Light a Birthday Party!

How do I light a birthday party? Do you have birthday lights?

We hear these and similar questions quite often.

It’s easy to add lights to a birthday party.  Here are a few of our favorite ways to makes someone’s special day brighter!

Make a wall of light

We installed a set of curtain lights behind sheers and a great big wall of iridescent streamers in front of the sheers.   Banners round out the look.

Perfect for Sweet 16 or Princess Party.

Add color and glass blocks!

Add pink LED Christmas lights to a glass block to light up the cake stand! Glass blocks make great risers for lanterns and floral arrangements as well!
