What is Black Light?
When there is black light in the room (otherwise known as ultraviolet light, UV light or fluorescent light) certain items have the ability to glow with its reflection. It adds another dimension to the scene. Glow products glow brighter in black light.
Black light (or ultraviolet light) is not some crazy man-made invention.

And a black light can make your room into a dream you'll never want to wake up from...
Black light party ideas
Using glow products at your black light party:
There are lots of fluoro products that clearly glow under a UV light - glowsticks being the obvious one.
But there are other things that are less obvious, and if you want to decorate your room to become fluoro-magical then you should really get a small portable black light. These even come in a size that can fit on your keyring. It's fun to hold a black light over everything you see and discover how it would look under ultraviolet light...
TIP: Some products that look fluorescent in the day aren't actually all that fun under a black light. Some products look deadly dull by day (like white string), but under black light they'll amaze and entice you into a whole new world!

If you don't want to decorate the whole of your room in black light, just decorate the toilet. The smallest room in the house is also the most beautiful, it's the interior decorator's friend! A toilet or bathroom is tiny enough to decorate quickly, and decorating it with passion will bring unexpected delight to your guests. Paint it black, stick in a UV lamp, have glowsticks, have clear glass bottles arranged with water saturated with UV liquid inside, have glow in the dark stars on the ceiling - have EVERYTHING.
