If this is your first time entertaining, or you've moved to a new home with an outdoor space, you might be itching to plan a great winter holiday party. With weather permitting, using a deck, patio, or yard as part of your entertaining space can be a great way to vary the look of a holiday gathering and give guests an outdoor option. Of course, once you add the outdoors to the mix, lighting becomes an important concern. Before you start decking your halls, here are a few tips to make stringing lights for an outdoor Christmas or holiday party safe and easy.
One of the biggest concerns for lighting outdoors is making sure that all lights are safe for you and your guests. Check outdoor circuits for any potential fuse problems or sparking, and secure all cords safely out of the way. Be sure to use outdoor-safe lights that are weatherproof; our beautiful, multi-colored Lunaxia lantern strands are perfect for this; they are rainproof and excellent for both indoor and outdoor use!
