Outdoor Lighting

As the days here shorten and night falls earlier we have to find simple solutions to allow us to entertain while still enjoying the temperate evenings.  To light the way we found these pretty bottle lanterns and hung them from our canopy which covers our outdoor living room.


Each bottle holds a cup for a tealight and hangs from a chain and hook.



The Suburban Prince added more chain and hung the bottle lanterns from varying lengths.  The effect is quite dramatic at night - a wall of candlelight.

Don't miss my Back to School giveaway!  It is in the post below!


Have a fabulous day!

What a terrific solution to outdoor lighting. I enjoy entertaining outdoors and as we lose the light, it's nice to know that there is such an inventive way to light the night.
