    A couple of caveats: if you use colored lights go for orange as the fifth color (after red, blue, gold, green) instead of purple, because the cooler tones tend to overwhelm the warm colors.  The blue & purple were just stronger and  together created a very blue overall effect.  Also, if you get the kind with diffuser caps, make sure they're securely attached-- if one comes off, the LED beam will project a bright circle onto your wall.

    That said, I gave those away last fall & got some LED holiday lights from Ace Hardware that are almost indistinguishable from conventional lights, which is nice.  I wish more outdoor decorations came in LEDs, and I'm not a fan of the cool-white standard.  Right now I'm looking for affordable solar path lights with warm-white LEDs, and while they're out there, the vast majority are the cool blue/white.
