Are city lights making it difficult to see stars in the sky? Make your own! Drape a string of lights or lanterns around the central area of your patio and create your own twinkling atmosphere.
You can also line the interior of an outdoor umbrella with a strand of lights to create a romantic outdoor dining experience.
