As the long summer days melt into balmy nights, ease the transition -- and extend the pleasure -- by dining outdoors under a private starry dome of twinkling candles. Hanging a set of miniature glass lanterns from your patio umbrella not only creates the effect of a magical chandelier, it also makes more table space for an inventively placed centerpiece.
Don’t let the setting sun determine the end of your time outside. Outdoor lighting can brighten up your house, turn a patio into an outdoor room, or set a romantic mood.
