The weather has been lovely this week so I've been spending a lot more time in the garden. We have a deck/patio at the end of our garden that over looks the fields - its beautiful. However, when it gets dark you literally cannot see a thing! This has got me thinking about exterior lighting and garden lighting. There is so much scope for what you can create in your garden with just a few lights here and there.
Pathway lights are probably the most obvious form of lighting your garden. They are very practical as they literally 'light the way'. These can sometimes be a bit boring though, but dotting little ball lights like these are a sweet way to creating a lighting pathway through your garden.
These were always my favourite lights as a child! I loved the fact that they we're so dainty and beautiful in almost every setting. A great idea to show off the fabulous elements of your garden is to cover them in fairy lights. This creates a focal point and highlights the beauty of mother nature even in the dark - that these trees for example, magical.
There is a big craze for jam jars at the moment and turning them into lights is a great way to embrace the trend without going too mad! You can hang them from your trees or even the roof of the house to create a lovely lighting feature. You can also get solar powered lights to no need for an extension cord - perfect!
Bold is sometimes best - in this case, it defiantly is! Bringing a chandler outside is the perfect way to create a dramatic setting for dinner parties and special occasions. Bringing the glamour outside makes your garden feel more majestic too.
