I really hope your holiday weekend was great, I know for us military wives we got the added advantage of a 4-day weekend! Anyway, as I was celebrating my mind went into event planning mode (as usual!) and I started thinking how much lighting plays into the mood and decor of an event.
Considering I celebrated on a boat, there wasn't much lighting... however I couldn't stop from thinking how we could have dressed the boat up a bit. Mood lighting is always a great idea for events. Most people tend to lean towards paper lanterns and while those are nice, I just found hanging LED lanterns which are seriously cool and no outlet is necessary! Check them out:
Then I started to think about all the backyard BBQ's that I had attended on previous Independence Day's. I think fire pits are an amazing thing to have especially in a party setting. My parents had one and all of us kids loved to make s'mores while the adults would sit around chatting and sipping on their drinks.I couldn't resist posting a picture of this fire pit, it reminds me of summer nights enjoying a mini bon-fire after a long day at the beach.
Speaking of events, I am currently in the middle of planning a baby shower for a friend (yes, another one...all of my friend's are becoming mommy's, and no I'm not jumping on the bandwagon anytime soon!). I think a light to match the theme of the baby's room would be an amazing shower gift that could double as a decoration for the actual shower itself. Look at this elephant, is that not cute? PS: He's on sale!
That's my take on event lighting!
Hope you are all having a great week.
I will have a very iffy internet connection for the next 6ish days, so there will (most likely) be no posting until next Wednesday... but I WILL check my e-mail to get the info for my summer essentials swap partner =)
