The weather outside may be about to turn frightful, but there’s still enough time for at least one more dinner party in your backyard. But before you hit the store and fire up the grill, think about how you can send patio party season out in style with the right lighting.
Setting the mood
With the days getting shorter, proper lighting is even more essential for outside gatherings. Fortunately, there are plenty of options for setting a fun, relaxed atmosphere at your next get-together.
One easy and appealing option is setting the table outside with LED lights made to look like votive candles. This way you can enjoy the mood that comes with a candle-lit dinner while getting the superior light provided by LEDs.
Tailored to your home design
Every home is different, but there are lighting options to suit most any design. For instance, decks, porches and patios can come alive with low-voltage mini lights under steps, railings and benches to help guests see and illuminate your backyard decor at the same time.
Meanwhile, if you have a pergola or some other overhead decor under which you’re dining, installing a low-key spotlight can be a great way to illuminate the evening.
