Disco ball, glitter ball, mirror ball, ball mirror â€“ this essential party item is known under many different names. Despite being strongly associated with the disco ear of the late 1970s and early 1980s, the first known disco ball appeared in the 1920s. If you take a closer look at Berlin: Die Sinfonie der GroÃŸstadt, a silent film from 1927, you can for instance see a shiny mirror ball inside a German nightclub. In the 1970s the connection between mirror balls and disco music were firmly established and has been since then. The term disco ball is now much more common than mirror ball, ball mirror and glitter ball.
Today, more and more people chose to install disco balls in their own homes as a fun element of playful interior design. If you donâ€™t know how to make a disco ball, there are many shops that sell them. If you fail to find one in your area, you can always order to disco ball by mail and have it delivered to you in time for your next evening of disco dancing. You can also get your hand on all sorts of disco ball paraphernalia. What about a shiny disco ball necklace? A pair of glistening ear rings? Cufflinks in the shape of miniature glitter balls? Regardless how you use them, disco balls are a sure way of getting attention and bring a smile to anyoneâ€™s face.
