Outdoor lighting. Christmas lights for summer

After reading the title you will think that I have lost the little judgment that I am supposed to have, but no, it has not given me to mount the Bethlehem or to decorate the Christmas tree again. What I want to propose is a outdoor lighting very suggestive for the impending summer, either on time, to set a party or dinner on the terrace or garden, or as a counterpoint to highlight and add mystery to an outdoor corner.

And nothing better than taking advantage of Christmas lights who sleep sad and bored at the bottom of a box, waiting for the year to return to take center stage. Personally I would run away from multicolored garlands, focusing my preference on those of White light.

As for the cadence, we already know that these garlands usually have several rhythms to choose from, from the fixed light, to what I call "the pyrotechnic festival", when the lights come on and off in a very fast, marking a psychedelic rhythm

My recommendation is as follows: if we choose the fixed light, we will leave behind many Christmas reminiscences, but if we want to give it movement, we must choose a soft and discreet rhythm, so that our homemade evening does not become the village fair.

And how do we place them? We can place them on the floor next to the walls, delimiting the edges, curled up on the railings, suspended at the top, topping the cornices, or placing them on the windowsills. If we have trees, its branches will be a perfect place to suspend the small lights, but avoiding a Christmas aesthetic. In this way, if we can choose between lighting a fir or a pruno, we will opt for the latter.

Some large lanterns, in which instead of candles we place inside light garlands, they will surely attract attention and offer a little seen and original nuance; but take care that the garland has an adequate size, which is not too large, so that it does not look crowded inside the lantern.

The key to success is that nothing reminds of Christmas, so we will dispense with allegorical motifs: no star-shaped lights, reindeer, or bells, we will use only garlands of pure and hard light bulbs. And of course, we will take care that they are specifically designed for outdoor use.
