Spring is in full swing, and what better way to entertain guests than hosting a relaxing gathering in your backyard. Lighting plays a key role in creating a comfortable and inviting atmosphere for friends and family. There are many options when it comes to lighting your outdoor space to get the mood just right. From a simple display of kerosene lamps to modern wall sconces, beautifully illuminate your outdoor space on any budget.
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Table lamps: Consider adding rustic lanterns or kerosene lamps on your outdoor tables. They provide the same shimmering glow as candles, but won’t blow out.
Path Lights: Positioning path lights along walkways and steps helps guests to safely and securely move about, while highlighting key architecture and plants in your backyard.
String Lights: Holiday lights are a great way to add a little extra sparkle and shine to your evening shindig. And it’s an easy touch you can do the day of!
Industrial-inspired sconces: Contrast stone and rustic elements with sconces with metal shades for an unexpected, intriguing industrial influence.
Tiki torches: Light up your backyard with classic tiki torches – which can be great for keeping bugs away, too.
Modern tube lights: Position tube lights above a deck to provide mood lighting for areas ideal for entertaining.
