Glow in the Dark Pool Party- Party Planning Ideas

This past Saturday my sister turned 13, but Friday was her big party! My mom and I had a blast putting this party together. I got the idea from Pinterest (here) when I saw a picture of glow sticks in a swimming pool. A glow in the dark pool party sounded like a fun and enjoyable party to put together and I can honestly say that even though the party wasn't thrown for me, I had a ball!
Below I will show several different pictures from the party. Unfortunately, it was quite difficult to photograph glow in the dark things but I did my best. I will also be listing links to a lot of the supplies we got, so if you want to re-create this party you can do so easily!

Since my mom and I decided to keep all of the glow décor strictly in the outdoor pool area, we decided that the decorations for the inside would be black and neon colors:

We bought these bags from Party City (here) and they fit perfectly with all the other décor inside. We filled these goody bags with candy, Glow in the Dark Earrings (here), and Glow in the Dark Lip-gloss.
The decorations used on the inside were all party of the "Disco Party Theme" at Party City, so if you actually go to the store you will see all of these items in one place.
The plates can be found (here) and the matching napkins can be found (here).
The center piece can be found (here). We decided to put the confetti around the table and the large centerpiece in the middle. Then, instead of using the other two disco balls on the table, we took ribbon and hung them from the light fixture.
The balloons can be found (here).

These pictures definitely aren't the best but have some mercy because everyone was jumping around, and it is hard enough to take pictures of glowing things at night, however these pictures do show how much fun this type of party is. After my sis opened presents and they ate pizza and cupcakes, they all went outside to dance and swim to blasting music with glow in the dark accessories.
We already owned the volleyball net.
Light up balloons can be found (here). These were probably the coolest things ever. We tied them down and let them float and they light up and change colors for 15 hours. They have to be filled with helium to float but once they were kind of wet, we threw them in the pool and it was honestly such a cool accessory to have for the party.
A pack of glow sticks can be found (here). Everyone had on bracelets and necklaces along with throwing all the extras in the pool to make the water glow. This was really cool and enjoyable.
A glow in the dark Frisbee disk can be found (here). This was also just an awesome thing to throw in the pool and throw back and forth!
The glow in the dark ring toss game we had in our yard can be found (here).
The light up lanterns that we attached to our orange tree behind our pool can be found at CVS stores.
During the party we had a couple of games set up off to the side in our yard.
The limbo stick we used is available at Party City stores along with the glow in the dark hula hoops we bought for the party.
Inside the patio we bought several bowls to have chips and cookies in along with filling our cooler with drinks. This was also where the stereo was and where we had a disco ball found (here).
Also inside there we had a black table cloth and more of the disco plates from the inside decorations.
I may have also had a little surprise to try real hard to embarrass my sista on her first day as a teenager..... TADDAAA! Yeah I kinda bought a glow in the dark wig. Oh and my dad is photo bombing the picture. :)
Anyways... This party was loads of fun to put together and a super great idea for a summer party with some friends.
