With warmer weather in full effect, there’s no better time to host a little outdoor soirée of your own. If you’re a Miami dweller like myself, you’ll know that the price we pay for a tropical climate all year round are sporadic rainstorms that often push outdoor festivities indoors – making the right portable lighting (and a flexible mindset) necessities for spring and summer entertaining. Whether you’re forced to move your gathering inside on account of rain, or just want to party past sundown, you can count on these 10 design-driven portable lights to set the mood in style – outdoors and in.
