Are you ready for the unofficial start of summer? Memorial Day weekend is the much-anticipated beginning of warmer summer weather sticking around in the Twin Cities (or so we hope). To mark the occasion, homeowners around St. Paul and Minneapolis are throwing backyard barbecues while those with cabins up north or homes on the lake are putting their docks in and hosting the first bonfires of the season.
No matter how you are celebrating Memorial Day weekend, chances are you will be planning to spend the weekend outdoors (and every summer weekend until the leaves begin to turn). Could your outdoor space use an update? Have you been meaning to get around to adding outdoor lighting so you could spend more time on the deck, dock, patio, or playing yard games after dark? Don’t wait until you are mid-party this summer to think about it again. Take action now to create a summer full of outdoor fun, this summer and every summer from now on!
Summer Party Outdoor Lighting Ideas
What is your favorite outdoor space? Start there.
Yard games all day? Consider adding outdoor lighting to your sand volleyball court, horseshoe court, or open lawn where whiffle ball, kickball, and can jam are enjoyed.
Chilling in the Adirondack on the dock with a beer? Add dock lighting so you can fill the cooler and stay on the dock all day and well into the night.
Dinner on the patio? Add patio lighting to enhance function and set the perfect mood for drinks and dessert after dinner is cleared.
Brand new firepit or outdoor fireplace? With hardscape lighting added to your sitting walls and under the capstones, you’ll enjoy an easy ambiance and visibility when the embers begin to fizzle.
Is your deck the gathering place during parties? With deck lighting or permanent festive string lighting you can encourage guests to hang out, stay outside, and enjoy the fireflies as late as the neighbors will withstand!
Summer in the Twin Cities is short. And while most of us love parts of winter (or we wouldn’t be here) all of us want to make every moment of summer count.
