Five Glowing Cocktails That Will Keep your Party Lit

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

When you’re hosting a party, you want it to be memorable. A memorable party has multiple components: the music, the food, the venue, and of course, the drinks. Anybody can open up a case of beer or a handle of vodka and call it a night. Go above and beyond the norm by serving your guests something they’ve probably never seen before: cocktails that glow in the dark.

There are two ways to make a cocktail glow in the dark. You can serve the drink in a glass that lights up or you can add a glowing ingredient to the drink itself, like tonic water or vitamin B2. For extra glowing goodness, you can even do both. Below are five ways you can add a little bit of neon to your next get together – one that your friends will be talking about long after it’s over.

Pretty Pink Jell-O Shots

Choose any color you’d like, but for a bachelorette or lucky lady’s birthday, we suggest you go with hot pink. Mix a box of strawberry gelatin into a cup of boiling tonic water and stir it until all the gelatin powder has dissolved. Then, stir in another half cup of cold tonic water and a half cup of chilled vodka. Pour your mixture into Premier Glow’s Jello Glow Shot Injectors to add that extra pump to your party.

glo-shot-cate.jpg

Alien Appletinis

Class it up while keeping it fun by serving otherworldly appletinis in LED Black Tie Martini glasses. For the appletinis, mix one part lemon juice with 1.5 parts vodka, 3/4 part apple liqueur, 3/4 part apple juice, and 1/2 part simple syrup in a shaker with ice cubes and shake it up. For the martini glasses, just snap the two parts together and press the on/off switch to turn on the multi-color flashing. Strain your appletinis into your flashing martini glasses and serve.

Use the Force and Enjoy a Jedi Cocktail

Calling all Star Wars geeks: Premier Glow’s Glow Straws are the perfect light sabers for the drinks at your Star Wars celebration. To whip up a Jedi Cocktail, mix one part pineapple rum with one part coconut rum and 1/2 part blue curacao. Top with lemonade and enjoy.

To bring balance to the force at your party, make Dark Side Martinis by mixing 1.5 parts black or light rum with 3/4 part creme de cacao and garnishing with a few drops of black food coloring. Add some black food coloring to a tablespoon or so of sugar to make a garnish for the rims of your dark side martini glasses.

Forget your Troubles with a Mind Eraser

Indulge the coffee lover in you by mixing up this Kahlua-based favorite. Mix equal parts Kahlua, vodka, and tonic water and pour them over ice into an old fashioned or rocks glass. Stir with a tall straw and sip slowly — this cocktail is meant to be savored, not shot.

Find Inspiration from the Northern Lights

The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, is a natural light display in the Arctic Circle that occurs when there is a wind disturbance in the magnetosphere. It’s also a pastel-colored, glowing update to the traditional gin and tonic that’s sure to be a hit at your party.

To make this cocktail, add one part gin to two parts tonic water to a tall glass with ice cubes. Fill the glass the rest of the way with pink lemonade and give the beverage a good stir to mix all elements together. It’s pink, it’s sweet and citrusy, and it’s pretty enough to be the star of your girls’ night out.

Remix the Classics with Flashing Ice Cubes and Glasses

Never underestimate the power of classic cocktails. They’re classics for a reason — because they’re delicious. But there’s always room for improvement. If you’re thinking about serving the classics at your party, keep them cool without watering them down by using Premier Glow’s Flashing Ice Cubes. These waterproof ice cubes are available in four different colors to fit the mood of any party.

For example, it’s not a Cinco de Mayo party without margaritas. Make classic margaritas by mixing two parts tequila with one part lime juice and one part triple sec. Shake your ingredients with ice, then pour into Premier Glow’s Flashing Margarita Cups. Don’t forget the salt rim!

Feel like a Million Bucks by Making a Flashy Millionaire Cocktail

The Millionaire is a drink that’s been around since Prohibition. Bring yours into the 21st century by serving it in Premier Glow’s Flashing Whiskey Rocks Glasses. To make this expensive-sounding cocktail, mix equal parts sloe gin, apricot brandy, and Jamaican rum with a dash of grenadine and a lime’s worth of juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Give it a good shake, then pour them into your flashing whiskey glasses. Choose the flash mode that suits the mood of your party and get lit.

A Few More Tips to Make your Cocktails Glow

As we said above, there are two ways to make your cocktails light up: by serving them in LED glasses or by adding a mixer that lends itself to luminescence. Pouring your drinks into glowing glassware is simple. Let’s talk about mixers. There are two ingredients you can use to make your cocktails glow, quinine and vitamin B2. Quinine is found in tonic water and has a somewhat bitter taste and scent. It’s often paired with citrus-flavored liquors like lemon vodka. Vitamin B2 is found in many energy drinks and can be purchased in capsules. The benefit of using B2 capsules is that they have no flavor of their own, allowing you to add a glow to any drink. But don’t discount energy drinks — get creative and use their flavors to your advantage to create unique cocktails that keep your guests energized and light up the dance floor.

Above all, have fun!

13. Some Pep in his Step

If Dad is due for a new pair of shoes this year, skip the traditional spikes and give him the benefit of the newest BOOST technology from Adidas.  Adidas Adipower Boost Boa Men’s Golf Shoes enhance comfort and performance by giving the wearer better balance and negating that tired feet feeling after a long 18 holes.  While the BOOST technology itself is not new, it is new to golf gear.  The science behind it is pretty cool even gives an explanation for replacing shoelaces.  Prices range from $180 – $230 per pair.

14.  A Leg Up

The Footwedge Pro is admittedly a novelty golf gift, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the most used club in the bag, even if it’s just for the bottle opener on the bottom.  The grooved toe jam on the 52 degree angle club allows Dad to do what (lets face it) he was going to do anyway and just punt the ball onto the green.  Clubs are $79.99 each.

15.  The “Father” of all Koozies

This YETI  Colster has made it into more gift guides than Gary Player has Masters Tournaments for a reason.  It’s just that awesome.  Don’t let Dad be the guy in the golf cart with the warmest beer.  Although not scientifically proven, it’s likely that warm beer leads to more bogeys than topped shots.

Summer Party Potions……Pick Your Poison.

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Whatever you are celebrating this summer, the most important aspect of any party is who you share it with. Some of our celebrations, like graduation, revolve around an accomplishment of a friend or family member, others like bachelorette and wedding showers celebrate a new phase of life. And sometimes we are just out to celebrate sunny weather and irreplaceable friends with a summer pool or cocktail party.

It’s likely the reason for the party itself and the people you share it with will be enough to make the day memorable, but it never hurts to include elements that will add to the fun and compliment the spirit of the day. Sometimes nothing helps you get into the spirit, like spirits themselves, so let’s start with drinks.

Regardless of the time of day or party theme, a good cocktail selection can start any party off on the right foot and keep people talking about the night’s events for years to come. What goes in the cup is important but even the cup itself can add to the fun and even serve as a take home party favor for your guests. If you are looking for a cup that can also serve as a party favor for your event, try these flashing insulated mason jars.

masonjar

Mason jars have become a summer staple in the past couple years and this version is a new twist on a classic. Colors of lids are assorted and each jar comes with a matching straw. These are perfect to take in the pool because they are plastic and have a lid. You can see them clearly if they are sitting on the edge of the pool so there is less of a chance of them getting knocked over and you can keep track of whose is whose by using the different color lids and straws.

For larger parties, it may be easier to use something smaller as guests may go through several cups and variety of cocktails in an evening. The flashing disco cups are small enough for cocktails but offer the same flashing fun as the mason jars with seven flashing sequences and amazing lighting effects. For non alcoholic drinks, tumblers or coke glasses can give you the same visual effect in a larger glass.

If your party is themed around a certain type of cuisine or drink, barware can be a great way to continue that theme throughout the party. Are you having a fiesta? Go for the margarita glasses. What about a girls night or bachelorette where wine, champagne and martinis are the main event? Lighted Wine glasses, champagne flutes and brightly colored martini glasses all add to the fun and festivities while making sure your party stands out.

martiniglass

Choosing one color or one type of drink to serve as the theme of your evening may help to guide the rest of your plans for you and the party posse. A step further may be introducing an official drink recipe for the party or even teaching guests how to make it using this light up cocktail shaker.

If you are ready to kick things up a notch at a pool party or bachelorette weekend getaway, why not try The Glo Shot. It’s a glow in the dark jello shot that is easy to prep ahead of time for a full night of partying. This party trick combines the traditional jello shot syringe design with a crack to activate glow stick that will glow for hours on end. Half the fun of jello shots are the bright colors. If your party is at night or in a dark bar, The Glo Shot will illuminate those colors so you can’t miss them even in dimly lit areas.

The Glo Shot is 1.5oz and comes in 9 different colors to keep the party glowing. Unlike past versions of similar jello shot syringes, The Glo Shot dispenses easily with less mess and is refillable. Unlike plastic disposable shot glasses, The Glo Shot does not have to sit flat in the fridge for hours or be carefully transported on a level surface. The liquid is self contained within the syringe during cooling so it won’t leak or spill. Once the liquid has set, you can throw them in an ice bucket or cooler without going through the careful packing that jello shot cups require or wincing every time you turn a corner in the car on the way to the party.

thegloshotbanner

The design of The Glo Shot also allows you to layer jello shots if you want to combine multiple flavors into one syringe. Here are a few of our favorite jello shot recipes paired with the appropriate color of syringe. A good rule of thumb to get the right ratio and consistency to your jello shot is sticking to one flavor of jello, one alcohol, and one mixer. One packet of Jello will make about 15 Glo Shot syringes. For the best consistency and setting time, make sure the alcohol and the mixer are as cold as possible before you combine them with the gelatin powder and boiling water.

Blue – Make a Blue Hawaiian perfect for pool parties, lake trips, or luau themed bashes. Use blueberry jello, pineapple juice, and blue curacao.

Pink – Pink lemonade is a crowd pleaser at any girl’s night or bachelorette. Use pink jello, regular lemonade, and vodka.

Purple – Grape bombs start smooth and finish strong by combining a beloved flavor with a burst of energy. Use grape jello, redbull, and vodka.

Orange – Peach bellinis are a good compliment to an afternoon graduation party or family picnic. Use peach jello, mango juice, and champagne.

Yellow – Malibu pineapple is a light liquor option that is big on flavor. Use pineapple jello, coconut water, and Malibu rum.

So when picking your poison for your next summer party, think about setting the cocktail table or the shot selection a-glow. It gives your party goers something to talk about the next day…..and possibly something to blame their bad decisions on.

Little Golfer, Big Win

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

April 15th was a fun filled night in Georgia for a group the junior night golfers at Atlanta Athletic Club in John’s Creek.  The course puts on two night golf tournament events per year for its juniors, one in the fall and one in the spring.  The format is a scramble and junior golfers can enter for $15 per child.  

Families make a night of it by coming to the club early for dinner and getting decked out in glow necklaces once the sun goes down.  Christopher Moore, the Junior Golf Leader at the club, said a handful of the junior have actually been prepping for the tournament for months by taking extra lessons to prepare for the big event.

Though a good time was had by all, one junior golfer in particular will be talking about this event for years to come.  Jack Wright, pictured below, scored a Hole-in-One on a par 3 effectively winning the tournament for this team and making a life long memory.  Jack is the one in the blue giving the big thumbs up.  Good job Jack.  He is pictured with the other 3 members of his junior team: Spencer Schoenberg, Michael Mele, and Jack Hobgood.

Spencer Schoenberg - Michael Mele - Jack Wright - Jack Hobgood

We caught up with Jack to congratulate him on his accomplishment and ask him what he loves about night golf.

Jack, what is your favorite thing about Night Golf?

Probably just the whole environment of just getting to play at night in the dark only being able to see the ball and the hole.

How did it feel making a Hole-in-One during Night Golf?

It is an incredible feeling just hitting a winning chip in or a putt, but a Hole in One is not something you see every day and it was the coolest feeling ever.

What was your reaction to making the Hole-in-One?

Well before I even hit it when we were on the hole before, the sprinklers started turning on, so we started running to the next tee and my partner yelled “all we need is a hole in one” to win the tournament. I sprinted up grabbed a club and just hit it. When I was watching the ball it started off as a fade and then it started drawing back in and at first I thought it was a dead ball but when it started coming back in and I said “oh that is looking good.” As you know it was at night so all you could see were the ball and the hole, and I just saw it hit, bounce, and drop. I stood there for about 2 seconds trying to comprehend what just happened, and then we all just started sprinting to the hole screaming and yelling.

You have had 7 Holes-in-One on the Par 3 Course, where does the Night Golf Hole-in-One rank? 

Night golf is 1st by far. It is probably the coolest thing I have ever done.

Spring Collage

Atlanta Athletic Club will host another junior night golf tournament in the fall.  Jack and his teammates will be practicing with the hope of coming out on top again, even if lightning doesn’t strike twice with the Hole-in-One.  

Do you have stories to share about night golf events at your club?  If so we’d love to hear from you.

Glow Across The Sunflower State

Friday, May 13th, 2016

By now you may have heard of “The Happiest 5K on Earth” The Color Run. This year it has become the single largest event series in the world, taking place in over 225 cities across 40 countries this year. It may only be 5K, but with that kind of participation, those kilometers add up fast. A fun fact from their website: “Color Runners have run over 15,500,000 miles. That is 71.6 trips to the moon or 622 times around the world!”

While The Color Run has expanded this year to offer night races (The Color Run Night), it is only coming to three cities in the US during summer 2016. Not to worry though, you don’t have to miss out on any of the after dark action because The Blacklight Run and Foam Glow are stepping in to take it’s place. And good news, both are coming to Kansas this summer!

Foam Glow is first up and hits Bonner Springs on Saturday May 14th. Registration for this event is already 91% sold out. Pre-registration ended yesterday and was $20 per participant. If you are just hearing about this race, it’s not too late. You can still register today or tomorrow but the price goes up to $50 per runner. Likewise for VIP registration, tickets were $45 through the 12th then go up to $60 for last minute entries. If you are going to miss out on this weekends event, no worries because you will get another chance to glow in August when The Blacklight Run returns to Kansas on the 20th.

Sunflower 1

Just like the Foam Glow, The Blacklight Run Kansas has two tiers of registration, standard race entry and VIP entry. This summer they are also offering a “Girls Night Out” package to cater to small or large groups of parties wanting to register as a team. Included in every type of entry is a blacklight run T-shirt, a glow in the dark tattoo, race bib, glow pack and admission to the after party. The VIP registration is $45 and throws in extra glowing goodies like LED shutter shades, extra glow packs, a VIP shirt and access to the front lines via the VIP chute. Girls Night Out has similar perks to the VIP with a curated set of goodies to fit the theme.

Aside from the time frame, there are several points of differentiation between night races and your traditional daytime fun run. One look around the starting line of a The Blacklight Run will have you thinking, what’s going on here? Is it a dance party? A paint fight? A brightly colored parade of weirdos who reject traditional exercise? Yes, it’s all of those. It may not be a serious runner’s cup of tea, but that is kind of the point. Finally, a race for people who hate running, and mornings.

No need to bring your iPod either. These events come ready with multiple DJs, dance floors and plenty of bass to keep you moving throughout the race course. If dancing is your cardio, this event is for you. Consider the 5K portion of the evening your warm-up because these events are all about the after party. Don’t even thinking about packing it in and heading home once you’ve reached the finish line. Foam Glow and Blacklight runners are invited to stay and party into the early morning hours with food, beats, and blacklight EVERYTHING.

Sunflower 2

Normal races encourage participants to be courteous and practice basic runner’s etiquette. Not here. At Foam Glow and The Blacklight Run all of your fellow participants as well as a long line of volunteers are out to get you. Runners come armed with glow paint and bubble guns and volunteers introduce a new color of foam or UV glow paint at each kilometer marker. It’s all in good fun however, and you’ll be sure to hit the finish line glowing from head to toe and grinning from ear to ear.

Each of these races has a particular interest in giving back to children’s cancer research and sets aside a portion of your entry fee to be used as a donation to a children’s hospital charity. Some of their larger partners include St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, The Ronald McDonald House, Make-a-Wish Foundation, and The Special Olympics. However, Foam Glow Corporation allows each city to be involved in choosing its own charitable foundation and Kansas has selected Children’s Hospital as this year’s race beneficiary for both events. For more information on making donations, charitable giving, or how to submit your charity as a candidate to receive support click here.

Sunflower 3

If you are running for a cancer awareness cause of your own or to honor a specific patient, customizing your t-shirt is a great way to get your cause out there and make the race personal and memorable to you. If you really want to stand out, take your outfit to the next level by choosing a specific neon color for your team or creating a character. While making elaborate costumes is not required it certainly adds to the fun. Where else are you going to see a troop of hot pink butterflies racing against a pack of multicolored flashing glow worms.

Sunflower 4

Do you want to get in on the action but skip that run part? That’s ok too because Foam Glow and Blacklight Run are both looking for volunteers. The race requires that people be standing by at each mileage check point to douse the runners in a new color of neon foam and hand out more glow packs so that runners have a chance to attack each other as well. High school students ages 16 – 18 can even get credit for community service if their volunteer time is supervised by a parent, teacher, or club sponsor. If you would like to participate as a volunteer but also run the race, you are welcome to do that too. Set-up and registration starts as early as 4:30pm, so it’s completely feasible to be both a volunteer and a runner. For more information on sign up times and stations for the August 20th Kansas race at Bonner Springs click here.

Both the Foam Glow and The Blacklight Run are focused on fun over time, so come early, stay late and be prepared to make a memorable night out of this event. Anxious runners can start arriving as early as 6;00 pm, registration and pre-party begin at dusk (8:30 central time). The race kicks off at 9:00pm, and the after party glows on well into the night. So throw some glow in the dark laces in those nikes and grab a red bull. This is going to be a late one.

3…2…RUN! San Jose Summer Races

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

You may associate 5Ks with getting up way too early and digging out that activewear you use, well, not as often as you should. No more. The growing popularity of themed runs such as The Color Run, Foam Glow, Run With Zombies, Rock n’ Roll Marathon, and Color in Motion are coming to San Jose and are changing the face of fun runs.

Each of these races puts fun first and run second by offering plenty of distractions and attractions throughout the race course. The atmosphere at these events is electric and fast paced but you don’t necessarily need to bring your Nike’s to keep up. The Color Run, coming to San Jose on May 28th, for example does not post race times. It’s focus is on happiness, health, and individuality. That theme must be resonating with runners and fun runners alike because according to its website, The Color Run is now the single largest event series in the world, offering races in over 35 countries in 2015 and growing in 2016. Click here to register for The Color Run San Jose.

Color Run

Normal races encourage participants to be courteous and practice basic runner’s etiquette. Not the case with some of these fun runs. At The Color Run (May 28th) and Foam Glow (Oct 15th) all of your fellow participants are out to get you. Each checkpoint lets you celebrate your progress by introducing a different color to attack with. (Ex: 1K is yellow, 2K is blue)

Runners come armed with colored powder, glow paint and confetti cannons. Foam Glow even has actual cannons that shoot neon foam at runners as they trek through the course. Upon finishing, runners are rewarded with a backup supply of color and it’s an every man for himself free for all. Grab some ammo for your light up bubble guns because this party will be glowing on for awhile. It’s all in good fun however, and The Color Run has aptly named itself “the happiest 5K on earth” while Foam Glows website boasts “The best race after party in the world”.

It stands to reason that if you are going to act a little crazy at these events, you should have the crazy outfit to match. For the Foam Glow, happening in San Jose on October 15th, participants get very creative with their apparel, decking out tutus with glow sticks, covering themselves in glow bracelets and necklaces and don’t even think about showing up without a couple pairs of flashing glow stick glasses.

If you really want to stand out, take your outfit to the next level by choosing a specific neon color for your team or creating a character. While making elaborate costumes is not required it certainly adds to the fun. Where else are you going to see a troop of hot pink butterflies racing against a pack of multicolored flashing glow worms. Click here to register for Foam Glow San Jose.

No need to bring your iPod either. These events come ready with multiple DJs, dance floors and plenty of bass to keep you moving throughout the race course. If dancing is your cardio, these themed runs are for you.

Consider the 5K portion of the course your warm-up because these events are all about the before and after party. Don’t even thinking about packing it in and heading home once you’ve reached the finish line. Runners are invited to stay and party into the early morning hours with food, beats, and at Foam Glow, blacklight EVERYTHING.

Because these runs are focused more on their individual themes than on speed, the races are a good fit for every age and ability. Avid runners can enjoy themselves alongside families and park walkers. Strollers are allowed and for most of the runs, and some offer free entry to children under 5 with a paying adult participant.

While technically the paints, powders, and bubbles hurled around during the race are washable, it is recommended runners wear something they don’t mind leaving a few colorful souvenirs on, or in the case of Run With Zombies, coming to San Jose on October 29th, fake blood.

These themed fun run races are happening across the country, with events being hosted every weekend throughout the summer and fall. In San Jose alone there are over 10 themed races from May to November. They are becoming so popular that some cities are opting to host multiple races per year or making a long weekend out of it by hosting multiple days in a row. The Rock n’ Roll Marathon series is a 2 day event to benefit St. Judes that will hit San Jose October 1st and 2nd. Click here to register for Rock n’ Roll Marathon San Jose.

While the big race names are successful in gathering the most participants, local communities are quickly catching on and creating their own localized events around the same theme. Some of these runs give back to charity and some do not.

To add some personal meaning to this event, choose a cause you care about and theme your outfits or T-shirts around raising awareness for your charity’s name or mission. Use social media and race hashtags to let people know who you are running for. If you are really ambitious you could even ask local business to make a donation matching the cost of your race participation entry fee.

One look around the starting line of a themed race will have you thinking, what’s going on here? Is it a dance party? A paint fight? A zombie apocalypse? A brightly colored parade of weirdos who reject traditional exercise? Yes, the races are all of those things. It may not be a serious runner’s cup of tea, but that is kind of the point. Finally, a race for people who hate running, but love fun. So throw some glow in the dark laces in your running shoes, throw on your best superhero cape and hit the course in San Jose this summer and fall.

You may associate 5Ks with getting up way too early and digging out that activewear you use, well, not as often as you should. No more. The growing popularity of night runs such as The Color Run Night, The Blacklight Run, and The Glo Run are changing the face of fun runs, starting with the timeframe. Morning may be go time, but come nightfall, it’s Glow Time!

Each of these races takes place at night and offers plenty of glowing distractions along the way. The atmosphere at these events is electric and fast paced but you don’t necessarily need to bring your Nike’s to keep up. Participants get very creative with their apparel, decking out tutus with glow sticks, covering themselves in glow bracelets and necklaces, and don’t even think about showing up without a couple pairs of flashing glow stick glasses.

If you really want to stand out, take your outfit to the next level by choosing a specific neon color for your team or creating a character. While making elaborate costumes is not required it certainly adds to the fun. Where else are you going to see a troop of hot pink butterflies racing against a pack of multicolored flashing glow worms.

No need to bring your iPod either. These events come ready with multiple DJs, dance floors and plenty of bass to keep you moving throughout the race course. If dancing is your cardio, this event is for you. Consider the 5K portion of the evening your warm-up because these events are all about the after party. Don’t even thinking about packing it in and heading home once you’ve reached the finish line. Glo runners are invited to stay and party into the early morning hours with food, beats, and blacklight EVERYTHING.

Normal races encourage participants to be courteous and practice basic runner’s etiquette. Not here. At The Color Run Night all of your fellow participants are out to get you. Runners come armed with glow paint and confetti cannons.  It’s all in good fun however, and The Color Run Night has aptly named itself “The Happiest 5K on Earth”.

Each checkpoint lets you celebrate your progress by introducing a different color to attack with. (Ex: 1K is yellow, 2K is blue) Upon finishing, runners are rewarded with a back up supply of color and it’s an every man for himself free for all. Grab some backup ammo for your light up bubble guns because this party will be glowing on for awhile.

One look around the starting line of a Glo Run will have you thinking, what’s going on here? Is it a dance party? A paint fight? A brightly colored parade of weirdos who reject traditional exercise? Yes, it’s all of those. It may not be a serious runner’s cup of tea, but that is kind of the point. Finally, a race for people who hate running, and mornings. So throw some glow in the dark laces in your running shoes, put on half a dozen glow necklaces and hit the course this summer.

12 Creative Ways to Light Up Your Summer Parties

Monday, April 18th, 2016

Summer is almost here!

With the weather getting warmer and kids out of school there is nothing better than having the neighborhood over for a night-time extravaganza. Here are 10 ideas to help make any evening a glowing success!

Glow-Stick-Balloons

1. Glow Stick Balloons

This little trick will really help set the mood for any summer night-time party. Before getting balloons filled with helium, toss in one of our fat 1.5” glow sticks. Once the glow sticks are inside the balloons take them to the store and get them filled with helium. Tie these balloons all around your backyard to make for a bright and fun atmosphere. Up to twelve hours of glowing fun!

POPPIN-GLOWS

2. Glow Stick Popsicles

When the summer heat arrives, fight back by cooling off at night with a glow stick popsicle. To make these, replace your popsicle sticks with clear straws. We recommend using white grape juice or Sprite to make a translucent popsicle that really glows. (add in gummy bears for an extra twist) Once the popsicles are frozen and ready to eat, insert one of our 8” bracelet glow sticks into the straw and voila, you have yourself a bright treat to help cool off.

Water Balloons

3. Glowing Water Balloon Fight

There’s nothing more classic than cooling off with a summertime water balloon fight. Light things up this year by adding some of our 1.5” mini glow sticks to the balloons before filling them with water. Separate into teams using red and blue glow necklaces and let the games begin. You can also add a bonus challenge—the team that picks up the most glowsticks from busted balloons gets a special prize!

4. Glowing Ring Toss

This party game is easy and fun for kids of any age. Using our glow necklaces as rings and 10” yardage markers as posts you can make a fun and simple yard game that’s sure to be a summer hit. Divide into teams using the different colored necklaces. Stick the markers into your yard and let the rings fly.

Glow Bubbles

5. Glow in the Dark Bubbles

This trick is sure to add some life to your summer nights. Using a pair of gloves, cut open one of our 12” glow sticks and shake the contents into a bottle of bubbles. Give the bubbles a stir and there you have it, night bubbles that are sure to impress. Once you have the glowing bubbles there are a million different ways to make different sizes and types of glowing bubbles!

Sabers

6. DIY Lightsabers
All you’ll need for this project is duct tape, black sharpie and a few of our 16” soft flexible foam glow sticks. Wrap the base of the foam glow stick in two strips of duct tape and decorate the handles like a true jedi. We carry five different colors of these so you can choose to be the light side or the dark side. Just bend the foam to activate up to 12 hours of lightsaber fun.

Ceiling Fan

7. Glowing Ceiling Fan

This simple idea adds a spark to any party. All you’ll need to do is tape a few different colored 10” glow sticks to your standard ceiling fan with clear tape and flip the switch. This mesmerizing light show adds a new spin to any summer night. Bonus: Add different colors to different fans and it makes for a completely different look!

Glow ladder

8. Night Ladder Golf

Give one of your favorite yard games a little night-time twist. For this game you’ll need a ladder golf set, some Pro Glow night golf balls, some nylon rope and 10” glow sticks. First, drill a 3/8” hole through each golf ball—offset the hole so the glow stick will still fit. Be very careful on this step to make sure your golf balls are properly secured to a clamp when drilling through them. Cut your nylon rope into 20” sections and run it through the newly drilled holes. Tie a knot on each end of the rope. After bending the 10” glow sticks to activate them, fasten them to your ladder golf set using a few zip ties. You can use a few different colors to mark the different levels. Insert activated glow sticks into each golf ball and you’re ready to play. A simple night-time yard game that is sure to deliver hours upon hours of fun.

Capture

9. Capture the Glow Flag

This night-time twist on a classic summer game makes for an incredibly fun evening for the kids. After separating the kids into two teams, simply tie a bandana to one of our 15” light sticks and give each kid a red or a blue glow necklace. Once the glowing flag is activated let the games begin. Make sure you have kids wear glowing necklaces for their different teams so no one runs into each other.

Wiffle

10. Night-Time Wiffle Ball
There’s nothing that screams summer more than a good game of wiffle ball. With this night-time twist you’re sure to have a hit for your next party. Just insert some of our 8” glow bracelets into the center of the wiffle ball and swing for the fences. You can even cut a small hole in the bat and put in one of our 12” glow sticks to make for an extra bright time.

Bowling

11. Night Bowling
Create your own backyard bowling alley for any time of day! First, put our 4” glow sticks into some partially filled water bottles. Next, line them up and grab one of our massive 36” inflatable beach balls and you’re ready to go. Bowling on any type of yard that’s sure to be a total blast.

Glow Cups

12. Decorate your Dinner

There are so many fun options to make a meal glow. From glow stick straws to light up cups and ice cubes. You can even hide some of our glow sticks in the ice bucket to make for an amazing drink bucket.

With some of these great ideas and the huge variety that we offer of glowing decorations—you’re sure to have some incredible summer nights. If you think of any other creative ways to use our products to add some life to your party let us know in the comments below!
