I love the look of strung lights on a porch, patio, deck of al fresco eating area of a home or cafe. It evokes the feel of a summer night at a cozy coffeehouse and casts just enough light to create a festive mood. This set is far more substantial than those typically found at the local drugstore; they are high enough quality for use in a restaurant or venue space. If you are thinking of getting these for decorating for a wedding or outdoor party, don’t hesitate, they give a lovely glow and are high-quality.
This particular string of globe lights have a lovely warm white-golden light but not so yellow that they are an orangey-saffron glow. It is very much like candlelight, especially when used indoors or in enclosed spaces. Outdoors they give off a bit of a vintage-light look. They have a streamlined, clean metal look and evoke a trendy, industrial, hipster urban neighborhood restaurant kind of vibe. At twenty-five feet, they are perfect for stringing up for outdoor entertaining, or weddings, holidays, summer parties, or for stringing them on the porch for a bit of light at an entryway. They would also be pretty strung indoors along a full-length mirror in a bedroom; these are sturdy and attractive. They come with sturdy hooks on each bulb socket, so you don’t have to fiddle with plastic hanger type of hooks, and with individual hooks, you can get the exact look you want to the drape of your light string.
They are warm after being on for a while but so far they have not run hot on me. I also like the size of these bulbs – they are large enough to give a soft light to the surroundings and be noticeable, but they are not gimmicky in their shape or size.
This string has a nice thick wire and looks like an expensive set. They can be plugged together with other sets for a total of three strings, which gives you 75 total feet of globe bulbs, which is more than plenty for most design spaces.
They come packaged very well in a box with inner cardboard holding each bulb, although I could not figure out how to remove the internal packaging around each bulb, so I need to use some bubble wrap to carefully re-pack them since they are glass.
CONCLUSION: I love them! So happy to have these, they are a much nicer quality than any festive or fairy lights I have from drugstore stores. They blend in nicely with various decors and give off a lovely glow. Recommended!
