Looking for some cool spring and summer patio inspiration? A few strands of lights can help you create that perfect outdoor dining space you always wanted. Don’t forget to use candle-lit lanterns. They complement both string lights and outdoor fire perfectly. Instead of using multiple candles in a lantern, try using two to three lanterns.

Also, remember string lights aren’t only for the summer. They are just as suitable for breezy fall nights. Summer or fall, string lights can add energy to your outdoor gatherings and help set the mood.

  1. Cozy Up The Living Space

Strands of string lights and comfortable outdoor furniture can go a long way in lightening up the backyard — so much so that we promise it will become your family’s new favorite room.
