Perimeter Lighting

Perimeter Cafe Lighting for our tents is the most basic lighting we do.  It gives a nice ambient light and is sufficient on tents for customers who are looking for a simple, effective option.  Our cafe light strings are white to blend in with the tent fabric.  The bulbs are about the size of golf balls.  $1.25/ft includes install, hook up, and extension cords up to 100 feet.

Full Cafe String Light Packages

Our most popular enhancement to our standard perimeter cafe lighting is our full cafe light packages.  These packages include perimeter, corner to peak, and several more runs of light strings up into the peak or ridge line of the tent.  We can do this style lighting in any size or style of tent.  The Full Cafe Packages give an extremely elegant, professional look to the inside of your tent.  It is both functional and aesthetic. Pricing is dependent on the size and style of your tent but it includes all items mentioned above (perimeter, corner-to-peak, lacelines or bracelines), install, electrical hook up, and extension cords.
