Used in venues and homes all up and down the country, the ever-popular revolving mirror ball has enhanced light effects for decades. Rotating lights are an excellent focal point to any celebration, once light hits a glitter ball it is reflected and turned into multiple beams of light. You’ll notice with mirror balls they’re hanging in the centre of a room more often than not, this allows refractions in every direction.

Buy Affordable Glitter Balls

The balls are easily fastened to a small motor hung on the ceiling which spins to revolve the ball itself. External lighting is then directed toward the ball, hundreds of small and reflective squares will then cast this all over the room as the ball revolves. This rotational method has been consistently in use for decades and the technique was first implemented over 50 years ago.

Fast forward to today, we are witnessing the balls being used as part of modern home design and even as wedding decorations. Decorative glitter balls give off the impression that the residents or happy couple are free-spirited and don’t take life too seriously. At weddings, couples tend to hold onto them in pictures, some hang them above the altar or even above tables in the reception dining area.

Hanging up disco mirror balls of varying sizes together provides a far more attractive visual effect, you can place a group of smaller units as decor for the aisle. Also, this method looks fantastic when displayed within a marquee or tent-based wedding or venue, natural light will also come into play, brightening the area. With the right lighting effects, your wedding pictures are sure to look stunning, do some further research on ball based ideas.

Where to place a retro mirror ball?

Where you situate the ball is fairly crucial, some set them up to dress corners but they are usually a centrally placed item. Once hooked to the ceiling, the best course of action is to set up your lighting and let the motor rotate the ball. Then if you still want to push the boat out a little further you can activate a smoke machine to deliver an even better effect.

Beams of light pierce through the smoke, but the smoke will actually highlight the entire length of the light itself. Therefore, as the ball itself revolves the light will follow suit providing an amazing multi-light effect that will cover the majority of your venue. The more lights you can direct at the ball, the more the effect will multiply, you can do the work of many light systems by using this method logically.

Coupling our light systems with fog or haze effects is highly advised across much of our lighting and effects sector. Smoke-based after-effects like this will increase the visibility of all light effects created, a technique utilised by venue owners, promoters and working DJs for many years. It is definitely a great idea to go the extra mile and consider a spotlight and smoke machine to go with the order of your ball.

Who can use a disco mirror ball?

Of course, anybody can use this item but usually, this item is reserved for use by operators or owners of live music venues. There are a few different sizes available as mentioned so while you can use these in the home, the sixteen-inch may not be suitable for smaller spaces. Pro DJs tend to have their own ball system ready to go in case the venue they are performing at is lacking their own.

With the advent of apps like Vine and more recently TikTok, we’ve seen many young people embrace the effects of a disco ball system. This provides the background of their videos with an interesting visual effect, especially those that upload videos of them dancing etc. Some of the balls on this page come as kits with a motor and a spotlight for excellent effects right from the box.

If you do decide to make an order, you can set these kits up yourself at home for testing purposes before you take them out to a party. Firstly, use a hook or similar to hang the motor up to the ceiling above, usually above a dance floor of some kind. Secondly, hang the ball to the motor and activate the light fixture, you can then activate smoke machines too if you own one or have one in your basket.

Origins of the glitter ball

Officially invented in the early 1900s, the little-known Myriad Reflector also created multiple beams of light through reflective material. However, they didn’t really become globally popular for many decades, hitting their heyday in the 1970s where they became synonymous with the Motown and disco era. The general popularity of this item has risen and faded multiple times, seeing a comeback in the naughties and has since returned two decades after.

Though they are retro, they are affordable and therefore popular all year round especially as the UK prepares for Christmas work parties and other late-year celebrations. Each year around this time we experience a large uptick in ball purchases, this is amongst smoke machines and LED PAR cans as mentioned above. This alone shows that the public still associates this product with celebration and parties and rightly so, we couldn’t agree more.

This item now has worldwide recognition as being the centrepiece of thousands of parties over the course of each year. The myriad reflector remains a big deal a whole century after its initial design and is a surefire way to get your party guests in the celebratory mindset. Easy to set up, easy to use and most importantly easy to convey the party atmosphere to anyone and everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are mirror balls used for?

Mirror balls are used primarily for decoration and lighting effects in entertainment venues such as nightclubs and dance halls, or even in a home environment.

The mirrored surface of a mirror ball reflects light and creates a sparkling/glittering effect, which can really enhance a party atmosphere.

Are disco balls and mirror balls the same thing?

Yes - there is no difference between disco balls and mirror balls; they are more or less the same thing. The term ‘disco ball’ comes from the 1970s, since they were used during the disco era. On the other hand, the term ‘mirror ball’ was coined simply to describe a disco ball’s function - it reflects light from a spotlight around a room/space using multiple small mirror segments.

When did mirror balls become popular?

Mirror balls first became really popular in the 1970s, which was around the same time of the meteoric rise of disco/dance music. They are still used even in the modern day, and many people who grew up and partied in the 70s get a nostalgic blast whenever they see a mirror ball in use.

What lights should I use with mirror balls?

Normally, spotlights are used with mirror balls. Spotlights can be mounted/hung from the ceiling or lighting stands and shone on mirror balls at an angle to reflect small beams of light all across a space.

In addition to this, a spotlight’s colour can be changed to subsequently have a different colour beam shot around by the mirror ball.

How do you hang a mirror ball?

Mirror balls need ceiling fixtures (such as hooks or screws), although if your mirror ball comes with a mounting rod, then it is best to follow the instructions that come with the manual.

If you have bought a motor, then it should come with mounting brackets, meaning it can be secured to the ceiling.

How do mirror balls work?

Mirror balls function by having a spotlight shone on them at an angle, which as a result shines multiple smaller beams of light around the room/area. Mirror balls rotate round using a separate motor unit to achieve a shimmering reflective light effect.

They go really well with smoke machines and other types of lights and add lots to your party ambience.

Who invented the mirror ball?

The invention of the mirror ball was credited to Charles Harrison, who came up with the idea of a mirror ball in 1917. This effect was initially used in theatres and cinemas, although wasn’t as popular until the 1970s, where it would be used in nightclubs all across the world and would become the symbol of the disco and dance music culture.

What are mirror balls made of?

Mirror balls are typically made out of small pieces of mirrored glass or plastic, with the core usually being made from foam or plastic, which makes it easy for the user to hang the ball from the ceiling.

Some mirror balls are made of other materials, such as acrylic or polycarbonate, which are lighter and more durable than glass.

Do mirror balls spin on their own?

For a mirror ball to work properly, it must be connected to a motor on a stand or the ceiling. A motor should be chosen for your mirror ball based on its size; the bigger the mirror ball, the bigger the motor should be.

Where is the best place to put my mirror ball?

Typically, mirror balls are suspended from the ceiling in the centre of a room to distribute light evenly throughout the space.

Nonetheless, there are still other methods for placing mirror balls. In smaller rooms/spaces (like a home setting), mirror balls can be better off in the corner of a room. This allows light beams to bounce off walls, which in turn generates a dazzling/shimmering effect.

Additionally, mirror balls can be placed on a stand or table with a floor-mounted motor, which works particularly well for outdoor events or larger areas where it is required for the ball to be seen from multiple different angles.
