Here are some ways to make your outdoor areas look magical after the sun goes down. An extra bonus is that none of these outdoor lighting ideas requires hard-wiring!

Bring a touch of the tropics to your backyard with battery-powered LED tiki torches. They are great for illuminating a pathway so your guests can find their way to the main event. Tiki torches can also be used to define an outdoor dining or sitting area.

With summer in full swing, it’s likely you have outdoor soirees on your mind, or even the calendar. Of course you want your event to be memorable and that can easily be achieved by the right outdoor lighting.

Globe party lights strung between trees or posts help define and draw attention to furniture groupings while creating a festive ambiance.

Another way to use decorative lanterns is to hang them outside over tables or sitting areas to create mood lighting. Use twine for a rustic look or pretty ribbons if you want your outdoor décor to look more refined.

Keep your party out of the dark with one of these illuminating lighting options.

Not only is it easy to install, but ambient lighting will set the perfect mood for your outdoor parties. The key to getting them to stay up? Screw-in (or use heavy duty adhesive) hooks. Just drape lights between hooks, making sure that the end plug is near an electrical source.

In both cases, I recommend you use LED candles to illuminate the lanterns. They now come with flames that appear to flicker like real candles. Unlike real candles, the LED version won’t blow out and aren’t potential fire hazards.
