5. Tiki Torches - For a luau extraordinaire with Polynesian fare create the right atmosphere by placing a few large torches around. If you have a pool or pond area these torches can create a fiery reflective ring leaving your guests mesmerized. And, outdoor torches are right at home in tropical gardens.

6. Rope Lights - Rope lights are literally "ropes of light" that are made from flexible, rolls of clear plastic. Lengths vary, but the main advantage to this type of lighting is that you can use it decoratively and to provide safety and delineate pathways, awnings and outdoor stairs.

7. Low Voltage Outdoor Lighting - With an emphasis on energy conservation, low voltage lighting systems will save you money by lowering your electric bills. The low voltage system reduces the 120-volt current of a normal electrical line to a harmless and more economical 12-volt current.
