String lights add a touch of low-glow ambience to any outdoor setting. Inspired by French streetside cafés and bistros, commercial string lights offer just enough illumination to cook, party, gather, or entertain outdoors without being too harsh or overwhelming. They are simple to install, can be daisy-chained to any length, and add a touch of class to every environment. Here are a few places where decorative string lights shine.
