There are ways you can save money. First look at your garden and decide where you are planning to put the lights. Then you search your home for items that you may be able to use.

Don't overdo the selection, plan it carefully.
Lighting should be available where food is being cooked and served. Any pathways that are dark should be lighted with your lights. Be sure steps are well lit and easily accessible.
It you are using candles, you may choose to float a few. Any water feature can accept a candle. If you don't have a built in water feature, you can take a large bowl or other type vessel and float your candle in it along with some open flowers. Use caution when using candles around children.
Hang your decorative outdoor lighting before your party. Check out the ambiance and location of all of your lights before your party begins. Do not hesitate to ask for a second opinion from a friend.
Your only limitations are those placed upon yourself. A healthy dose of imagination can provide you with the exact type of entertaining area you and your guests will enjoy. Be creative.
