Fireflies and lanterns: a soft intimate setting for romantics.
Do you love the burning flame of candles, but don’t want to give up gazing up at the stars? The solution for you are lanterns, or strings of hanging LED or incandescence lightbulbs. Drape them around the structure and you’ll obtain an alluring effect. Choose lights and lanterns designed for out of doors, or remove them immediately after supper to avoid short circuits. Aside from purchasing different kinds of lights to brighten your gazebo and outdoor areas, you can also resort to DIY solutions. For example, you can place small candles inside little glass jars and hang them, or arrange them on the table. The effect is guaranteed and the moon will not be dimmed.
Spotlights and floor lamps: for those who like to see clearly.

Aside from the aforementioned candles, you can get LED strings and wrap them around the serving dishes at the center of the table. Or wind them around colored glass bottles, turning them into unique lamps. Choose warm lights that aren’t too intense so as not to risk blinding your guests. After all, that’s what you’re there for.
