Disco Ball Party Decor

You know how sometimes, people say “Let’s host a summer luau party” and a lot of the time the initial reaction is “EEEHHHH” because it’s been SO commercialized and become less and less authentic, and incredibly predicable and cheesy? I think the poor disco ball has also waltzed into that arena. It’s hard to work with disco balls and make them look high end. The proportions, proper lighting, and necessary ambiance needed to really pull them off is hard to do. Then there are the other questions that come up, such as what type of party is this? Is it a neon party themed? Or just disco balls? Can you even use disco balls without other decor?

This week I’ve put together a disco ball party decor ideas board to help navigate and inspire your inner decorator. I think the key is to work with lots of quantities, you can’t just have one big disco ball over the dance floor, and to work with lots of different sizes. There is a reason people are fascinated with the disco ball; it’s just so shiny! So to keep the focus where it should be, I’ve opted to make the focal “color”, if you will, white. It’s not really a focus, but it’s what everyone else will be seeing in the areas not touched by the disco ball decor. Plus, white is an excellent background to make the disco ball effects pop on!

Here’s what I had in mind for my disco ball party decor:

Gatsby Inspired New Year’s Eve Dinner Party Ideas

I know, I know: Christmas hasn’t even happened yet! Why am I talking about New Year’s Eve already?

And I hear you, fair point. But if you are looking to throw an unforgettable New Year’s Eve party, you’ve got to get planning now! I’m channeling my inner Gatsby for this party. Black and gold, with a hint of art deco flair and a champagne tower: all the makings for a good time.

Ask your friends to dress their best in modern Gatsby inspired ensembles. This is not a costume party; this is a party worth dressing up for! Besides, “dressing up” adds a bit of fun to a party, don’t you think?

Now I put this idea board together channeling a dinner party, but if that’s not your speed, or you have too many friends you’d want to invite, this design concept will translate beautifully to any party style.

Ok, enough chit chat, more pictures. Here’s what I’m thinking:
