Maybe you can paint the balls with fun designs using glow-in-the-dark paint.

Alternatively, what if you let the globes float and seperately floated candles or LEDs. Then, providing the reception begins before sunset, the globes would be visable and as the sunsets, you can start the light source and the globes will still benefit from the reflected light but appear more as round objects.

Shove small glow sticks into them?

@LaughLines:  I wasn’t thinking about fitting them through the valves, that may be a problem but maybe your idea would work, not sure. I purchased these white submersible ones:


Maybe the fairy beads would work better:


I like Vanilla’s idea. Either way, I’d search the saveon website for more options that might work for you.

These are tiny lights- about the size of a large “horse pill” type vitamin. The are used inside balloons. You insert them before you blow up the balloon. You can turn them on after the balloon is inflated. Just hold the balloon or beach ball up, find where the balloominator drops to one side and twist it on. Twist one way for a steady light. Twist the other way for a blinking light.

There are a number of sources onlline. I have used them for charity events lighting balloon bouquets. Battery life is about 12 hours.
