Light It Up!

I love the look of marquee lights right now. They can add the perfect dose of rustic chic + whimsy to create a statement at a party.

When used on a large scale, they don’t require a lot of other decorations, because they become the focal point.

When used with a carnival, circus, or movie theme, they can reinforce your theme with your other decorations.

If you invest in the vintage metal version, they could easily be recycled to become party of your home decor, especially if you use your initials.

We are currently working on a party that I would love to see the Birthday Boy’s age up in lights. The budget won’t allow for actual metal marquee lights, but I think I have found a great solution. Fiskars has a great tutorial on creating the same effect with paper mache letters!

I also found a similar take on it the involves painting the outside gold and the inside bright colors. It really makes the letters pop.
