    Wow! What a fun party!! Can you share on how you made the backdrop? Also how did you make the cotton candy light out? Thanks!!

      For the backdrop, we hung up a simple black bed sheet. Then we covered it with dozens of paper rosette fans made from neon cardstock and hot glue!

      For the cotton candy, I put glow in the dark bracelets inside paper cotton candy cone holders and then filled the cones with white cotton candy. So simple! Once the black lights were on, the cotton candy glowed!

    Amazing party!!! I’m planning my son’s 9 years party as glow in the dark too…. I’d like to if your friend had a black light or just no light at all?? Thanks so much. Symone – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    I stumbled across this post today while searching Pinterest for inspiration …and saw my infamous NEON Invitation and just about hollered! This party was amazing and I’m glad to have played a small part in Hadleigh’s special day : )

      Thanks, Latisha! When I saw that invite on Etsy, I knew it was THE ONE, so thanks for making it happen (and for such a quick turnaround time!) :).

    For everything to glow did you just change out the normal lightbulbs in your house with black light ones or did you rent a big black light to shine every where?

    What an amazing party!! My daughter is turning 8 in June and wants this party! Clearly, this was a tremendous amount of work and it sure paid off. I am so excited to use your ideas. I hope I can do them justice.

    Hi Kara,

    Do you know where the pink and blue table runner came from? Thanks.
