Though string lights have long been a favorite of Christmas decorating, there is no need to put your Christmas outdoor lights
into storage once this holiday has passed. More and more people are incorporating these festive outside lights into their home’s decor year round to give it a warm and welcoming glow. Consult the following guide for ideas on how these lights may be used in all seasons.
Dress Your Holiday BBQ With Lights
If you host an outdoor barbecue for the Fourth of July, consider using patio string lights in your landscaping or along the edges of your deck for some additional illumination. For a chic, elegant feel, stick to white lights, which will give your gathering a subdued feel. For a look with a bit more brilliance, find lights in red white and blue to help you celebrate in style.
Light The Way For Trick Or Treaters
Halloween decorating has become more involved in recent years. To make your house stand out from others on the block, consider adding some lights to your porch to make it easy to see your spooky decorations. There is no need to invest in a designated set for this holiday. Instead, repurpose your solar christmas lights by shrouding them in a bit of fake spider web to make them feel scary.
Brighten A Winter’s Night
Of course, there is no need to confine your use of lights only to those times when you have something to celebrate (even if they are solar string lights). When the leaves have fallen from the trees, add a few sets of white solar powered lights to the trees in your yard. It will brighten your night and enhance the beauty of your yard from the street.
The creative use of string lights will enable you to add to the beauty of the exterior of your home as well as your landscaping. No matter what time of year it may be, these lights are a great way to put you and your family in the mood to celebrate.
