    Painted Tin Can Lights - freeze cans before drilling. I think it would be easier to use a paint sprayer. Use your wedding colors. Maybe, if using big paint cans- put a bunch of string lights in one can, if using soup cans- 1 bulb in each can. Could line the isle with them.

Outdoor Sink Makes Water Recycling Simple - This sink is ridiculously easy to make from "found" or repurposed parts (try Habitat for Humanity ReStores). The sink is hooked up to an outdoor hose (no plumbing) and water from it goes into a simple 5 gallon bucket to collect grey water that can be used on landscape. Now instead of going inside to wash garden produce, it can be done at the outdoor sink.

Coat the yellow plastic cup on the outside, with Tree Tanglefoot, a very sticky substance that doesn’t wash off. The aphids are attracted to the color yellow, they fly onto the cups and the Tanglefoot catches them.
