Outdoor String Lights Hung
I have been pinning and pining for outdoor string lights for ages. It's just one of those things that lingered on my future to-do list but I never quite got around to. Mostly because I wasn't sure how to hang them and for some reason, figuring it out seemed daunting. Well, as you can see, my backyard now has string lights hung - turns out it wasn't all that difficult after all. Needless to say, I love them! I'm not sure why I waited so long!
It was Christmas in July when I got a wonderful gift from the nice people at Birch Lane. They sent over 2 sets of these Edison bulb outdoor string lights just for me! (In case you haven't heard, Birch Lane is new online source for classic home decor and furniture at reasonable prices.)
Because I didn't want to have to take them down at the end of every season, I wanted something heavy duty and this fit the bill perfectly. I literally had no more excuses - off I went to figure out the best way to hang them. In the end, I used eye hooks, turnbuckles, cable ties and the muscles of my better half to string the lights from the deck to our backyard trees.
It only took a few hours and now we have a little bit of drama in the backyard. Like a great party is about to start every night. Love!
