What Is Festoon Lighting?
If you are someone who likes to have gatherings or events that have an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere, you have probably heard of Festoon string lighting. But what exactly is Festoon string lighting and what will it do for your party or event? How can adding in aesthetic lighting change the entire outcome of whatever you have planned? In this story, we are going to go over what Festoon lighting is, how you can install it, and all of the places that you can use it so that you get the most out of the lighting that you buy.
First, let’s talk about what festoon lights are. festoon lights are often called string lights. It’s a simple name, but it describes exactly what the light is. It’s a bunch of little lights on a string. Think of a Christmas tree and the lights you wrap around it, except these are one solid color and not flickering and changing like the colors in a rainbow. These lights will bring an aesthetic aspect to any room that you put them in, and you can put them almost anywhere.
Next, we will talk about what exactly that previous statement means. You might be thinking that there is no way you can actually put these lights anywhere, but you can. These lights can often be found in offices and bedrooms because they are bright enough to give you light but dim enough to not cause eye strain or cause you to heat up your house and raise your power bill. Along with placing these lights all over your home, you can put them outside because they are water-resistant and the rain will not bother them if you put them up and it starts to storm. And you can also bring them to event venues as a last-minute decoration because they are easy to install and uninstall, which leads us to our next conversation.
How do you set up your festoon lights so that they won’t come crashing down during an event or in the middle of the night while you are asleep? To make sure that you set them up properly is not actually very hard. All that you have to do is find a place that you want your lights to hang, find something to attach them to or put a nail in to hold it into place and tie them so they are steady and won’t come loose. Setting up festoon lights is a lot like setting up fairy lights. If you are having trouble setting up your lights, you can go to YouTube and look for a video tutorial that will give you a step by step so that you set your lights up nicely.
Just make sure that when you are handling the lights, you have to be gentle. The lights may be resistant to water and rain, but they are still small light bulbs and you will need to be careful with them so that they don’t bust. If they do bust, you can buy replacement bulbs, but it is just easier for everyone if you throw out that light set and buy a new one completely.
So now that you know what festoon lights are you are probably looking forward to going out and buying some for yourself. Don’t let me stop you. Enjoy your new light set up, wherever you decide to put them. And remember to take lots of pictures.
