Simple Decorating For Your End-Of-Summer Party: String Lights

Post image for Simple Decorating For Your End-Of-Summer Party: String Lights

Update: This post originally ran on May 26, 2012, but with the season winding down, we wanted to share some inspiration for decorating your end-of-summer parties with one easy element: string lights.

It is absolutely amazing what a string of lights can do. Immediately a so-so space can be transformed into a dreamy, whimsical wonderland. They’re so simple, yet so stunningly beautiful – and multifunctional too! You can use them inside or out; for holidays, parties, or just everyday life.

The magic of string lights is that when they’re around, the focus is never specifically on them – it’s on the overall feeling that they create within space they light as a whole. I love the look of hundreds of strands meticulously strung overhead from one end of a room to another — and I’m just as smitten with the feeling I get when I see one lone string of lights, draped imperfectly and without clear direction, over a charming metal headboard. If you haven’t experimented with string lights yet, I challenge you to try it out. I have a pretty strong feeling you won’t regret it.
