LED “Up-Lighting” Makes Jack-O-Lanterns Glow Safely

It’s been called a Centerpiece Light.  Some call it a Vase Base.  I call it easy breezy portable LED Up-Lighting.  You’ve seen such vibey lights at wedding receptions, high school reunions and swanky night events.  But have you ever thought to use Up-Lighting with your Halloween Jack-O-Lanterns?  Oh yes, this is so great for parents with curious tiny humans running around.  No fire?  No problem:

Spooky cute!  Replacing candles with LED Up-Lighting is way too easy.  We just made sure to carve the pumpkin hole beneath its glowing grin.  That’s it!  Leave the top on your pumpkin this year- don’t carve up there, don’t even touch it, and let your LED Base work its magic from below.  Last Halloween, I paired this product with spooky bottles:

 How ya like them poison apples?  I KNOW.  Too fab for words.  I’ve got some Tim-Burton-loving, DIY-haunted-house-constructing pals who are going to make use of this lighting effect year round — you’re welcome, friends.  And in case you weren’t sold already…

MORE reasons why FBL Up Lighting rules:

No heat!  Fire is so last season, you guys, ditch those flames and never look back.

  • Pressure activated.  Unpackage, flip the switch, set your weighted decorative piece on top of your Light Base and *voila!*
  • Up-Lighting works wonders beneath bar bottles on display, ice sculptures, glass trophies, translucent works of art and so much more!  Creative types, I know you’re already brainstorming great ideas – do share in the comments below…
  • These LEDs are bright and long lasting thanks to 3 replaceable AAA Batteries.  Lights inside will shine like stars beyond the course of your event.
  • And check this out:  we’re open to your opinion about which solid colors to carry next.  What do you think, good-people-who-buy?  We’re pleased to offer Blue, WhiteMulticolor as you seen in the video, and now unique Purple for Glow Parties.

For dapper cadavers on a smaller scale, be sure to check out our LED Submersibles for an equally mesmerizing effect.  Tiny lights.  Big shine:

DIY Lighting with FBL String Lights

Welcome back, light lovers.  Gotta show you these classic ideas for mood lighting on a budget.  “Do It Yourself” is the way to go, and DIY Lighting can be quite simple with a couple key ingredients:  #1) flowing drapes, be it ready-made curtain panels or cheap tulle cut at the fabric store, and #2) sparkling bright LED Indoor String Lights by FBL.  Check out these relaxing ideas for DIY lighting in the home.  Cool, calm & collected:

white_led_string_lights_with_plug

blue_led_string_lights_with_plug

Aaaahhhh, I can feel my stress levels drop and blood pressure simmer down just looking at these peaceful images.  It’s my Happy Place.  To recreate the look of this magical DIY Lighting, hang fabric to your liking, and as you hang the string lights on top, follow the flow of the fabric.  Drape together & prepare to chill.  Budget DIY lighting like so isn’t just great for relaxing moments at home, but also high school proms, photo booths at wedding receptions, and the office believe it or not – FBL knows quite a bit about that and cannot recommend it enough.

HELPFUL HINTS about FBL’s Indoor LED String Lights!  What makes them special:

arrowneonLEDs don’t heat up, therefore totally safe adding them to fabric. Remember old Christmas lights and how hot they’d get while running up your electric bill?  Yeaaaaah, don’t use those.  Like ever again.  I mean it.  Listen to your Auntie Nikki…

arrowneonThese little orb light strands come with a button near the plug for mixing up the light function if you wish.  So pick calm steady lighting shown above, or move on to smooth chasing lights, or flashing blinky function great for dance parties, whatever you want! Yay options.

arrowneonIf you fancy something a little more funky, check out FBL’s Light Curtain Backdrop pictured below.  Their strand is shorter, a good size for running along refreshment tables at a party, drape along a window top like garland, or attach to the headboard of your bed.  Its continuous color change function is out of this worrrrld!

‘Til next time.  Chill on, light lovers ~

LED Ice Cubes: Know Your Options!

Welcome, cocktail enthusiasts!  We’ve been expecting you.  Kick your feet up, put on a record or 8 track, MP3, whatever you crazy kids are listening to these days, and prepare to blast off into the happiest of happy hours.  Once you add LED ice cubes to your mix, there is no goin’ back…

: : cue swingin’ tunes : :

Allow me to introduce you to

The latest & greatest in LED ice cubes.  Reasons why they rule:

1.)  The price tag. “Price breaks” for our wholesale customers, that’s how we roll.

2.)  The realistic rectangular frosty shell.  They just don’t make ’em like this, you guys!  They being our competitors.  FBL makes thee only realistic looking shell on the LED ice cube market.  So special, we had to patent it.

3.)  Light drinks on the GO.  Small & discreet, I can put a 12-piece box of Inspiration Ice in my bag before a night out and surprise my pals as the sun goes down.  Always exciting! Pretty perty in our cups even when there’s still a bit of sunlight.

In total darkness, they are extra magical.  Add ’em to an ice bucket mixed with real ice cubes – this makes party people VERY happy.

See?

Sharing is caring.

Now before Inspiration Ice, there was HOLLYWOOD ICE.

3_led_ice_cubes

Our 1st FBL brand of LED ice cubes.  Reasons why they still rule:

1.) Same great price.  Just depends on the LOOK you prefer: realistic rectangles vs. sleek squares.

2.) The white cube inside.  Hollywood Ice cubes appear to glow neon thanks to the inner shell which diffuses the light.

3.) Once again, simple to take with.  Light glasses are way fun too, but when you’re on the go & taking the party with you, LED cubes are totally the way to go. Check out this delectable spread.  YOU BET I bring ’em to restaurants.

MAGICAL FACTS about both styles:

>>>  Always tested & boy we are strict.  FDA approved plastic, waterproof buttons, and permanently sealed for safety.  We design all the Light Ups we can to have changeable batteries for multiple nights of fun, but this is one light product you want sealed for good.

>>> Color choices!  Multicolor allows you to leave it on the steady color of your choice, or a groovy color splash setting which cycles through every shade of the rainbow. BUT did you know you can buy our LED ice cubes in single colors to match your wedding, event or team colors?  ‘Tis true, and our 1-color cubes give you the option to flash, blink, or stay on steady.

>>> Add them to edible creations!  Safe/tested plastic shell means cool to put on cupcakes, illuminate an entire birthday cake or wedding cake, the possibilities are endless if you’re a creative baker!  So cute, right?

Party Decor Takes Flight With A Butterfly Light!

How do you do, dear crafters?  Back with more light decoration ideas.  This time we’re exploring the dainty & decorative butterfly light with color change wings.  Each discounted wholesale pack of 12 has an assortment of wing designs; 6 different wings to be exact.  Just what can one do with an LED butterfly light?  Thanks to the battery pack shaped like a tea light candle,          so much!

The most simple & classic way to display your butterfly light is to place some in a tea light candle holder – perfect fit & very zen:

Add a butterfly light to a garden party centerpiece & surround with greenery, shiny beads or river stones for a magical night time touch:

If you’re planning a princess theme or butterfly theme party, place them all about as party favors for others to help themselves to, or drop one in each goody bag with other princess accessories, for little girls REALLY love light butterflies (plus there is a screw on the battery house for safety – its replaceable batteries stay inside when little hands get curious):

For my own personal party wear, I hot glued a butterfly light to our whimsical fairy princess feather halo for a unique hippy headband no one else will have: I gently curled the ribbons with scissors + hot glued to the back 4 cut-up pieces of Mardi Gras beads.  I also hot glued some fake flowers around the butterfly to hide the battery house.  Then end result?  Fabulous!  Easy!  Inexpensive!  Place one on the head of your little birthday girl & she’ll feel like queen for a day.

For more fun craft ideas & suggestions on how to use your Light Ups, check back often!  ‘Til next time, my light craft amigos…
