Umbrella Glows for 8 Hours

This solar powered patio umbrella from Hammacher Schlemmer isn't just eco-friendly, it's also the perfect solution to eliminating unsightly cables that would otherwise be displayed on your outdoor table.

A solar panel on top of the umbrella absorbs the suns rays during the day. At night, the 24 LEDs underneath the canopy glow, providing light for up to eight hours.

For those who can't afford the $250 piece of eco-luxury, candles make a romantic alternative to summer nights on the balcony... just watch out for weather; a little bit of wind will leave you and your beau in the dark. Then again, maybe that's what you wanted to begin with!
