Need a quick and comparatively inexpensive way to add a little nighttime ambience to your yard, porch and patio? I’ve always been inspired by Disneyland’s year-round white lights on their park trees and buildings. You can bring a little of that magic to your world by stringing strands of lights in your own yard.
To save money and re-purpose what you already have, you can re-use your traditional white Christmas tree lights (yes, even in the summer), or get a little fancy with specialty themed lights! Whatever look you choose, it will definitely add a lot of charm and ambience to your patio or walk ways!
I found some charming specialty string lights from Smith & Hawken online:
These lights are perfect for summer patio entertaining and a fun way to create a magical outdoor scene from your windows at night! You can even put them on a timer if you want to enjoy the lights for short periods of time after dark. I’ve seen variations of these string lights at Target and other discount stores, so look around and see what you can find! I love the magical look of white lights outside!
