Glow in the Dark Party

Are you looking for food ideas for your glow in the dark or black light party? Well, the party starts right here.

Glow in the dark drinks are easy to do. But putting together glowing food to serve to party guests is a bit of a challenge.

Never fear, though. There are tons of great food suggestions here.

Below there is a list of edible foods that glow and foods that look very bright under a black light. You will also find a recipe for glow in the dark salad and desserts.

These food ideas are great for kids, teens, and adult black light parties or anytime you want to serve really cool food.

Flip on the black light, get out the glowing food, and get ready to throw an awesome blacklight party.

There are several foods that will glow under a black light. Here is a list of food that will glow along with the color it appears.

 

Foods That Glow

cooking oil (yellow)
olive oil (orange)
honey (golden yellow)
caramel (golden yellow)
maple syrup (golden yellow)
vanilla ice cream (yellow)
yogurt (yellow/pink, the tint will depend on the color of the yogurt)
freshly sliced orange (bright orange)
freshly sliced lettuce (red)
freshly sliced peppers (red)

 
Some other freshly cut fruits and vegetables will have a red glow under the black light. Some will appear brighter than others. When the vegetables that glow are cooked or coated with oil, especially olive oil, they will glow more brightly. The glowing liquids can be used as toppings for other foods. One example would be, serve pancakes with glowing yellow maple syrup.

 

 

Other Suggestions
rice
marshmallows
some cereals (ex. rice krispies)
coconut
sugar
salt
parmesan

 
Some of these white foods can be used as toppings or garnishes for dishes. You can sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of the foods, the bits will be very bright, then you can sprinkle powdered sugar on top of desserts for extra glowing effects as well.

 

By the way, serving food on a white plate will enhance the bright white effect of black lights.

 

Glowing Desserts 

 

Make glowing Jello. Substitute tonic water for regular water in the Jello recipe. Add a bit of sugar. The tonic water can give the Jello a bitter taste and the sugar just covers that up. Use fun containers for the Jello or cut out shapes with a cookie cutter.

 
Whip up cupcakes with glow in the dark frosting or icing. The process is pretty simple. You just make your cupcakes (or cake) and ice them like normal. Then you put them in the freezer to harden the icing to give it a glowing glaze.

 
Serve Rice Krispies Treats. Since marshmallows and the Rice Krispies are both white, this will stand out brightly in the black light. You can add other glowing things to them for decoration. Swirl honey or caramel on the top for glow. Shredded coconut or Powdered sugar will look pretty on top.

 
Mix a glowing milkshake. Create a glowing gold yellow milkshake with vanilla ice cream and coconut milk. Pour caramel syrup on top for bonus glow power.

 

Serve glowing eats to your very amazed guests

5 Ways to Have a Successful Surprise Party!

The best surprise parties are well thought-out, involve only a few people in the beginning stages, and, clearly are a total secret! With the following guide, your guest of honor will remember this party for a long time.

 

Here are a few Ways to Plan a Great Surprise Party

 
Shhhhhh!– First rule of thumb is to not say a word.  It sounds obvious to not tell the party person about their surprise, but trust us – It can be the most difficult.

 
Give Clear Instructions in the Invitation – One of the biggest obstacles is trusting the guests to join you with zipping their lips so as not to give away the surprise. Make it understood by the surprise party invitations that the party is a surprise and not to leak a word of it to the party guest of honor.

 

Venue possibilities- The home of another friend – it’s cheerful, and access is stress-free.
Party outdoors – think beach, the woods, a garden. Outdoors is a nice change of scene for the surprisee. Book a private function room – you or the venue can have the food and refreshments catered.

 

 

Smile – Don’t go through trouble of making the perfect surprise party and then forget to arrange to take pictures at the perfect time or to get a video of the moment the surprise is revealed. Get ready to capture the moment of surprise by the surprised look on their face as soon as the happy moment is revealed with the door opening and everyone shouting, “Surprise!”

 
Relax and Enjoy the Party – Even when you follow the best-laid back plan, sometimes the guest of honor knows what is going on before it happens or a glitch gets in the way and your cover is blown. You’ve put your heart and soul into this amazing moment, so relax and enjoy the party!

Easter Party Ideas 

Spring is the prime time to enjoy what Mother Nature gave us, starting with some of the freshest and most flavorful fruits and vegetables available for the season. 

Easter parties are one of the Spring’s first opportunities for an outdoor party. Easter is also a great time to celebrate family traditions or make some of your own, new traditions.

If you’re in charge of hosting an Easter party this year, we have a few party tip suggestions for the perfect party plan for your friends and family! 

Decorate with Bright Colors 

Although Easter colors typically include pastels, such as light pink, baby blue and light yellow, your party decorations do not have to follow this color palette. Using one bright bold Spring color, like hot pink, makes an energized, non-traditional color palette. If you have   kids, they will excitingly want to dye Easter eggs in the days leading up to Easter. Stick with their enthusiasm and have them prepare some dyeable ceramic, or other non-perishable, eggs before the party. You will be able to use these eggs to decorate your house before the party and they can be used for a fun Easter Egg Hunt. 

  
Host It Potluck Style 


You can always count on family to help out with food for events! Instead of trying to prepare the entire meal, accept your family’s offer to add to the abundance of delicious dishes to help out. One way to successfully host a pot luck style meal is to provide the main course and drinks. Guests can then bring salads, side items, and desserts. Some of the stress of preparing a large meal will be off you and guests will get to enjoy family member’s special dishes.

Easter Egg Hunt 


These Easter-themed games turn the holiday into a good old fashioned field day! Everybody loves an Easter egg hunt, but they really only last a couple hours before the kids are in need of another form of entertainment — not to mention some physical activity to burn off all the sugar from the candy available  during the hunt. This Easter Sunday consider starting a new tradition by hosting a backyard Easter party/field day filling eggs with fun prizes, like stickers, movie tickets, or even cash! These fun games will ensure everyone (including the adults) will be having a blast until the sun goes down. 

Kids always love a good old-fashioned sack race. Call it a bunny hop race and give each child an old pillowcase or sack to hop in.

Print out a big picture of Peter Rabbit and hang it on the wall to play the Easter twist of the classic party game. Pin the Tail on The Rabbit

Happy Easter weekend
