Add more FUN to your party decorations!

Add more FUN to your party decorations!

For any theme that is meant to be exciting, scary, suspenseful, or mysterious, make sure you use black lights! They are great for garage or basement parties with your friends or a really good show for your Halloween party, too.

Add more FUN to your party decorations!

When I was young, I never thought I’d end up working with light bulbs for most of my career, and yet here I am doing just that.  The main reason I’m sure I never gave it a thought was that light bulbs were boring!  Kind of like band-aids or screwdrivers, light bulbs are something you need, but they just aren’t exciting.  I mean, where’s the cool factor? 

The answer is black lights.  =)  We’ve all been amazed riding through fun houses and haunted houses when our t-shirt glows neon purple, haven’t we?  They really seem to add a fun element to the experience, especially when the theme is intense or scary!  What tends to happen with blacklights is they emphasize lighter colors and deemphasize dark ones, and designers of amusement parks and Halloween attractions use this well.

Beyond the night clubs, theme parks, holiday events, and dark rides, black lights can easily be installed and used in your house or garage.  Fluorescent black lights are the most common, but there are standard screw-in models as well, so you can get ultraviolet light bulbs into almost any room, in any fixture.   Browsing through our black lights, I see circular fluorescent bulbs, mercury vapor spot light bulbs, tube-shaped incandescent bulbs, twist CFL bulbs, and u-shaped fluorescent bulbs, all in black light. 

Take a look and order some today, so they’ll be on hand for your next neighborhood party or for next Halloween.  Give them as gifts to your middle or high school kids (personal note:  I actually got one at that age and used it all the time.  Eventually, I had used it so much, it burned out!)  They really are a lot of fun and really add an exciting, mysterious, cool factor to your party décor. Or, they're equally cool when a middle school buddy comes over to hang out and play games.  ;)
