It is natural for the tone of the evening to change throughout the night. At first, the conversation will most probably be sophisticated small talk. After a few drinks, the music will get louder, those classic tunes will inevitably come on, and the dance moves will come out. Eventually, the evening will change again, to a more intimate ambience; perhaps sharing one too many secrets after one too many! With all these changes, the lighting should ideally change as well. The perfect solution to this is dimmable bulbs. Start off with your bulbs on their max brightness and gradually dim the lights as your cocktail evening unwraps.
