Blog: Inspiration – Mirror Balls

Although mirror “disco” balls seem synonymous with the 70s, they actually first became popular in the 20s. That’s almost a century of dance floors and parties that have been splashed with light and color from mirror balls! At Ultrapom we really love using things in new AND in vintage ways so obviously we adore a mirror ball over a dance floor, but here are some great uses for mirror balls that don’t immediately make you think of Studio 54.

The Unexpected Glam

“Every Barn Needs a Disco Ball”. Just because you’re planning a rustic or outdoor wedding doesn’t mean you can’t have one or two inspiring elements of glitz and glam. I can already hear your guests gasp “There’s a disco ball in the barn! AMAZING!” Trust me.
