Our 10 Best Selling Reception Decor

Hey, Elly here.

It’s only Spring but I feel like I’ve been to at least 10 wedding ceremonies and receptions. Each one unique with different themes, color palette, and vibes and although they all shared different attributes, they all had one thing in common: LIGHTS!

It’s definitely hard planning an event, especially one as important as a wedding reception. But like I always say, FBL is here to make your night one of your most treasured memories.

So I got inspired, looked through our database, and found FBLs’ top 10 best-selling reception decoration of 2018! If you are struggling with your décor, look no further!

Number 10! Don’t let the picture fool you, this marquee box comes with over 80+ letters and symbols to write personalized messages for the world to see. It’s a classic and, simultaneously, a new-age way to say  ‘Congratulations’, ‘I love you’ or ‘Happy birthday’. The possibilities are endless.

Number 9! These floating LED roses are the most magical flowers you’ve seen. Flowers are a must for weddings and bridal showers so why not get something that will last?

Number 8! If you’re like me and LOVE to arts and craft, then this is the perfect product for you. With an array of different colors to choose from, you can let your creativity run wild. Whatever you decide to make, it’ll be a meaningful and personal touch to your event.

Number 7! One of my favorite things about receptions is the afterparty. What better way to get one started than with our light projector? Turn any empty room into a dance party that everyone can enjoy.

Number 6! Have you ever wanted to change the lights to fit the mood when that one song comes on, or halfway through that emotional speech you are pouring your heart into? Yeah, me too.

It’s possible with our remote LED submersible! Keep your guests entertained and never let your centerpieces be boring again.

Number 5! Recycling has never been better! The cork shaped battery pack fits in most bottles for an easy DIY. Don’t lie, we know you’ll have plenty of empty bottles. *wink wink*

Number 4! If you are feeling chic, modern and want something that screams new-age, then think LED Cubes! With multicolor changing or steady lighting, these are great for any color scheme or theme.

Number 3! Because what’s cooler than a square? A circle! So throw a ball… just not this one. Our mid-size Deco Balls are the perfect size for the center of reception tables, plus dress it up by surrounding with flowers or other festive decors – get creative with it!

Number 2! You can’t judge til you’ve seen them in action! The disco ball sets the perfect groovy vibe that will keep your guests getting funky with it all night long.

Number 1! Our most searched product for reception is.. you guessed it, Light up centerpieces! It’s the perfect finishing touch to your table for your perfect night, it’s no wonder that they’re number 1 on our reception decor.

We know how stressful planning an event could be, but it’s all worth it when you see those happy faces of friends, family, and loved ones. If none of the products above float your boat then feel free to check out our 100+ reception decor products HERE.

Happy planning! ELLY OUT.

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?

Make A DIY Bouquet Full Of LED Lights!

 

Now where my ladies at?!             This DIY bouquet light craft is dedicated to all funky brides who think outside the box.  Whether it’s elegant night time nuptials you’re planning, or a wacky tacky Vegas wedding (yes that’s exactly what’s happening to the right, hellooooo match made in Heaven!), a DIY bouquet full of LED lights is going to wOw your wedding guests like nothing else, and boy was it easy on the pocketbook.

My DIY bouquet is used with our little rainbow LEDs made specifically for arts & crafts.  I’ve seen them put in hair, sewn into clothes, glued into & onto holiday decorations, basically you name it & it can be done with these little babies.  Need I remind you they magically & ever-so-slowly change color?  True story.  Look just how whimsical & dreamy:

 

BRIGHT IDEA before we begin:                                                       Those working with floral arrangements at flower shops have GOT to try this for high school prom season.  Homecoming season too; any high school dance.  DIY light up corsages & LED boutonnieres!  What a show stopper.  Righty-o, and away we go…

 

STEP 1 – Start at a bargain store before paying full price for silk flowers.  Bargain dollar stores have pretty good lookin’ fake flowers!  Just requires patience sorting through them.  White petal flowers will give you the best results every time; really lets those vibrant colors shine through…

STEP 2 – Loosely hold your flower bunches together, arrange the wire stems to your liking so it all “flows”, then hot glue inside & around the stems.  Hot glue your lil’ heart out!  You can bind it all together with duct tape too.  Nevermind the messy, for you’ll just cover it all up with pretty ribbon.

 

STEP 3 – Cover it all up with pretty ribbon!  Put a drop of hot glue where you begin the wrap, let dry then continue all the way down, keeping the wrap tight & smooth.  Add a dab of hot glue at the end to secure.

 

STEP 4 – Unwrap your FBL LEDs & plant 1 inside each flower.  If you want to re-use your LEDs on future crafts, you can attach lights temporarily with bits of chopped up velcro!  Or if your DIY bouquet is a permanent fixture, use 1 tidy drop of hot glue down in the center of each bloom.  Easy!  Just takes patience: 

Thanks for stopping by & hope you’ll join us again, hey, bookmark our blog!  😀  So many crafty ideas brewing up in this light brain of mine & I’m excited to share more with you…
