Al Fresco Entertaining: String Lights

Posted by


I think one of the best ways to create an absolutely unforgettable environment at your next outdoor party is to use string lights.  They create an atmosphere that’s romantic like a Florentine side street. 

I used them last year at my fiesta party and wow, what an effect they created!

They’re pretty straight forward.  Individual bulbs hang from the main electrical line.  You string them back and forth across your outdoor space for instant drama.  I’d recommend sticking to low-wattage bulbs so that your backyard doesn’t look like the high school football stadium on Friday night.  I bought mine from and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase!
