With the Richmond area’s fabulous weather, it’s no wonder why people enjoy entertaining outdoors for large parts of the year. Right now we’re in the crux of event planning be it a wedding, graduation party, birthday party or just a casual barbecue with friends and family. As you hammer out the details of food, beverage and décor, you may want to put outdoor lighting on the list as well.
If you’ve visited our site before, you know the benefits of professionally designed outdoor and landscape lighting. Well, those benefits extend to festive and string lighting that work so well for events. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives has been providing clients with these options for years, but what are your options?
Temporary Outdoor and Landscape Lighting
For some outdoor events, using classic outdoor lighting techniques is perfect. You can accentuate the beauty of the property and event space, but also guide guests to different areas and increase the safety. For example, temporary path lights can be placed along the traveled pathways (be them paved or unpaved), guiding friends and family safely to where the party is taking place. You may also decide to place lights on trees, structures, etc. to highlight the space.
For temporary lighting, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives will come out to the property and place lights for you. They will simply need to be turned on for the event and then we’ll come and pick up the lights after the event is complete.
If you want to add event more ambiance, ask us about the color options to match your décor!
String lights are not just for the holidays anymore. Becoming more and more popular as permanent outdoor lighting fixtures, string bistro lights add a certain “je ne sais quoi” to an outdoor space. Not only are they charming, but they do provide adequate illumination that will keep your guests outdoors long after the sun goes down.
String lights can be hung over an outdoor space or wrapped around railings.
Festive Tree Lighting
If you’re looking for something a little more fun or whimsical, festive tree lighting may be the right choice for your next event. Used primarily for holiday lighting, our laser operated lighting fixtures shoot colored lights at trees (or other surfaces) resulting in a glowing effect. They are easily placed and charged making it simple for homeowners to use for events or just the normal night in the backyard.
