One of the things I love in the south is the beautiful summer nights we have. We decided this year to have our summer party as a glow party to capture the best part of the day, the evening. We wired mason jars to the trees, we had tiki torches, and simple paper lunch bags with candles and mother nature provided us with tons of fireflies. We, of course, picked up tons of glow stick products and some glow balloons, that the kids loved. To hang our mason jars, we used florist wire and wrapped around the rim of the jar, and used the wire to go around the branches. We used battery operated tea light candles.
You can pick up a bag of paper lunch bags at Dollar Tree and fill with kitty litter or sand and place your candle inside. So simple, and so pretty.
We also created a nice centerpiece with an old brass chandelier. We took the bulbs out and replaced with solar lights.
These are the kind that you can buy for your lawn or garden. Just take the stake out. We used aluminum foil to keep the solar light in place. You can find old chandeliers at yard sales, thrift stores, and antique stores.
You can pick up glow sticks at Dollar Tree. They have a large variety.
You cannot have a night party without making Smore’s.
The glow balloons I found at Hobby Lobby, and the kids loved them.
