    I did a search for this and few things popped up, but not whole lot.

    I'm getting married at a private villa, so we have the pool all to ourselves. I'm looking for some ideas for decorations in and around the pool area for an evening/night time reception. I really need pictures because I'm definitely a visual person. TIA.

      We usually float lanterns, although we've been known to float birdcages with candles in them . You can either go to my gallery or I have a set of photos available on flickr. Flickr: Mishka Designs' Photostream

      Any questions, lemme know!

        Oh I had posted a pic LONG time ago that was featured on Martha's website. It was so pretty. I would search for it, but I don't have time. I have meeting to go to in like 2 mins! It describes how to make a tower of chinese lanterns. It was so pretty!

          I think this is a terrible pic but I'll still post it anyway. I'm sure you have seen all the floating votives in the pool already, or tiki torches by the pool but here is a different one:

          It has overhead hanging lights as well as votives in the pool.

              Also here is a link to a beautiful villa in Mykonos:

              Villa Hurmuses ≈ Mykonos ≈ Exterior

              You can look at the pool area to get some idea. I think if you do floating votives in the pool or just candles all around the pool it will be elegant and beautiful. Or if you are a huge fan of lots of flowers you could do those floating flowers inside the pool.

                  I love it too Glenda and I think it would be really cheap to recreate. That's just white beach balls floating in the pool. It can't be too costly. And we know Chinese lanterns are pretty inexpensive too.

                  I wish I had a pool.

                      The lanterns and balls are a great idea - what's going to be costly, however, is the lighting structure. I doubt your villa has something like that which means that someone has to make it. Of course, your destination might be different than here in Mexico where we can't find a majority of the things and have to make, which might make it more cost effective. :)
