I helped a good friend decorate her yard for a fall get together. One of the things I did was to put votive candles in quart jars (with a few 'beans' in the bottom) wired the tops for hanging...o and added a quilter's touch by adding a few large buttons for decorations at the neck of the jar and hung from the trees....It looked like a fairy land.. almost two dozen. They were scattered and hung at various heights. A fun thing to do that has a big impact after dark! Wanted to share this with you try it next time you're having outdoor party near dark!

They have centronella voltive and tea candles which will help with skeeters.

My favorite lighting for outside. I use sand in the bottom and dampen it with water after putting the candle in. I outline my pool for our Christmas party with alternating red and white candles in the jars..so festive.
