Photo from Target.comThere's so much to do in the backyard during the summer! Gardening, playing with the dog (and picking up poop) or washing the dog, reading a book, camping out, barbecuing. And don't get me started on how great it is to sit outside after the sun goes down and sip a cold beer with my husband. Heaven.
After eight years of living in my home, I finally convinced my husband to string up some outdoor lights that we leave up year round. Oh what a difference! Now I can read outside when the sun goes down, we can play backyard games, and don't forget about that beer!
I want you to enjoy your backyard in the evening as much as I do my own, so I've found some pretty, (somewhat) inexpensive ways for you to light up your backyard this summer. It's a great way to brighten things up for any summer entertaining you have planned too!
$14.99, World MarketPretty sure I could live in World Market. Especially if these Copper Dragonfly String Lights were strung up everywhere. For $14.99, you get nine feet of these adorable indoor/outdoor lights.
$158.99, Restoration HardwareIf you have money to burn (or acres to light up), this Industrial Light String from Restoration Hardware might be what you need. And before you choke on the $158.99 price tag, know that you're getting 50 feet of lights for your money. But it's still a lot of money for backyard lights.
$29, WalmartEven eco-friendly backyard lighting can look cool! Wal-Mart's Life Solar Decor Solar Speckled Glass Globe Lights are sold in a 2-pack for $29. Each one is 2 feet high, automatically lights at dusk, and the light changes from red to blue to green! Pretty.
