A luau without patio lights is like a luau without food — it's simply unimaginable, especially when a summer party lasts into the night.
Set the scene with island-themed outdoor string lights (which work equally well indoors) — light strands with mini bulbs in plastic casings shaped like Tiki idols, plumeria flowers, flip flops, and even beer cups, or fabric casings shaped like lanterns.
Patio lights are use standard 120V AC current and are equipped with end-to-end plugs, allowing you to connect several strings together.
Bulbs are replaceable; most string lights come with extra bulbs and fuses, saving you a possible trip to the hardware store.
In the rare event that bulbs do burn out, other bulbs in the light string will continue to glow — and guests will hardly notice the difference.
