Now that you’ve done the hard part of getting your landscape lighting installed, it’s time to have some fun and enjoy your backyard. But this begs the question of what to do. Look no further because we have you covered with four great ways to have a magical evening under your new backyard lighting.
Have a Romantic Dinner By Landscape Lighting
Enlist the help of the kids or order in takeout and have a romantic dinner for two that’s lit by your landscape lighting. Put your smartphones away and enjoy the company of your significant other without outside distractions of social media or the TV. Let the lighting set the mood and the environment set the conversation. You and your loved will can have a romantic date night without leaving the comfort of your home.
Family Movie Night
Bring back the drive-in movie theater by setting up a projector in the backyard. Once the suns goes down, you can throw a sheet over a clothesline strung from two trees and use it as a screen. If you can’t hang a clothesline, project the picture to the side of the house. You don’t have a projector? No problem! Grab a TV and bring it out to your patio table. Set out blankets on the ground or gather with lawn chairs to watch your favorite family flick. Leave the landscape lighting aglow to provide subtle background lighting for your theater-like setting.
Host a Party
Invite friends and family over for an evening of fun and games under your backyard lighting. Bring out the backyard games like cornhole, horseshoes, and bocce. They are easy enough for all ages to participate but challenging enough to keep everyone interested. Add a couple of tables on the patio to have desserts or snacks for all as you show off your new outdoor living space.
Have a Cookout
Whether you’re hosting a party or simply want to share a meal with some friends, you’re no longer limited to having a cookout that ends with the sunset. Instead, call in for some catering or fire up the grill and cook some delicious hamburgers, hot dogs, or chicken. Assign a side dish for everyone that complements the main dish, and you’ll have an outstanding cookout. Eating and socializing can easily extend past the daylight hours without feeling encumbered by darkness.
