BEST DISCO PARTY DECORATIONS

Having the right decorations for your disco party is an essential part of making it a success! The 70's disco scene was all about color! Colorful laser lights, illuminated dance floors and colors reflecting off smoke machines. It was also a time where music was played on records, and mirror balls were essential additions to the disco party night life, so make sure your disco party decorations reflect these must haves! 

WHICH LIGHTS DO I USE FOR A DISCO PARTY?

To enhance the disco experience and to make the colors really pop, we recommend turning your disco party into a glow party with a black light glow party kit. As shown in the BeeGees music video below illuminated dance floors featured in lots of the best nightclubs back in the 70s. Using black lights you can create your own glowing dance floor by marking out squares with neon fluorescent tape. You can also hang neon decorations from the walls and ceiling that will glow in vibrant colors. Make sure to also include colorful laser lights that will reflect off the mirrorball.
