80s neon is back but a little bit cooler than I remember it. Whether its using traditional neon on neon, neon on neutral - for a more upscale chic look - or glow in the dark neon there are so many ways to incorporate this trend for a fresh new bold look at your next soiree. here are a few ways to tastefully highlight your party!

The first thing you have to do is make sure that the colors are in fact neon. Regular bright yellow and neon yellow can be fairly close. An easy way to make sure its neon is to hold up your highlighters up against the shade you're considering.

Spray paint traditional statues, vessels, and vases in neon. For an added designer flair mix in metals like gold (another popular trend on the rise) or silver. I love how this elephant uses neon-on neon in a great dose, with the pink neon as the base and the yellow neon as an accent.

For a more sophisticated look neon on neutral is harmonious without being overpowering. I love the use of diy brown bag flowers, white as a base, + pink neon as the accent.

For a more fun + upbeat use of neon trend - incorporating glow in the dark - black light neon, or neon lights can really make a space fun for children + teenagers.
How clever is it to pop a glowstick in a lantern instead of a candle? Or using those super neon bright poster boards for a bright bunting banner!

Hang a glow stick chandelier in the party space or over the dining table. For an even more sophisticated look make all of the glow sticks one color or dual color (such as pink + yellow alternating).
Best part - you can de-construct the chandelier at the end of the party and give them away as favors.

i really think the re-surgence of the neon shudder shades a couple years back sparked the neon retro 80s party decor trend.
