Festoon lights are strings of lights with large bulbs hung loosely, creating a soft focus glow reminiscent of vintage fairgrounds and lending themselves to a variety of moods and uses.
When used indoors festoon lights provide a gentle luminosity which is ideal for weddings and indoor parties, providing a warmth and atmosphere similar to the gentleness of candlelight. Festoons can be combined with hanging paper lanterns to shed a soft romantic glow onto event spaces.
Also when used outdoors, festoon lights can be used to create markers for pathways and also to add a subtle but much needed light for barbeques or garden parties. The ethereal glow of these lights is less glitzy than pealights, providing a retro or vintage feel to events.
The long strings of lights are connectable, making it easy to light large spaces such as Marquees or gardens. Festoon lights are an effective way to light areas of varying size and shape, and can be combined with bunting or flower garlands for rustic events, or used indoors alongside glass candelabras to compliment table settings at indoor events to create a sophisticated effect.
Additionally, festoon lights can be used to highlight key smaller areas as opposed to lighting an entire event space. The lights can be used in alcoves or by seating areas to enhance a relaxed and inviting area within the main space.
