Outdoor Entertaining: Light Up the Night

Lighting to Enhance an Event at Night

It can be difficult to create a comfortable environment for an outdoor event after the sun goes down.  The best way to brighten up your outdoor event space is by using strands of small white, or clear, lights. Make sure they are a soft glow for a subtle, yet effective light. It is best to use these as a parameter outline, or to outline large items like am umbrella or deck. String them wherever you can, on trees, shrubs, fences, or walls. Adding accent candles can pull the look together and offer additional tabletop lighting. To pull everything together, consider using large hurricane candles in large glass containers to illuminate walkways. Another great way to light up paths are the traditional tiki style lights, which are durable and a good option if you are going to have children running around.
