LED Strip Lights

Because Strip Lights are so flexible you could use them to highlight certain areas or you could fit them in to a heart shape. The best way to do this would be to get a heart shaped cut out of cardboard and use the strip light to follow it round.

Cardboard heart 


You could use a piece of cardboard with a heart shape cut out in the middle, place it on the end of a torch and when you shine it, it will project a heart shape in your chosen direction.

Fairy Lights

Fairy Lights are probably the best choice as there are more options and are a lot easier to use for decor. Fairy Lights could be used as a centre piece by putting them inside an empty Champagne bottle or putting them within a selection of flowers. You could also use them to highlight a photo frame, make a heart shape, use them on the ceiling to mimic stars or draped across curtains.

The LIFX light bulb is a great choice as you can easily change colours, shade and brightness. You could change to colour to pink or red and have it as bright or as subtle as you’d like.


Outdoor Lighting

Fairy Lights and Strip Lights can both be used outdoors. They can add some romantic light to your garden path, an archway or draped around a tree.
