Enjoy your summer – create ambiance without added heat!

The summer days are growing shorter and the nights are getting a little cooler but if you are like me you are trying to squeeze every last drop out this beautiful season.   This has been a fantastic summer, especially after the long winter many of us suffered through.  Overall the weather has been incredible, with hot sunny days perfect for the beach and warm pleasant evenings perfect for cocktail parties with friends.  I enjoy hosting gatherings all year round but especially take pleasure in hosting friends for dinner and drinks on warm summer nights.

If you are like me then creating ambiance for your get-togethers is a must.  Everything from the perfect lighting to the music must be considered.  Thankfully there are so many creative options to choose from when creating ambiance both inside and outside your home.

Aurora Glow String Solar Lights –

Check out these amazing solar powered sting lights from  Since the Aurora Glow Solar String Lights are solar powered, you won’t have to worry about having an electrical outlet nearby. Simply plant or mount the solar panel up to 13 feet away from the first light on the string and at night, a photo-sensor automatically turns on the string of lights to provide a festive atmosphere around your outdoor living space.
