The summertime is my favorite time of the year to bring friends and family together and entertain, especially since my husband and I have more leeway to entertain after moving into our first home last winter. Sadly, this season is winding down fast and it will not be long before the outdoor entertainment is reserved for the next summer. Only if we lived in a warmer climate where we could have al fresco events throughout the year! This is why we’ve been celebrating the last days of summer since we know that the temperatures will begin to drop and the cooler weather will settle in for the autumnal season.
My best friend caught me by a surprise by gifting me with a bistro set last month as a belated birthday gift. It came at the right time since I had been in the midst of giving my patio a makeover. It’s perfect for outdoor dining and entertainment. It is also exquisitely beautiful with watercolor mosaic tiles on the tabletop. It enhances my outdoor living space while making it more comfortable and expressing my personal style. In addition, it’s weather-resistant and well-made. Next spring, I want to give the coordinating chairs pizazz with colorful pillows.
I also want to add more lounge chairs and side tables. I want to have serving tables and storage cabinets when I entertain family and friends. The furniture will complete and make the most of my patio.
#EnbrightenLife with Jasco
Lighting is one of the most elements to add to any space. It’s crucial when you’re entertaining outdoors in the evening. I can’t think of better lighting than the Jasco Enbrighten Café Lights (available in 12 – 48 ft.; $39.99 – $99.99). Cafe lights are often seen at European sidewalk cafés and hole-in-the-wall coffee houses to weddings and big-ticket events.
Jasco makes it effortlessly easy to recreate the look and beautifully illuminate any space in your home. Their café lights evoke an atmosphere that’s delightfully warm, inviting, and relaxing, whether you’re entertaining guests or having a romantic dinner for two out on the patio. You can even use them year-round outdoors since they’re weather-proof. They’re also energy-efficient and can be used in conjunction with the GE MyTouchSmart™ Indoor/Outdoor Plug-In Digital Timer to save even more energy and money!
Those lights look amazing. I would use them to brighten my garden during the holidays.
I am loving those lights. I think there is something special about sitting outside on the deck under some strings of lights.
This is a really great way to spruce up your backyard and celebrate the last days of summer. I love these lights.
Those cafe lights are just the thing to set the mood for a private space. I would definitely use them in my patio area.

I love lights like this! I would fill my entire yard with these lights! They make the mood more relaxed and fun!
Unfortunately, at this time, I live in an apartment. My daughter, however, would use these lights in her bedroom for soft lighting. When I get my camper in a few years and become a full time RVer, (hopefully!) I would attach them to the awning to have lighting outside when I’m sitting out there, communing with nature :).
So hard to believe that summer over!!! These lights look amazing, what a great touch to the outdoors!

I really love the Jasco lights. I added them to my outdoor patio and created a lovely outdoor living room! Love that they’re connectable and so cute!
Okay, that lighting makes me wish that summer really wasn’t over., and I loooooove fall. I mean I live for the PSL. Haha!
I’m digging the lights, they are a great way to transform any space. Kudos to the BFF, that table set is really nice.
We have some trees just off our deck in the back, but they’re not big enough yet. Once they’ve grown for a few years, I want to hang lights between them and the house to further illuminate the deck because it’s SO fun the late night of summer.
I have been looking for the perfect lights to use on my patio for entertaining. Jasco Embrighten Cafe lights sounds like they would work well.
Yes, it is hard to believe summer is over. The lighting is pretty and a great way to enjoy the evening.
These are super cute lights! I’ve been looking for good lighting.
Love those lights! Believe it or not my hubby and I have been looking for lights this these! We’re so buying these now! Thanks!
Super cute!! Hmmmm…now I need a bistro set…those lights would look adorable over my porch!!
What a great addition to your home and a nice gift from your friend. Happy belated birthday!
Those lights are great. I think it would be really nice if we could set some up on our patio. They’d definitely set a nice mood.
I’m a big fan of cafe lighting so these would be a perfect element to add to my patio area!
Oh, those lights are great. I’d use them on my back deck by my pool!
Those outdoor lights looks really dainty. I love it and these will transition well into the fall.
The addition of the lighting is perfection. They add a nice glow and ambience to the patio area, which is great for a quite night outdoors or for a larger party.
Lovely photos! We live in Arizona, so summer lasts a long time for us.
These lights are beautiful! I love that they brighten up your outdoors and keep that summer vibe just a little bit longer 🙂
These lights are so cute! I actually already have some bulb lights that I hung inside my apartment 🙂 They add so much warmth to the room!
I love those kinds of lights! It would be best for our garden 🙂
Having an area like this in the backyard would be so awesome. I really love having breakfast outside and just savoring the morning sun! It’s going to be cold soon and that’s one of the things that I’m going to miss. I am loving your set, it’s really perfect for outdoor dining.

I love that type of bulbs! They would add romance to any evening. Thank you for discovering them to me.
String lights are always so fun. Love how you used them on your patio, they go perfectly with the starry night!
We have been hosting so many outdoor get-togethers with friends this summer! I love how the lights brighten up the place and add a great light.

I would put these lights on my patio. It would be nice to have them out there for when we sit on the patio in the evenings.
These lights would make a lovely decor to any patio or deck. I’d love to have them on my patio! We spend lots of time in the early evenings out there just relaxing.
I would use them around the koi pond. I enjoy sitting out there with my coffee in the morning and relaxing there in the evening.
Those lights are the cutest! I totally want them for my house next summer. They are a great mix of style and charm.
I would use them around our deck.
Omg how fabulous are those lights?!?! They would look pretty killer on my back patio
