Outdoor Living This Summer

Written by: Anna McGurk

The sun is shining and this weekend we’re all about making the most of our outdoor space, however big or small. Whether it’s a last minute BBQ or an alfresco dinner party, here’s our top tips for outdoor entertaining and creating that perfect setting with garden lights.

Go Alfresco

Once the sun goes down, summer evenings are all about getting cosy outdoors and garden lanterns set the atmosphere perfectly. With different styles and sizes, they can work as table centrepieces for dinning areas or lining walkways in your outdoor space, making for a cosy area as the sun goes down. Whilst the days are hot, the evenings can get a little cooler, make sure to have some blankets to hand or light a fire pit for the ultimate outdoor space!

Make use of foliage

Whether you have a cosy courtyard or a big outdoor space, create an idyllic atmosphere for an evening outdoors. Start by making use of hedges, shrubs & fences with fairy lights and net lights to outline the edge of your space. Simply secure the lights up high and blend within foliage for a magical twinkle come evening.

Festoons up high!

No matter the weather, festoon lights will always be the ultimate garden lights! Creating both a party atmosphere and an evening glow they can stay up all season long. With options of plug in, battery and solar, choose the lights that work best for your space.
