Showcase your outdoor space.
Festoon lights (also known as café lights or party lights) are those traditional, big bulb garland lights you see hanging at fairgrounds, typically in movies from the 1950s. They’re the oversized glass globes, usually in warm whites or multi colored, and they’re so very in right now as outdoor festoon lighting has absolutely taken off in recent years. That said, if you haven’t got involved yet, now’s the time.
Festoon lights are the perfect choice for many a special occasion. Particularly popular for weddings, Lights by Sparky lights are manufactured to withstand the elements which means you can use them outdoors even if it’s raining. The festoon lighting option is a great alternative to your standard fairy lights for wedding venues, and fit especially well with vintage or retro wedding themes.
We also love festoon lights for special events and at Christmas. Warm white LEDs with translucent cases and white cable look super festive and can be used throughout your whole home, from indoor hallway lights to outdoor tree lights. Many of our festoon lights are actually connectable, meaning you can link multiple strings together and power from one socket – useful if you’ve got a particularly long hallway or an especially large tree.
For outdoor barbecues, a few strings of party lights never go amiss. Pop them up at the beginning of the summer and you’ll find that you use your outdoor space a whole lot more than you have done in previous years, simply because the lights make it so amazing. Be ready because all your friends will want to come over to your place to admire them often. Best stock up on the burgers and charcoal.
