Paint the Town Neon: Favorite Bright, Fun Birthday Party Ideas

No matter your age, adding neon and geometric shapes to your party decor is a guaranteed way to make it stand out from the crowd. If you are throwing a birthday shindig this summer and plan to decorate with all things neon, here are some of my favorite finds to make sure you have the most stylish party in town!

Let's bring back the '80s together shall we? As far as party trends go, it doesn't get much more fun than a bright, neon theme. If you are looking to take this theme to a much more modern place (although who doesn't love a good glow stick necklace?!) check out these fun party ideas.


Geometric Decorations

Proudly display all of the delicious treats for your party with these neon geometric printables from Paper and Cake. These eye catching boxes, labels and table tents will help tie together 


Neon Washi Tape

Washi tape is a quick, easy way to add pops of color to every aspect of your party. Pick up a few of these neon rolls from Omiyage and start decorating those cups, straws, party hats - you name it!


Neon & Glitter Place Settings

Neon and glitter go together like peas and carrots or milk and cookies - or any other perfect coupling you can think of. These table numbers and place setting by Miss Pickle Press are the envy of all glittery, bright tablescapes everywhere. 


Diamond Cupcake Toppers

If you plan on serving cupcakes as the dessert of choice at your birthday celebration, then you are definitely going to need these neon pink & green diamond cupcake toppers from Thick and Thin Designs. Just when I thought cupcake topper designs couldn't get any better.


Colorful Confetti Bombs

I am of the belief that it is not a party without some confetti. Especially if the theme of your party is all about color! For a fun, unique way to incorporate this party necessity, I love these confetti bombs by Knot & Bow. Pass this out to your guests and let the good times roll.


Thank You Tags

After all of the cake has been eaten and all of the confetti has been thrown, it's time to send guests home with a fun goodie bag. Don't forget to attach a note of thanks with these neon tags from Kate Mae Designs. They are the perfect added pop of color for this neon birthday theme!
