It’s A Party Umbrella!

Posted by Dani on August 16, 2012


Check out this cute visual I get every time I look out my dining room window. Makes me feel like it’s time to par-tay! Like I should drop what I’m doing, grab some friends, some wine and some grilled shrimp appetizers and get busy having some fun. Even on days when nothing like that happens, it makes me feel like a party’s just around the corner. Very fun-inspiring.

Some time ago I purchased these cute Solvinden solar globe lanterns from Ikea, thinking I would use them to light up the trees alongside my patio somewhere. But I couldn’t quite find the right spot and so they sat in my basement. The other day I just popped them onto the spokes of my patio umbrella – perfect since there were 6 lanterns and 6 spokes. They look adorable – like the umbrella’s all dressed up and ready for some fun.

These lanterns look like paper ones, but are made out of weatherproof polyethylene. They power up during the day and glow after sundown, and come with an on/off switch. And they give you 12 hours of light on a full charge. The outdoor light on my patio is very harsh and I don’t like to use it at night. With these lanterns and some well placed candles, the place glows beautifully. At $12.99 each, I think they’re a steal.

Ikea’s Solvinden series of outdoor solar lights are well-designed and inexpensive. They are part of Ikea’s summer line and may no longer be available, but next spring I’m planning on checking them out for some other ways to light up my life
