Gifts Ideas in August

8eef7f59865ea79635a97a69cb62f932I know it’s a little early to talk about Christmas gifts as summer is still around us, but it will be December before you know…ask any kid what one of their favorite parts about Christmas is and they will tell you the lights.

That holds true for most adults, too, so it is no surprise that the lighting fashion of the holiday season has become a popular staple at many other events, such as weddings, backyard parties, proms, and charity galas. Making the choice in which style and type of lights is key to a successfully designed space.

Many of these events find themselves outside where outdoor lighting is required. Weather and climate can turn a lovely evening under the lights into a tragic event if the correct type of lighting is not used, therefore always use lighting specified for outdoor use if this is where the event will be held.

Outdoor rope lights sport a long list of pros when put up against outdoor string lights. Rope lights have some complexities in their design that enable them to display different settings, such as rapid blinking, slow runners, alternating colors, etc. The key feature in rope lighting is the plastic casing that surrounds the lights.
