From tree lanterns to solar fairy lights, we have all the top garden lighting ideas to transform your outdoor space.
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 seven 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 a beautiful twinkle tree lamp or two. Perfect for adding depth and drama to your outdoor setting, a twinkling tree lamp hanging 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 - Hanging Centrepiece Lighting
There is nothing that we love more than warm summer evenings spent outside enjoying good food and wine with our friends and family. So make the most of these magical moments with beautiful garden lighting and a tablescape filled with foliage, lanterns and candles. It will not only delight your guests but create memories that you'll treasure forever. You can create your own hanging centrepiece with the Extendable Up & Over Table Clamp £38 and accessorise with solar light chains and hanging lanterns. Alternatively, use the Black Table Clamp £50, it comes equipped with a string of timeless solar-powered festoon lights that reminds us of the magic of eating alfresco on the cobbled streets of an Italian town.
#3 Garden Lighting Idea -Alfresco table lighting

Firstly, start at the centre of your garden table and build 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 eye-catching display. What's more, if you really want to create the outdoor 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.
