An evening barbecue, for example, or an outdoor anniversary reception would both benefit from decorative lighting. Even something as simple as a patio light strings creates a nice atmosphere. Decorate with outdoor lights and enhance your outdoor events.
Outline the area with light strings. For example, if you are hosting a party on the back deck, describe the deck and awning or cover with some white lights. This will define and illuminate the party area. Use boy’s hooks for easy attachment. Put the safety first. When defining the area of strings of light, use individual lights to illuminate roads or steps so your guests can safely walk around the area. You can use in-ground sun light or even light fixtures.
Mark trees and shrubs with twinkling or colored light strings. Play with color. Use gold and silver lights on topiaries for a formal party, or red and green light on an apple tree for a fun effect. Use spotlights to pay attention to unique features, such as a special fountain or a gigantic blow up Santa. Decorate with unique lights, etc. Chinese paper lanterns or plastic snowflake lights, depending on the theme of the party. String them from a porch roof, from tree to tree, or even hanging from a clothesline. Place your lights before connecting them and use extension cords to make sure they reach.
