Twinkle Lights Seven Ways

I remember the pre-Pinterest years, when you had to rely on magazines, a few stray blogs, personal travel, and your own general inspiration to create. After seeing the movie Big Fish, I rented it again to pause it + photograph the actual tv screen with (likely) some old point-and-shoot. Pictures in hand, I presented my monofilament string light concept to my friend Todd, and away we went . . . and I remember thinking ‘how innovative are we??’ Fast forward just a few years, and well- it makes for a bless-your-heart-how-charming story? I will always love an al fresco affair with the tiniest of twinkle lights- and here are 7 fun ways to shake it up.
