Lighting Ideas for Your Party

Lighting is one of the most important decorations for any party.  The lighting creates the ambience and feeling for the party and can deliniate areas for dancing, romancing, eating and talking.  Here are some great ideas for lighting your party space:

Ambient lighting is your number one priority - Start by thinking about the mood you want to set for the space.  What is the overall tone of the party?  Soft and romantic, jovial and fun, or elegant and chic?  Think about your space and the lighting in it - does it have chandeliers, down lights or is it a marquee with lighting you create yourself?  If it’s a big bash, it may be best to bring in professionals for your lighting, particularly if you love the idea of spotlighting different areas of your venue, and you also know that a lighting professional will check that there is enough safe power to create the lighting you want.

You can tint the lighting for pretty effects - Don't think that light has to be stark white.  It can be tinted softly to suit the mood and room.  Yellow light suits an outdoor and summery location best and pretty pink tinting flatters indoors and romantic spaces.

Think about different times during your party - at the beginning of your party, there may be enough natural light not to need any artificial interference.  But as the sun goes down, you will need to add more and more light as the natural light fades.  Think about the timing and plan for subtle changes.

Paper lanterns can transform any venue into a party space - Pretty paper lanterns in many colours, shapes and sizes can create ambient light without breaking the bank.  Paper lanterns can be lit with an LED light or strung with fairy lights to create a really beautiful effect.  Think about stringing the lights across the top of a marquee, clustering the lanterns in the middle of the room in place of a chandelier, or letting the lights float from trees for an outdoor party.

Candles are the quintessential party decoration - Candles in many shapes, sizes, colours and styles can create the most beautiful lighting for your party, whether indoors or out.  Firstly, check with the owner if you are allowed to use candles as many indoor venues won't allow naked flames.  If you can't, think about LED lights or lanterns in their place.  Candles can either stand on their own if they are decorative in form or colour, or can be placed into pretty vases or votive holders to shield them from the wind and suit the theme of the party.  Browse the beautiful range of wedding candles and candle holders to buy online.  Think outside the square with your candles and perhaps use driftwood or shells to hold candles on your centrepieces at a beach party or large hurricanes filled with vine leaves at a sophisticated event.

Luminaria or Candle Bags make stunning walkways - Lead your guests into your event with stunning luminaries or candle bags lighting the pathway.  Pink Frosting sells an exclusive range of Wedding Luminaria which includes the candles and bases in many different colours and styles to suit your wedding theme.  Light the luminaries just as dusk falls and you will create a magical space for your party.
