So the holidays are near and it seems like everyone is putting up their Christmas decorations in early November. Are you guys forgetting that we still have to celebrate Thanksgiving?! As some of you may know my boyfriend and I recently moved in together and this year we decided it would be great to bring the two families together for Thanksgiving Dinner. Well more like a feast since we are expecting a minimum of 15 people, so automatically I thought of an outdoor party in our backyard. I had the chance to bring my Pinterest board dream to life with string lights which are super easy to install with the use of Command™ Brand products from Walmart. Keep reading to find out how I put these backyard lights up with no screws or nails!

I have always wanted outdoor string lights in my own home because the Edison bulbs really add the perfect vintage touch to the yard. However I really did not want to deal with drilling holes for screws or hammering nails. Instead I opted for Command™ Outdoor Light Clips which is a damage-free way to string your lights around a door, up the siding, around a window, or along the gutter. This installation was perfect for my yard since I didn't have patio poles to hook the lights. The first step is to clean your surface with rubbing alcohol to make sure you have a smooth, clean and dry surface to work with. Next you are going to remove the blue liner and then press adhesive on the clear clip. Lastly, remove the black liner and press clip firmly to surface. Voila, an outdoor hook to hang lighting as easy as 1-2-3. You can space out the clips approximately two feet apart. And don't worry if you mess up, they are pretty easy to remove as well and leave no damage behind.

I hung the lights alongside the top of the door with the use of Command™ Outdoor Light Clips (which can also be used to organize and hide the extension cord) and then pulled the string lights high enough and wrapped around a tree on the other side of the yard. The dim glow of the string lights are the ideal mood lighting for parties, BBQs, weddings, or just everyday backyard get togethers. And what's convenient is that the Command™ Brand hooks provide easy transition throughout the holidays; so when December comes around and I change my mind to switch up the decor there is no fear of holes or damage.

Now doesn't the glow of the string lights just make my backyard look magical?

  6. I was just thinking it's too cold for backyard entertaining now that it's fall but I see you have palm trees in your backyard so you must live somewhere tropical. I love the cushions on your couch, they are so pretty! Lights make any backyard look amazing!

  9. I love entertaining, everything is done with kids now and fellow mums with their kids. I don't do much in the evenings though, so not much need for lights. But do love nice garden furniture.

  24. I adore strung lights in the back yard! They add so much beauty and remind me of stars. I see them a lot along the beach here in California but I want them for my little patio.

  25. It does seem like each holiday starts sooner and sooner. I went shopping for some Thanksgiving goodies from my nieces and nephew at Michaels and everything was already Christmas. I had to search the entire store to find what I wanted. I love how you decorated your outdoor space. The lights are amazing and I'm sure your families are going to enjoy celebrating Thanksgiving under them.

  31. This is such an inviting space! I love your ideas -- I have to say though that before the last hurricane -- you know, the one where Rick Scott proclaimed "You're all gonna die", my husband and I decided to remove a 12 x 24 foot awning on the back of the house to prevent it from being ripped to shreds by the storm. We also took down all of our lighting which had been strung around the perimeter. We have yet to put it back together.... so I'm coming to your house.
