They are back!!!! Two years ago, we ordered five sets of these solar-powered globe string lights to criss-cross our patio. We were hosting Thanksgiving and the solar powered patio lights would add a canopy effect plus when combined with lots of candles, provide enough light even after sunset. We could not have been more pleased with the entire look and decided to keep the lights up year round.
The fact that these globe string lights are solar-powered was absolutely essential to my purchase decision making process. We do not have an outdoor outlet nearby so we would have had to either spend lots of money on an electrician or run the lights under the french doors into the living room. Neither of those solutions were acceptable. Instead, we were able to attach the lights' solar panels to the roof. I won't lie, you can see them but they are not a distraction or an eyesore. All was good.
That is until about a month ago when a wind storm hit the patio. The tape I used to attach the lights to the wire infrastructure I had created, was old and cracked and basically gave out. The lights fell and that was that. Ever since, I have been searching for a comparable product. After weeks and weeks of research we had an aha moment and finally checked Amazon and of course Amazon offers a large selection of solar powered globe string lights!
I wish I had a picture of the lights over our Thanksgiving tables, but you can definitely get my vision.
This year we are heading back to Connecticut for Thanksgiving so I sincerely doubt we will be eating dinner outside 🙁
Oops — I almost forgot. While I am ordering my new patio lights, I should go ahead and order my favorite giant pistachios with the double basket (to hold opened and unopened shells), It is the perfect hostess gift for pretty much any autumn or winter occasion.
