Al Fresco Dining with Globe Lights


With warm weather here to stay, we are finding ourselves coming up with any excuse to dine al fresco with our friends. The perfect addition to any space? A string or three of globe lights to illuminate your space as you reach for that second glass of wine at sunset. I found some of my favorite outdoor dining spaces that show off this beautifully practical accessory, just in time for these warm spring nights.

This outdoor party is made so pretty with the twinkling of the globe lights above by Nicole Polk Photography via Style Me Pretty.

The globe lights are powerful in multiples and can be strung simply, in multiple rows like this Lobster Dinner via Après Fête.

Globe lights shouldn’t be reserved for special occasions – these are a permanent installment in this beautiful Echo Park backyard via Apartment Therapy.

An equally gorgeous alternative to strands of globe lights? Hanging over a hundred bulbs over the outdoor dining table. We can’t get over how gorgeous this Bali wedding reception is with photography by Studio Impressions Photography via Style Me Pretty.
