Are you getting tired of the same old party decorations? You know, the red roses and balloons for Valentine's Day, the same old pine cones at Christmas and of course the candles in the pumpkin for Halloween? Did you know that you can use sparklers for parties to light up the festivities? Here are five great ways you can use party sparklers to light up a variety of parties.
Birthday candles are passé; everyone has been there and done that. From standard birthday cake candles to the big number candles, even the tricky ones that won't go out, when you've had enough, try adding a few cake sparklers to the cake instead of those old-fashioned candles (or alongside them). Imagine the guest of honor's face when their cake erupts in a blaze of golden sparks!
When you have the heart-shaped balloons rising from the table, the perfect mix of pink, red, and white in your tablecloth, and the vase full of roses in place, you probably think you have everything set for this special day. But, there is one more very important item to add to your list of decorations. Heart-shaped sparklers for parties make great decorations during the day (keep them away from any flames such as candles). At the end of the meal, you can share one of these party sparklers by each of you lighting one side, and letting them burn together into the center of the heart.
Add Some Sparkle to Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo is a time of color, music, incredible food, and of course, everyone coming together. Place buckets of sparklers next to those with the beer, soda, and other beverages in them. If you have a live band playing, add buckets of sparklers on the stage for effect. If you are hosting a sit-down meal why not add a sparkler with a name tag to show people where to sit?
Halloween...Not with a Flicker
If you are tired of the same old flickering candles in your pumpkins, why not use sparklers instead? Try buying one of those super tall pumpkins, carve it to suit with a face or a detailed scene. Then place one or more party sparklers inside and light them! The golden glow coming through the carving might not last long but will certainly make for an exciting new look and some incredible photos!
Add Some Sparkle to Your Christmas Centerpiece
There are so many places you can use the different types of sparklers for parties to decorate your home for Christmas. Add them to your centerpiece and light them once everyone is seated for the meal. Place jars of them on the mantlepiece, use heart-shaped sparklers on gifts with name tags to show how much you love each other. The kids can always go outside with you in the evening and spend time making glowing shapes in the dark with your Christmas decorations. What a fantastic way to celebrate the holiday and great fun for everyone.
