Inspiration: Birdcages and Battery Powered Candles

With the warm weather upon us, it's prime time to get our patio in shape for entertaining. We've recently been looking into ways to add light underneath our patio umbrella. We love the look of fairy lights, but don't have an outlet close enough and the thought of a long extension cord wasn't appealing. We also love the look of hanging lanterns and came across this fun idea in the Summer 2008 issue O at Home. They suggested putting up wooden birdcages and inserting battery powered candles. (We've used battery powered tealights indoors, but for some reason never thought to put them outside! duh!) Do you guys have any other mood lighting ideas for outdoor entertaining? They listed the birdcages from rose and radish, and the battery powered candles from Bed Bath and Beyond [ image via O at Home Summer 2008 ] Here are a few other additional links for outdoor lighting ideas:
