Long Summer evenings spent outdoors enjoying good food and the company of your friends and family is the very definition of living the good life. So, what better way to make the most of these special moments than to transform your garden, patio, veranda or outdoor space into a magical and stylish spot that you'll love spending time in?! Of course, you've probably heard us say it before but good lighting is absolutely essential to creating a home that you love and this applies to your outdoor space too. As such, we've rounded up our top garden lighting ideas to help you create an outdoor space that you love.
#1 Garden Lighting Idea - Hang Lanterns from trees
If want to create a magical garden that comes to life at night then we highly recommend getting your hands on some beautiful tree lanterns. Perfect for adding depth and drama to your garden setting, hanging lanterns from your tree will cast your outdoor space in a beautiful warming light perfect for alfresco dinner parties. As seen above, our Grey Rattan Solar Lantern comes with a rechargeable battery and admits a white LED light that flows through the rattan weaving casting the most amazing shadows over your gardens. Alternatively, you could also display this beautiful garden light on your outdoor table or use it as a floor light for your patios or balconies.
#2 Garden Lighting Idea -Alfresco table lighting
Host intimate dinner parties in your garden with the help of beautiful candlelights, outdoor lanterns and solar fairy lights. Firstly, start at the centre of your garden table and building your lighting up from the centre outwards. We recommend opting for something large such as a lantern and then positioning lots of candlesticks and candles around the lantern to create an eyecatching display. What's more, if you really want to create the w0w-factor then consider hanging lanterns or fairy lights above your garden table. Additionally, this is also a useful idea if you're short on table space and need to leave the table clear from decorations for food and wine.
#3 Garden Lighting Idea - Floor Stake Lights
From your garden footpaths to your terrace or patio areas, stake lights such as our Set Of 2 Antique Brass Solar Stake Lights will not only admit a beautiful light but are also incredibly practical solutions for lighting your garden.
#4 Garden Lighting Idea - Fairy Lights
Co-founder of Rockett St George, Lucy St George, loves a fairy light! From her home to the garden, she loves the glittering sparkle that fairy lights emit all year round! As such, Lucy and Jane (Rockett St George Co-Founders), searched high and low to find fairy lights that we could use outdoors. So, of course, we were thrilled when we sourced the beautiful Multifunction Solar Fairy Lights. Adding sparkle and magic to your garden, wrap the fairy lights around trees and branches or snake the lights down the centre of your dining table. You could even hang them in a zig-zag pattern from one side of your garden to another for an ultra magical effect at nighttime.
