Since Spring officially sprung last weekend, I'm getting all hot and bothered just thinking about entertaining in the backyard. Before I can invite guests over for a sizzling soiree, I've got to revamp my digs and turn the muddy mess into a magical retreat.
My first step in transforming it will be to add some lantern lights. Draped along fences or above-head from tree to tree, the small lights add a spark of sassy sophistication to any outdoor evening event. Sure I could settle for Christmas lights, but why would a gal do that when there are affordable and elegant strings of colorful balls, eyelet paper, and tin flowers that can brighten up the darkness and the mood?
