Outdoor Patio Lights and Party Themes Make the Night Special

Your patio is the extension of your living room. And summer, with extended hours of daylight, is the perfect time to extend your parties out onto the patio, deck, and into the yard—and with the right lighting, the party can extend well into the night! Outdoor patio lights and special party themes will make your outdoor summer parties memorable.

The Ambience that People Want

Restaurants with outdoor seating offer something that people want—the outdoor dining experience. A leisurely lunch, an evening celebration with friends, or a romantic dinner are more appealing in an outdoor setting with ambience. Whether it’s a rooftop terrace, an intimate outdoor café, an outdoor wine and coffee bar on a second story patio, an elegant restaurant with a breathtaking lake view, or a table for six at a covered beer garden — restaurants with outdoor seating are in demand.

UL or Underwriter's Laboratory is an independent product certification organization, which creates standards and tests electrical and other products, for many U.S. and foreign manufacturers. UL has become the industry standard for safety certification of electronic devices in the U.S. This certification is not a legal requirement, but most reputable companies who manufacture or sell electronic devices, seek the UL certification.

Purple LED Christmas Lights have become very popular in the last several years. We receive several inquiries each and every month wanting to know which Purple LED Christmas light bulb is the “truest” purple. There has been much discussion, between employees and customers over this very question, and a conclusion is still being debated over. This is because everyone’s definition of what a “true purple” is, is different.

The energy savings, costs savings, and safety of LED Christmas lights are wonderful, but one of the coolest things about Christmas LED lights, is that they can do so much more than traditional incandescent Christmas lights. One of my favorite new products is the morphing LED light set. This light set consist of 5MM wide angle LEDs that are mostly warm white bulbs - but here’s what makes them so cool – Every 5th bulb morphs!

It is interesting to watch the progression and changes that a new product undergoes. LED Christmas lights are no exception. When LED Christmas lights first became widely available, most sets featured replaceable bulbs. However higher quality, 1-piece construction sets, soon became available.
