What’s not to love about summer? The days become longer, the sun shines throughout the day, everyone is happier and loves to get out into their gardens for BBQ’s, drinks on the decking or even to gather friends to a summer party. But when the day turns into night, that doesn’t mean your garden has to go into the darkness. Make your garden sparkle during the night time with these lovely additions:
- The lantern lover
Introduce a little ambience and a touch of Moroccan-inspired lighting to your garden or patio with a couple of Agadir Garden Solar Lanterns (RRP £22.99 each). Whether you’re using them to be the centre piece on an outdoor table, around the patio or amongst the flowers and foliage in your garden, they will make anywhere beautifully stand out.
- The fun factor
Nothing says summer like a tropical pineapple! Add some fun to your summer party with some Pineapple String Lights. Hang them on top of garden sheds and gazebos to create a totally tropical vibe. These playful pineapples are from M&S for £15 – sweet!
- The style seeker
For the minimalist who wants to create a stylish, simple but effective ambience in the garden. This set of two Crackle Glass Colour Changing Solar Stake Lights (RRP £16.99) can be placed anywhere amongst your garden and will light it up even during the darkest nights.
- The tech savvy
The Luci Solar String Lights (RRP £38) are the perfect accessory for adding a bit of sparkle to your outdoor space. At 18 foot long, this string of ten white lights will brighten up any garden or patio. What’s more, they are splash proof and will fully charge given 12 hours of sunshine on its solar panel. If that’s not an option, just charge them with its USB port.
- The Hawaiian vibe
Give a nod to the Polynesian style and line your lawn, pathways and flowerbeds with a couple of tiki torches. Create a Hawaiian and a tropical island ambience with these tiki torches (RRP £12.99) that give off a gentle amber glow. At 82cm tall, these have been made with 100% bamboo and you can expect up to six hours of shine from a full day’s charge.
