Glow sticks are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and there are many ways to use them to decorate a party. Long, flexible glow sticks can be wrapped around chairs and railings. Small ice cube shaped glow sticks can be used to light up drinks. Glow sticks can also be placed inside of balloons, lighting the balloons up from the inside. Place glow stick balloons around your special event to create an interesting effect.
Things You'll Need

Stretch the balloon by partially inflating it and then allowing it to deflate. This will make it easier to get the glow stick into the balloon.
