@edickey79: I think battery powered chinese lanterns spread around the ground would look neat!  Or look up LED Throwies… you could make tons of them and spread them around…. as well as tiki torches.  Is there any way you can reach extension cords out and surround the area or some type of lattice with white Christmas lights?

I love the Tiki Torch idea! Another would be luminaries, i dont know how much light it would give off but paired with candles on the tables they would look lovely and romantic.

We used candelabras as centerpieces that were really beautiful.

String lights are also really beautiful and you can just put wooden posts in the ground if needed

You didn’t say if you have any access to electricity. If not, you can use battery operated or solar lights.

You can also rig something up so that you can hang lights. You can get patio umbrella bases, insert a tall pipe or pole, and string lights between them.

If you need to keep the bases out of the way, you can use a cantilevered umbrella stand

You can also stand a post of some sort upright in a barrel, fill it with rocks or sand and string lights form the top.


You can also get really tall shepherd’s hooks, or use shorter ones with battery operated lamps , mason jars or candle lamps hanging on them.
