Midsummer Nights Garden

Written by: Florence Oldridge

July has crept up on us super quick this year, don't you think? The days are brighter for longer and the sun is beaming through ‘til dusk. As golden hour hits, however you like to enjoy your outside space, we're here to help give your garden the evening glow we’ve all been waiting for! Let us share with you our top tips to style your garden for those midsummer nights. Simply follow our three simple steps and let’s get started...

One: Grounding Glow

Start from the bottom and work your way up! Adding an illumination at ground level often makes the space feel bigger thanks to the shadowing they create. With multiple lighting options available, tailor your choice based on the style of your space. On grass the use of stake lights are super popular, simply push into the soft ground lighting up the walkway, or to frame corner to corner the edge of your space. For harder surfaces such as patios and decking, outdoor lanterns can be used to create a casual, cosier glow. Portable to move with the sun and options to match your garden décor, our lanterns are super trendy and a practical source of light.

Two: Flaming Feeling

Create a cosy sanctuary in your garden by adding a flame or two, firepits are a great place to start! Trending in time for summer 2021, they are a must- have for entertaining outdoors this season and super handy for use on those cooler evenings. Whether your flame is real or artificial, the flicker naturally brings a relaxing ambience you and your guests are certain to enjoy. For a smaller yet super effective flame, try our LED candles. Cool to touch and designed with innovative technology to perfectly mimic that of a real flame, they are completely fuss free and safe around the kids too! Style paired with outdoor lanterns to complete the look.

Three: Over Head Lighting

Now your ground is lit and the flames are flickering there is only one thing left to do… illuminate over head! Festoon lights are a great place to start. Drape from window to wall, adding style to all garden decors. Their oversized bulbs catch the eye of your guests and bring light and life to your space. Utilise all walls, fences and trees to bring your garden to life by entwining with fairy lights, adding a little sparkle wherever they go.

Transform your outside space and cherish those midsummer evenings at home.
