Outdoor Dining

One of the best ways to enjoy your backyard during the summer is to have outdoor dining. With the right lighting, you can create a beautiful and intimate dining experience. Our firefly glass globes can be hung above the dining area, creating a warm and cozy atmosphere. Spotlights can be used to highlight the dining table, while path lights can be used to light the way to the dining area.
