If you’re going to have a birthday party, you’re going to need to have people there, right? You have a few easy options when it comes to sending out invites to your neon themed birthday party!

  • You can just go the super easy route and buy them! Amazon has these Neon Paint Splatter Birthday Party Invitations.  The invitation set includes 10 invitations, along with 10 white envelopes.
  • Want to save money? Make your own invites! Whip up something simple in like PicMonkey or PhotoShop, then print them out on neon card-stock paper.


Usually, we’d tell you to save money on decorations by keeping it simple, but at a neon-themed birthday party, decorations really make or break the bash.

Don’t worry, though, that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune to really bring your party to life! Here are a few easy ideas:

  • Throw your party at night and keep the room dark so your neon elements really pop. Grab some cheap black plastic tablecloths to use on all your tables.
  • Use plenty of balloons to bring your theme to life! Amazon has great Blacklight Polka Dot Party Balloons that glow under a black light. You can also buy inexpensive balloons in neon colors at your local party store or even the dollar store.


  • Add a little creative chaos to your decor with neon and black light paint! Just get some black poster board, splash it on a la Jackson Pollock style, and hang your canvases up around the room.
  • Go crazy with glow sticks! You can find packages of them at your dollar store. Set them out in bowls for your guests, use them as decor around your food table, and so on.
