Today, anyone interested in making a magical lighting display for a wedding or party at an outdoor location can find everything from "Tiki" light torches, nets of twinkling "star" lights, orb-shaped lanterns that spread beams in all directions and even fountains that cascade gentle streams of water. For example, an outdoor summer wedding would require no heavy generators or hard to manage flames in order to create an elegant lighting scheme. Instead they could simply install sets of unique and innovative "bollard" lights along all of the paths and walkways, or even create a custom "dance floor" on a grassy area by surrounding it with these simple, subtle and gentle solar lights.
Most residential neighborhoods, especially those in the suburbs or upstate areas, do not have a lot of lights lighting up the private spaces. The roads may be well lit, unless you are driving on a not so important highway, but the private premises which would include everything from your driveway to the backyard, your patio to the backdoor will not be well lit. Lets face it, no one likes going to the dark side of the property at night.
Lighting your patios, walkways, gardens and other outdoor areas can be both an art and a science. From the science point of view, when choosing the right bulb or fixture, you should think of the practicalities. From the art point of view, how the bulb or fixture affects the beauty of the outdoor areas is usually considered. Thanks to improvements in bulb and fixture technologies, these two perspectives can go hand and hand these days.
Its about that time again. The beauty of the sunset has passed you by, the natural lighting is nearly behind the horizon, and you and your guests are not ready to stop the party. And (alas!) your township does not permit bonfires in your neighborhood. So, how will you keep the fun going after the sun goes down?
