unique outdoor lighting

When designing a functional outdoor space for evening entertaining, lighting is a key component. Lighting not only is functional, but can set the perfect mood for your alfresco gatherings. If you don’t have the right electrical connections, getting creative is the solution. 

Make or purchase a large grapevine or twig wreath and wrap outdoor string lights to it. Use wire to hang from an overhanging tree branch or pergola. This way you can plug it into an outlet that is nearby. This creates a whimsical chandelier for your table!  

A secluded area of your patio is the perfect spot for a candle-lit lighting fixture. You could even use battery powered candles for this option. Scatter a few votive candles on the table to add more ambiance.


Lanterns hung with pretty decorative iron brackets are a great idea for a wall adjacent to your table or seating area.

Moroccan glass lanterns come in the most gorgeous jewel tones and can really add romance and character to any style of d├ęcor.
