This week, Brendan turns 30! I’ve finally talked him into a big ol’ party. Because our house is tiny and our backyard is huge, we are going to be doing it all in the backyard. Let’s just hope this heat holds off until at least the end of the weekend.
One of the biggest problems with hanging out in the backyard at night is lighting. Especially if there’s a lot of people. So, here’s some of the affordable options I might just attempt.
Simple bistro lights on tall wooden poles are for sure my favorite, but I’ve just got to figure out how to get those pole either in the ground or maybe in large pots?
These candles in jars seem like the most practical option for us. We’ve got loads of mason jars and they are so versatile that even if I have to buy more then we will totally use them in the future.
I really like this glowing balloon garland. You put a glow stick in the balloon and it acts like a globe. The idea is super cool but it seems like it might be a lot of waste.
These firefly jars with glow sticks I love but not sure they would have enough impact for the yard.
Have you tried any of these? Do the glow stick ones work?
