Blacklight Room Decor
An assortment of easy-to-find items, including fluorescent paint and tape, bright-white fabric, Vaseline glass, and even tonic water, becomes luminously eerie in a spectrum of hues when exposed to the ghostly glow of black light.
With these clever tricks, adding a glimmer to the refreshments table, treat bags, and holiday vignettes is frighteningly simple.
Offer doorbell ringing tricksters and exiting guests some treats from a spine tingling tableau.
A tablecloth trimmed and embellished with a black light reactive marker appears to be a web spun by an enormous arachnid. Optical white painted cake stands and cauldrons dish out black-and-white goodies.
Surreal Estate Conjure an abandoned mansion by shrouding furniture in stark white yardage. Fluorescent tape creates extra molding, and pumpkins and silk leaves become lustrous with fluorescent paint.
Surveying the room are the photos, enhanced with cut out fluorescent eyes and fangs. Bottled blacklight bubbles ensure amusement for impish Caspers.

Dark-hued fruits, creamy white cheeses, and hanging balloons create a spectral study among cake stands, goblets, and glow-in- the-dark candles slipped into holders, no matches required: These tapers radiate from within.
Drinks to Die For
Treat party goers to devilishly poisonous potables decanted into vessels that suggest an experiment gone awry.
The quinine in tonic water takes on a sinister glow in blacklight, even when frozen into cubes. Clip art labels identify this "toxic" drink and other chilling cocktail components.
