Here’s what Patricia said about the party- “This Neon themed party was great because of its colours and light effects. The children had lots of fun with the flashing ice cubes and climbing the aerial fabric. We also used a hair gel and a coloured hair spray for both the invitation and at the party. The use of fluorescent colours made the party bright and happy.”

This is what Abigail said about planning the party- “For my daughter’s 11th birthday we took the party to the local Roller Rink. My daughter wears these plastic neon green glasses just about everywhere we go, so clearly she’s got a thing for neon.
This is the first time I’ve had any of my kid’s birthdays at a venue, and even though it was just a touch tricky on the set up, it can be done, and it is SO worth it! We knew we would be working with picnic style tables, so we decided to style three, separate, fully functional tablescapes.
Since the party was at 10 am, we wanted to give these kids some fuel to skate the day away. We created neon popcorn boxes, filled them with cereal, and added a cute little sticker round to tie it all together. Fruit Skewers and mini muffins were the biggest hit of the day…until dessert. We also offered yogurt parfaits in cute little containers with a washi tape adornment. We went with mini birthday pennant banners for the tables to keep the decor centralized.
Of course this table is always the most popular at any party! We are particularly excited about our handmade Pushcake Stand… this was a huge hit and so easy to make! Homemade Brownie pops flew off the tray (we think its because of the super cute glitterstix). Roller skate shaped rice krispie treats with neon sprinkles was easily one of my favorite things. For party favors, we sent the kiddies home with neon shoelaces and boxes filled with neon sour gummy worms.. yummmm! Each table was sprinkled with handmade neon confetti and it really completed the entire look of the party.
We offered orange juice, water, and starbucks bottled coffees for the parents to enjoy. Neon washi tape on the straws doubled as flags as well as a spot for everyone to write their name on.

Amber said this about planning the party- “I had so much fun planning this party for my daughter’s 11th birthday. Nearly a year ago, she found an idea for a Neon ‘Color Blast Party’ in an issue of the American Girl Doll Magazine and was immediately inspired. She also loves dancing, so when I suggested we make it a neon glow-in-the-dark girls’ dance party, she was sold.
Before the party started, we created a “club” atmosphere with black lights, a large rotating disco ball, and, of course, lots of loud music.
When the guests arrived, they were greeted with a selection of neon accessories to put on: socks, headbands, plastic bracelets, flashing rings, disco ball necklaces, and glow stick bracelets. There were also some extra white and neon clothes hanging up for anyone who needed them.
Once the guests were completely glowing, each girl had her picture taken (to be printed out during the party and then made into color pop art).
After that, the girls sat down for dinner. To eat, there was rainbow pizza and neon orange Cheetos. To drink, there was orange crush and lemon water (with lemons that were soaked in neon food coloring). For dessert, there were color blast cupcakes, luminescent cotton candy, multicolor brownie bites, neon sugar cookies, fluorescent push pops, energizing smoothie shots, and of course, neon birthday cake.
After eating, the girls danced, had their faces painted, colored and cut own their own color pop art photos, and had their hair wrapped with colored thread.
As the girls left, they filled goody bags with candy, including rainbow lollipops, candy dots, gummy frogs, gumball filled gumball tubes, colorful candy canes, hot pink wrapped buttermint creams, and sour gummy dots. There were also some shimmery silver pencils.
All of the girls had a blast. It was definitely a birthday party to remember!”
