Think about how you light your home in the evenings. As night falls, generally speaking, you’ll instinctively dim down your lights. It’s all part of the wind-down process.
Your garden is no different. In the day, the sun will do all the bright activity for you, but when dusk falls and the light becomes more soothing, you’ll want to play on that feeling for the rest of the evening.
Candles are a definite. Just because they’re easy and obvious, doesn’t mean they should be discounted. Quite the opposite. Sit them in glass hurricane lanterns and dot them around your garden – from corners of decking or paved areas to in-between shrubs – or on your garden table. Clusters of pillar candles on plates are a lovely touch for the table too. And mix up heights with candlesticks and tealights as well.
Candles aren’t your only option though. A cordless lamp like our Hanover can offer you a little more light for reading or dining by, but as it’s dimmable, is just as atmospheric.
