Party Lighting For a Fun Atmosphere

One of the most
essential ways for you to be sure that your guests have a great time and enjoy
your party is to help them feel attractive. When your visitors feel attractive
then they will relax, be less self-conscious and be able to cut loose and have
fun. One of the best ways to help you feel attractive is to treat everyone like
a movie star. Nothing can ruin a fun party mood more than too-bright or
too-harsh lighting. Hiring event companies
can help a person get the right lighting and accommodations.

Some tips that
will help you create the perfect party lighting for your event are highlighted

Use Candles
Candlelight is
one of the most flattering and glamorous options for lighting. Regardless of
what you are using – tapers or votive candles – you should place them
everywhere and in groups or bunches. Choosing white candles will provide the
most elegant atmosphere. You should be sure that you choose unscented ones,
however, to ensure they don’t compete with the food you are planning to serve.

Turn Off the Overhead Lighting
The majority of
rooms will have one light in the centre of the ceiling. This should not be
turned on. Overhead lighting will cast extremely unflattering shadows in the
space. A fun fact you may not have known is that overhead lighting is used as a
way to age actresses and actors. This is definitely not what you want to do at
your party.

Utilize Lamps and Dimmers
A diffused light
that comes from a lamp at eye level will create a soft glow and is extremely
flattering. You can also install dimmer switches on the lamps so that you are
able to control the total illumination level.

Use Bulbs that are Low Wattage
For lamps that
you do not have dimmers attached, you should use a low-wattage bulb, such as a
25 watt option. There are some people who will recommend a pink bulb, but you
should not do this since the odd colour shadows may compete with your wall’s

party properly can have a huge impact on whether or not your guests have a good
