    ideas for lighting an outdoor garden party!

    thank you all for all of your fantastic ideas lately. i seem to have a lot of crafty questions this week!

    i'm having a little gathering for my bday next week in my friend's garden. i was wondering if anyone has good lighting ideas? since i've never had to light an outdoor space i'm fairly clueless. at his last party he had tea lights in paper bags. that became a disaster once they would fall over and catch fire!

    thank you in advance-

    did he put sand in the bottoms of the bags? that's what we did and it helps stabilize them....

    or little bowls of water with floating candles (not a lot of light tho...)

    the only other way i've lit an outdoor party was to use the massive amount of christmas tree lights that we have and put them all over the trees (this was for my friend's outdoor wedding) and it looked so magical!

    yes, i love christmas lights for an outdoor party. there are also paper lanterns you can string along outside. don't forget there will be a lot of light this time of year until 9 p.m. if you live in the US. a little bit will go a long way. i've even brought out little table lamps and plugged them in outside for short term.

    Mosquitos are the real problem when you are trying to do something like that

    Hello dude. As far as I see, you are going to have a party in your yard soon. So, your yard should look beautiful when they guest arrivel! I think you definitely need to Trim That Weed and ofc course, the newest tools are necessary for it. Now it is much easier to have a beautiful garden with cool and tidy lawn.
