Nontoxic and nonflammable
Glow necklaces are very safe to use. The chemicals used in them are nontoxic. Even if the chemical comes in contact with the skin due to any leakage in the tube, it causes no harm.

Look great with other glow products

How to Set the Mood of Your Party

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

The success of any party lies in the lively participation of guests. The guests should leave the venue, happy and satisfied. Being courteous may not be enough always to make your party rock.

You need to get them into the party mood, which can be a difficult task. Each of guests will be in a different mood based on what went through them that day. If their day went fine, they will be in a good mood. But if they had a rough day at work, a clash in the traffic, an argument with spouse, or difficulty in finding parking lot, they cannot help but bring all that aggression along with them. They may be present in the party, but cannot involve wholeheartedly.

Some guests on the other hand, may be too timid to join the party. It can be a big challenge to deal with guests with all these mindsets and get them into the party mood. Here are few things which may help you set the mood of your party:

Music: Nothing can be as refreshing as great music in the party. There is an amazing relation between music and emotions of the people. Music is simple and subtle, yet it is a powerful way to change the party mood. If you want to trigger a wave of refreshing mood among your guests, start with some scores of pleasant music. Pick the scores based on the spirit of your party, environment and mood of the guests. Music is more effective when played at certain levels of volume and bass. So make sure to have somebody to constantly control the music player.

If you want to have an energetic dance environment, have strobe lights, lasers, fog machines and may be some video synchronized with your music. Make sure every guest is invited to dance. But do not push people who are unwilling to participate.

Lighting: If you are planning to arrange the party in the evening, consider proper lighting. Lighting gives life to a well-organized party. Your choice of lighting should align with the occasion, theme and venue of the party. However, too much lighting can spoil the mood of the party.

Decoration: You do not have to spend a fortune to have an elegant party decoration. Select an impressive theme and match the décor of your party with it. Whether it is a birthday celebration or a wedding reception, your decoration should be able to create an ambiance that matches the occasion.

Food: Food plays a major role in making a party memorable. People generally remember the food served in the parties. Just include a variety of delicious dishes and watch the magic it creates. Remember, delightful presentation of the food is also important. You should not overlook it.

Party favors: Don’t restrain the role of your party favors just to the gifts given as gesture of thanks. Chosen wisely, you can use them to take your party to the next level. Gifts make people happy. Use your creativity and choose gifts that bring joy to your guests. Surprising guests with party favors is one of the best ways to get them into the party mood.

Fragrance: Fragrances help in sparking the mood with an instant sensory pleasure. A good fragrance relaxes the brain and makes it calm and stable. Once you are done with the party arrangements, give a final touch with a good fragrance. Some natural fragrances like rose, jasmine and sandal work pretty well for all kinds of parties.

Many people in their attempt to create the right party mood spend on unnecessary things. They end up making the party look highly pompous instead of creating the required feel. Take care of the few basic elements of the party; the mood in the party automatically sets in.
