Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Party lighting has great significance in decoration of the venue, especially during evenings. Whether it is a small birthday celebration or a big wedding event, perfect lighting can enhance the beauty of the venue significantly. Good knowledge of lighting with a simple touch of creativity is what all required to make an impressive party lighting. Below are few tips that may help you while setting up the party lighting.

Match the color of lighting with the party theme: Many of the parties organized these days are based on a specific theme. In contrary to regular parties, these themed parties follow a similar pattern in every aspect, be it decoration, costumes, food or party favors. Hence, lighting in these parties should be in accordance with the theme. To make the party more attractive, pick the prominent colors of the theme (it can be a single or a combination of colors) and use them in lighting various areas of the venue.

Proper combinations for dance floor: The dancing area in the party needs high attention while decorating the venue. Differential lighting which uses various colors in proper combination is the perfect option for highlighting the dance floor. Few lighting objects like disco balls, strobe lights, back lights and glow strings can be used to illuminate the dance floor. These kinds of lighting items create a disco inspired atmosphere, which lifts-up the mood of the dancers.

Special attention to center piece lighting: Center piece is the most highlighted area of a party. It can be a table to place the cake or can be a buffet table. Since, these pieces are the center of everyone’s attraction, they need special illumination. The intensity of light used in lighting these pieces should be more and the colors used should be different from the remaining area. Use battery-powered lights, LEDs or glow sticks to add elegance to the center piece. You can also highlight this area with candles to give an ethnic look.

Sparkling lights on trees and bushes: If you are celebrating the event outdoors, use natural things like trees and bushes in making up the lighting. Use long glow sticks to wrap around the trees to make them look beautiful. You can also use small glow sticks or glow necklaces to make trees or bushes look beautiful.

Glowing barware: You don’t need any extra decoration for your food court, if you use glow barware. Just get a couple of varieties like glowing jars, glasses, straws, stirrers, trays, ice cubes, wine glasses, beer mugs, etc. and make sure that the light they emit matches the color of your entire decoration. Food and drinks when served in glow barware looks special and attractive.

Proper selection of lighting sources not only matches well with the party theme, but also helps in cutting down the party expenses. With some innovative ideas and inexpensive lighting sources, such as glow sticks, you can definitely create a special environment in your party.
