Light Up Your Next Event

String lights, in all their forms, are all the rage these days. They can be added to almost anything to bring a touch of magic to your event! String lights can be used as an elegant decoration, to bring attention to an object or space, or establish a sense of ambiance.

A Sense of Ambiance

Hang string lights behind a sheer curtain to diffuse and soften the appearance of string lights while creating a warm, elegant look. Combine our pipe and drape rental with our LED string lights for the ultimate effect!

Make It Personal

Personalize your event by strategically hanging string lights to form a word or shape of an object. The options are endless with this idea! Here are just a few:

  • A newlywed’s last name
  • A heart
  • “Love”
  • “Yum”
  • “Dance”
  • “Relax”
  • A tree
  • The geometric shape

Guiding Light

Tracing the outlines of objects can help draw attention to them! Have your string lights follow the shape of doorways of entrances for a sense of magic or line them up along a pathway to guide your guests in a certain direction.

Center of Attention

Battery operated fairy lights work great as part of a centerpiece! Using a large glass vase, lantern, or bottle, arrange the fairy lights within to create a dazzling centerpiece for your table. Add other elements to this combination as well to support the theme of your event such as flowers, shells, or holiday ornaments!

Picture This…

Create a photo wall by hanging string lights horizontally and attaching pictures between the bulbs. This is a popular idea for intimate affairs such as weddings, birthday parties, and more. Not only will your photo wall look amazing, but it will also give your guests something to interact with!

Light It Up

The most common way to use string lights is by hanging them overhead. For a creative twist, hang the lights in a zig-zag pattern or have them flow downward to create a beautiful backdrop.
