Hoppy Days Are Here Again With LED Easter DECOrations!

Weather’s warmin’ up, the sun’s setting later, and FBL Easter Decorations are a delight on spring nights.  Of course we’ve got those cute lil’ low cost novelties you fill Easter baskets with, but did you know we’ve got large-and-in-charge Light Decor that looks cool all season long?  Prepare for more outdoor hangouts when you party with glowing Easter decorations and “Deco” lights!

easterdecorationsdecoballs

Yes sirree, time to break out the FBL “Deco” products.  They are Easter Decoration perfection, with their smooth white shells and ambient color change lights.  The 3″ perfect circles seen above float in water and look nice planted in grass.  Line a walkway with those babies before a party and watch your guests freak out!  In a great way.  We’ve also got oval shaped “decos” to hide in the garden for an Easter egg hunt at dusk.  Words cannot describe just how much kids looooove an event planned with LED Deco Eggs.  Check out how they accentuate an Easter Basket:

easterdecorationslightupeggsMAGIC.  They sell out every year, so act fast, Easter enthusiasts…

Here’s the queen of all Decos:  our jumbo Glowing Orb of Enchantment, measures 10″ in diameter.  This beauty’s absolutely worth its price because it recharges nightly, so no money spent on batteries, it changes color by remote control, and it floats in pools & ponds once removed from charging dock – just dry it off between uses.

I bought my own rechargeable jumbo Deco Ball when it was new here at FBL, so we’re talkin’ many years ago, and I’m still using it I am proud to say.  We made a great product!  My magical orb lamp brings me a lot of joy at home, and new house guests always “ooo” and “ahh” at it.  Even my grumpy cat enjoys it!  What a sassy sphinx.

Why yes ^that^ is a true white setting, in addition to the multitudes of rainbow colors I can choose from.  I hear party planners and production coordinators really need that bright white, so we’re pleased to offer it in our recharging Deco Ball.  The customer speaks, and we listen!

^^^ Also great for Halloween…

Speaking of that essential customer feedback, got any for me?  The comment field below is the perfect way to quickly let us know what you need.  If you’ve got a cool new light craft idea, or are searching for an LED product but just keep striking out, I can help!  Let’s stay in touch, honey bunnies.  Cheers, mates, enjoy your Easter!

Get Your Zen On With Glow Yoga

glow_yoga11

Photo Cred: Beyoutiful Hot Yoga shows us how it’s done.

 Glow Yoga.  Glowga.  Glow with the flooow, zen masters.  This chill exercise trend is here to stay, and I’m jazzed such a party product can help motivate.  It’s a fun incentive when getting fit & centered, ya know?  Mood lighting is welcome in my world ANY time, and society says exercise classes are no exception.  The following Glow Yoga photos caught my eye and inspired me to attend my first class comin’ up here real soon (I’m looking at you, One Down Dog!)…

glowyogaThat rad Glow Yoga shot above is by Matt LaVigne.  I wanna learn how to do that!  Plus adding the laser Party Light was a nice touch – so doing that with ours.  Let’s take a moment to review why Glow Yoga’s such a hit these days:

  1. Glow products are dang affordable, so it won’t break the bank for instructors.
  2. Packed classes, instructors – nuff said!
  3. Once again – incentive.  If ya need a push to get to class in the first place (hi, that’s me), glow kinda tricks the brain into thinking you’re partying…when actually you’re treating your mind, body and soul really well, like 100%.  Sign me up.
  4. In addition to glow yoga, glow aerobics classes are popping up everywhere.  Step it up a notch and check out these lights in motion!  Courtesy of Fitness-Freak.com:

glowyoga3glowyoga2glowyogaCan you dig it?  I sure can.  Subscribe to our blog now and get an update later when we’re back with Part 2:  a full report and pics from our glowing class at One Down Dog.  Seriously, mates, if I can do this, anyone can.  Beginner’s yoga here I come, and I have no doubt it will be fun…

‘Til next time, light loves.

Peace, Love and Bead Crafts!

beads3Bead Crafts knock my socks off. The low cost of wholesale Mardi Gras Beads keeps it cheap, while keepin’ it real with a whole lotta shine & bling.  Bead crafts can transform into seriously effective DIY party decor.  Remember beaded curtains?  Former flower children & alternative types know what I’m talkin’ about:  that sweet jingle jangle of plastic strands as you walk through a doorway.  There are a ton of New Orleans inspired bead creations on Pinterest, but this one reigns supreme, plus can be made to fit windows, neat-o.  I crafted my own magical doorway beaded curtain for Halloween using FBL glow beads – do you like?

mardigrasbeadcurtain

bead_crafts<<<  That’s right, amigos, I put that together from scratch with 3 things:  my trusty glue gun, a plank of wood, and a pile of beads.  That’s all you need for curtain bead crafts!  Oh, and patience, have plenty of that on hand, for it’s just repetitive motions once you have the materials gathered.  If you’re ready to dive into the world of bead crafts, get some strands from FBL to go all matchy-matchy like I did (took me 66 total bead necklaces), or go the more eclectic route and add old random beads from past Mardi Gras parades.

Let’s cut to the chase – here’s what ya do:

  • Cut each necklace so they’re now long un-connected strands,
  • Hot glue 2 pieces together to make an extra long strand,
  • Get a plank of wood to hot glue these stands to,
  • Repeat until your bead curtain is full enough to your liking, aaaand there ya have it.

Another one of my favorite bead crafts is archived in our blog from last Mardi Gras when I added our sparkly strands to the brim of a top hat.  Mardi Gras is year ’round for so many party people, so it’s never too early to re-visit this gem.  Special guest appearance by our cool copper wire LED string lights!  Battery powered for crafts, y’all.

Glow Party Planning On A Budget

So you’re planning a party.  Pop quiz, hot shot: WHAT DO YOU DO for quality party favors on a budget? Gotta be easy too – am I right, party planners?  So what do you do?  Plan a Glow Party, ahh yes, good answer.  The cool neon ambience of a glow party pleases all ages: rambunctious kids, picky teens, rockin’ 20-somethings, seasoned professional adults, yes glow is the missing link at a lot of parties. Luckily our clientele is smart & already in on our little secret…

♫ ♪ Every! Body! Dance! Now! ♫ ♪

Love this glow party favor table at the roller rink.  LED treats mixed in there too – NICE.

* Please note the awesome use of glow sticks to the left below here.  DIY glow garland?  Great idea; gonna string some up next party I have…

And to elaborate on the glow garland idea, check out this epic glow party chandelier, wow.catch_my_party

That would look so fabulous hanging above a spread of our UV Reactive Glow Cups.  I love these particular party cups because (1) they’re made of optimum quality, (2) their neon colors *pop*, (3) put a black light bulb near these babies to really make ’em glow, and (4) no batteries required, so they cost less than LED Cups.  So much WIN!uv_fblv1And now back to serious business…

Glow at a grown up party, weeee!  See?  It happens, any age.  Magical photo credit goes to Pearl Events Austin.

Make a DIY “neon” sign by taping glow bracelets to a wall.  This one’s my favorite for all occasions.  Spell out ANYthing: “Happy Birthday” or “I love you” or “Clean your room!”

Glow bracelets swirled in clear soap dispensers is a pleasant surprise for party guests in the bathroom.

Vegas glow ‘staches.  Creative.  Classy.  Dapper.

Glow party favors + festival season = match made in heaven.

Glow bracelets linked through mesh shirts, way to think outside the box!

Spooky glow eyes to plant in the bushes on Halloween, or any night if you’re a practical joker like myself:

(Here’s a great template for different shaped eyes – cut ’em out of old toilet paper rolls.)

Toss some glow in the ice chest.  Why not?!  Fun at tailgate parties.

Get a bowling party started out on the lawn with glow sticks in water-filled soda bottles.  Might I suggest a pumpkin or cantaloupe to use as the bowling ball…

Nuff said right here.

Sticks in the pool – of course!  Noted for next summer…

Til next time, light loves!

Glow PARTY ON.
