Hi all. First time posting here. I've a learned a lot just reading and gotten a ton of inspiration for my home space from all of your great work so thanks for that.

I'm currently looking for small accent lights to put underneath a glass topped bar and on shelves to highlight mugs and small Tikis. My electricity is limited because it's an outdoor space so I'm trying to find small battery operated accent lights. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for this...

Thanks!

During Christmas Target had several different designs of battery operated LED lights. I bought some strands and have been happy with them. The battery packs are easy to hide.
This is what they look like. They're easy to find online.

Thanks Lori. Those look like a good option for the bar.

I just found these and am thinking I may try them on top of the shelves to highlight my mugs:

They work pretty well...
