Whether your garden is an elegant lawn or a skimpy strip of grass, now is the time to get out there and enjoy it. These fun little treats will help you kick off summer in style, without breaking the bank.
Nothing says summer like an evening in a garden lit by the stars, the moon, and, er, your neighbor's motion-detector light. Never mind '- you can create a little mood-lighting of your own, Italian bistro-style, by hanging strands of twinkle lights. This year, forgo the tired old Christmas strand for Pier 1 Imports' Flower String Lights. These pretty charmers are crafted of pale-blue and green metal with punched-out flower patterns. We think the resulting Tinkerbell-like patterns of light will be the life of the party.
Strand of ten lights with bulbs, $19. Visit Pier1.com for details.
