Picture this: You’re preparing for a party, but even though your home is sparkling clean, your drinks and food are out, and your playlist is perfect, something still seems missing. Putting out another bowl of chips or mopping the living room floor again won’t do the trick – what you need is better party lighting. Your everyday lighting usually can’t set the right mood for a party, but colored lights and cool patterns set the mood in an instant. Try these 11 indoor party lighting ideas at your next get-together!
11 indoor party lighting ideas
Whether you’re having a party for two or hosting a big group, you can set the perfect mood no matter the occasion with these indoor party lights.
1. Portable lights
The party doesn’t start until you walk in... to the room with another light to add to your setup! With portable lights, you can bring the party atmosphere with you no matter where you’re celebrating. No wire, no plugs, no tripping hazards -- just connect a portable light to any USB port, whether that’s on your computer, on a charging base, or a power pack.
StarPort USB Light
One tiny light. Thousands of stars!
2. Galaxy lights
There’s nothing like passing time with your friends and loved ones under a beautiful night sky. But what if you’d rather stay in? Bring the outdoor party vibes indoors with galaxy lights, which project starry skies and gorgeous galaxies onto your walls and ceilings. Our Sky Lite Evolve Galaxy Projector is exactly what you need for your indoor “outdoor” party, and if you’ve spent any time on TikTok, you’ve probably noticed it blowing up there. Plus, thanks to its compact and lightweight construction, it’s easy to take anywhere and turn any room into the party place!

3. Laser projectors
If you’re having friends over for a night of dancing and music, laser lights are the perfect indoor party light to soak your home in rave-like blues, greens, and reds. These lights are just as good for more relaxing parties, where they can set a tranquil mood for a low-stakes catch-up with friends.
4. Laser bulbs
Entrance yourself and your guests with laser bulbs that offer a bright yet calming hue for your space, with beautiful patterns to boot. These bulbs screw into any standard lighting fixture and cover your room in color and starry skies from head to toe. Our BlissBulb is a great example – swap it with your usual light bulbs to create a calming night sky feel that’s ideal for movie night, game night, or just a casual hang sesh!

Transforming your world is as easy as changing a lightbulb.
5. Star lights
You can get stars that shine brightly through lighting fixtures beyond bulbs. The StarPort we mentioned earlier brings the constellations to you, and so too does the BlissBulb. Both these star lights come in red, green, or blue, and both are super easy to use – here at BlissLights, we believe that a good time with friends should be simple, stress-free, and just plain old stunning.
6. Natural lighting
Parties aren’t always evening affairs. What if you’re hosting a brunch party on a gorgeous afternoon? In that case, your nighttime party lighting ideas might miss the mark. Enter natural lighting – yes, the sunlight flooding through your windows.
While this light itself might not fully brighten your space, transparent lighting objects such as chandeliers, vases, and other light-diffracting objects (often made of glass) can get you there. Dim your usual ambient lights (your ceiling lights) and let your transparent objects do the work. They’ll scatter natural lighting throughout your room and illuminate your brunch party in a clever way your guests are certain to appreciate!
7. Fan lights
When a bunch of people crowd into a home, it can get a little warm. Cool things down with fan lights, which are (as their name suggests) both fans and lights. They’re especially great if you’re hosting a video game party since they keep your consoles cool – and your party looking cool.
8. Strip lights
If you want just peripheral lighting – under cabinets, along countertop edges, surrounding picture frames – for your party, give strip lights a try. Strip lights are precisely what they sound like: a spool of LED lights, which can often be cut to size, that come in a skinny strip perfect for framing windows, lining door frames, and much more. These lights won’t quite fill your room like a galaxy light or a laser light bulb, but they might provide just the accent lighting your party needs. Think of them more as light decorations than primary light sources – laser lights bring the party, and strip lights give your event a gentle finishing touch.
9. String lights
You might first think of Christmas or dorm rooms when you think of string lights, but don’t stop there – string lighting is great for parties year-round in any space! String lights (also known as fairy lights) are great for transforming your door frames and windows into attractive, festive room features. You can find them in classic off-yellow lighting hues, multi-color varieties, or, of course, Christmas reds and greens. Speaking of which...
10. Christmas lights
Having a holiday party? Start off with a Christmas tree and string lights, but don’t stop there. Go the full mile with Christmas light projectors. Couple our all-occasion Red & Green BlissBulb Bundle with our Pixxi Animation Projector. With the latter, state of the art laser animations become the life of the party. With these lights, all you’ll want for Christmas is hues!
Light up any space with vibrant red and green stars.
11. Color-changing LED lights
As you read this list, you’re probably realizing that parties might have more color possibilities than you’d previously realized. LED lights can sometimes address this concern. Some LED lights can emit thousands of colors (though only one at once), and some are even app controlled for easy switching between colors, so they may be just the right fit your lighting party needs.
