Local Expert Blog: Light Up The Night!

Saturday August 13th, 2022, 10:55am


Creating ambiance is a key component to planning any celebration.  Be it indoors or out, use lighting to set a mood, build on a theme, spruce up a dancefloor space or simply illuminate an area for guests.  As evening creeps in, step up your game and wow your guests with pops of colour in unexpected places.  Make your event one to remember and light up the night!

String Lighting

String lighting is one of the most versatile choices when it comes to lights that can be used both inside or outside, under a tent or strung in the trees.  The LED bistro lighting has a series of small bulbs that can create enough light to allow people to see, but not too much that the mood is lost.  If you’re renting a tent for your outdoor function, adding lights to the order is a no brainer, especially if you plan to go into the evening with your event.  Increase the string lighting and give the illusion of a night under the stars!

If dining “al fresco” is your preferred plan, affixing the bistro lights to surrounding fences, shrubbery or in the trees above can be a beautiful addition.  Be sure to discuss this when renting your lights as installation may or may not be included with your rental.

LED Cocktail Tables

Turning your vision into a “lit up” reality will often involve more than just string lighting.  Consider other things like candles on your tables, citronella tiki torches to keep the bugs at bay or a colourful disco ball over the dancefloor depending on the type of event you’re hosting.  Another super fun & extremely popular addition to the lighting game are the LED cocktail tables.  Kill two birds with one stone as you give guests a spot to place their drinks or pause for conversation, while at the same time creating bursts of colour and light throughout your party space.  These rechargeable tables come complete with remote control to select the colour or colours that best suit your theme.  Set them up around a pool or under a tent, scattered in the yard or strategically placed on a patio, the LED cocktail tables are perfect for any event!

Whatever lighting you choose, don’t forget to consider things like hydro sources, extension cords and proper fire safety if you are opting for candles and torches.  Make sure your rechargeable lights are fully charged and ready to go.  Plan ahead and be prepared to avoid last minute stress and to ensure your guests are wowed!
