, but you have to make sure that when you add the glow stick you crack it so it’s already all lit up for the guest when they open up the invite. Just don’t crack the glow stick until right before you seal up and mail out the invitations.
