String Lights: Illuminate Your Summer

White holiday lights, when used tastefully, can be a good outdoor adornment year-round. But string lights are such a bargain, why not buy yourself a special set for Summer?

These outdoor accessories add an elegant effect to al fresco dining, and depending on the style you choose, string lights can give your patio an entirely new vibe, from Euro cafe style to down-home charm. Here are five of my favorite string lights for Summer.

We hung Cafe string lights off our dining room patio and they are such a hit. Not only do they look great outside but they look amazing from the inside. Here is a picture I posted of them on my blog:

I think the lights are pretty but notice how show them somewhat close up? There has to be a cord dangling from the umbrella somewhere!

Outdoor lighting can look 'classy' if it is done right and matches the furniture. I love the image you posted with the Pottery Barn lights. It overall looks like a backyard I would love to have.

I love the Pottery barn fish shades because they give me a tropical feel and reminds me of the years I grew up in a grass-hut overlooking the ocean

I have the worst problem getting the widgets to show up. But I like the lights in the picture!
