If you are planning a party, barbecue, or even any outside event and you need something different to decorate the area, consider outdoor string lights. String lights are not only used for Christmas anymore. Today you can see all kinds of shops, restaurants, and home owners decorating the landscape with them all year long.
They really add a nice touch to any party, and some people choose to have them decorate their front of backyard year round. I bought my first set when I was getting ready for my wife's birthday party. I really wanted to impress her with my decorating skills, so I went all out. I bought all kinds of matching napkins, tablecloths, and utensils. To top it off I borrowed the idea of outdoor string lights from a recent cocktail hour I had attended through my job. I strung the lights up all around the hedges of my backyard, around the railings of my deck, and even around the patio umbrellas. The party was a great success and my wife had never been more proud of my efforts.
I went with the single colored white version, but you can really find any color you can think of. Especially at online outlets. The multi-colored version are still popular, but I'd save them for Christmas time. You can get creative and find your own interesting ways to hang them and create your own designs. After my wife's birthday party I decided to keep the lights up all year and every time I gave guests over the compliments overflow.
