Updated on July 25, 2016

Let's Play Outdoors

It's summer.... that means lots of barbeques, swimming and games. Most of us will be braving the hot outdoors hanging with friends and family. While the beach is a summer stamp, home is where the heart is. So, make the outside of your home look amazing with outdoor lanterns and string lights. Enjoy these Hexagon Lanterns from Anthropologie. They come in small, medium and large and look great in the day and night lights. Use them for decoration during the day and a romantic setting at night.


You might want to go a bit more extravagant with outdoor patio or garden parties with string lights. When the twilight glows these lights will shine bright. It's best to use solar lights. String lights easily turn a daytime cookout to a nighttime extravaganza and the flicker of twilight. Innoo Tech Solar Outdoor String Lights are a must for the summer!
