Party and String Lights in Dallas
String lights are an exceptional way to create a festive atmosphere outdoors. From trees wrapped in soft, white lights to string lights draped under a reception tent, there are several options you can choose to illuminate your special event.
What Are String Lights?
String lights – sometimes called decorative lights or fairy lights – are decorative powerhouses. Made to illuminate any space, these lights come in a wide range of styles, shapes and even colors, which makes them the perfect complement to your outdoor decor. You can completely customize a look for any event, and our team at Dallas Landscape Lighting is here to help you do it.
How Can String Lights Add to the Ambiance at a Party?
String lights can wrap around trees to create beautiful silhouettes, hung from branches or inside party tents to add visual appeal, or draped over balconies to make things more magical.
If you have a vision in mind, that’s great – we’d love to hear about it – but it’s okay if you don’t, because our team has all the experience necessary to outfit your space with just the right lights. Dallas Landscape Lighting can design, develop and implement a plan that helps you pull off the perfect decor for any gathering.
Style Options for Party and String Lights
Party and string lights come in a wide range of styles, including tiny “fairy” lights, Edison bulbs, globes and more. You can choose what’s right for your outdoor event based on the amount of illumination you need, whether you’ll be using it as accent lighting, and what type of event you’re holding.

Types of String Light Bulbs and Party Light Bulbs
Much like traditional Christmas lights, string and party lights are available with a huge range of bulb styles. Some of the most popular include:
- LED festoon lights. Festoon lights are usually globe-shaped, but they’re sometimes shaped like traditional bulbs. They come on strings that we can hang between poles or along beams, as well as on fences and between posts. They’re called festoon lights because of the Latin term festum, which means feast.
- Lantern string lights. Lantern string lights are designed to look like paper lanterns, but they’re made from tarpaulin (a durable material that’s more like cloth, and that’s far more suitable for outdoor use than paper is). Lantern string lights they typically feature LED bulbs inside.
- Vintage-style string lights. Vintage-style string lights look like antique bulbs – the kind from the early days of electricity. With a wire inside that produces a warm, golden glow, these bulbs are ideal for creating lower-level illumination and ambiance.
- Fairy string lights. Fairy string lights create a truly magical look. They’re tiny and a bit reminiscent of fireflies, which makes them an ideal choice when you’re going for a whimsical environment. These types of lights create a starry look when hung from the inside of a tent or the ceiling of a patio.
- Rope lights. Rope lights are clear or colored PVC encasing LEDs, and they’re most commonly used in open spaces outdoors. You can use them to illuminate walkways, patios and terraces, and the bases of sculptures.
- Edison bulb lights. Edison bulbs feature a classic shape – the same as the inventor created himself – and they fall into a similar category to vintage-style string lights. These bulbs look great draped from post to post on a patio, hanging overhead in a tent or gazebo, or illuminating the area above a swimming pool.

Party Light Setup Basics
When our team sets up your party lights, we may use trees, banisters, special lighting poles and ceilings. It all depends on your vision and what we’re trying to accomplish with the lighting.
For example, if you want lights over your swimming pool for a party, we can place lighting poles in appropriate locations around the pool to provide the illumination you want. Likewise, if you want a tree wrapped with lights for an evening wedding, we’ll use the tree and provide all the necessary hardware to get the job done.
That’s the thing about working with Dallas Landscape Lighting: Our team comes prepared for everything. We provide all the supplies, from the hardware necessary to hang up the lights to the power cords that keep them illuminated. You don’t have to worry about a thing because we have it all covered.
