Hire Fairy or Bistro Lights

Nothing Simply Sparkles quite like fairy lights. They’re like a pinch of pixie dust that makes any event magical. Hiring them means you can get more impact and better quality for your money.

Clients have used them to hang around giant chandeliers and teepees at weddings, or to make their church Christmas market or Diwali celebrations beautiful, as well as for sweet 16ths, 21sts, 80th birthdays and New Year’s bashes. They simply make everything festive and pretty! Contact us to discuss your needs and hire lights.

We include all necessary batteries or plug adaptors for your convenience and have a range of stands to make putting them up outdoors or inside a breeze. White or black extension cables and multiplugs, G-clamps for steel beams, as well as reusable S-hooks in wire or white plastic also available on request, at no extra charge, for larger orders.

We always say warm white is like firelight, while cool white is like starlight. Cool white is ideal if you have a blue-tone colour scheme, while warm white give that fire-fly effect. Both are super pretty, it just depends on what look you want!

Copper wire fairy lights

These are a great addition to table decor, can be wrapped around bobo balloons and compliment anything from a classic white wedding theme to a neon glow in the dark dance party.


We have 2 types of custom-made stands to support bistro or fairy lights strings at your venue.

Please note that very heavy installations, like bistro lights across longer distances, will require professional set up by us, and preferably some additional support like a large tree or veranda pole to balance them out. You will need a bakkie to collect yourselves (they are long and heavy), or will need to arrange delivery with us.

For flat ground (lawn, paving or a deck): wood poles set in concrete in galvanised steel buckets, which are heavy enough to stay put. We provide white marble pebbles to top up the buckets, adding weight and making them pretty. They are easy to decorate with additional ribbons, lights, flowers, chinese lanterns, bunting, etc. If you are expecting wind, or trying to cover a larger distance, you will need to secure some of them to a railing or similar.

For lawn/ flowerbeds: metal stakes (approx 3.5 m black, or 1.2m in white) with a pretty spiral top, which is easy to hook a fairy light string, lantern, flower basket, bunting or other decor into. Perfect for any outdoor function where you want the lights etc. well above guest’s heads, and the ground is potentially uneven.

HIRE PRICE: R30 each (tall) R15 each (short)
