Lovely Summer Lanterns

Create a warm and inviting outdoor space with summer lanterns in your garden. Backyard lighting is the perfect way to generate beauty in your backyard.  Lighting instantly establishes a mood to your outdoor environment and looks lovely.

It is during the summer months that we are able to relish spending longer hours outdoors enjoying our gardens.  After the sun sets, we often long to linger in the warm evening or night air.  This is where great summer lanterns come into play. Include summer lanterns in your backyard decor and the hours after dark will be just that more delightful for family and friends.

Simple paper lanterns make a wonderful impact. You can use different sizes, colors and even shapes for a more visually functional, yet decorative element to your garden. Clustering them together over a table gives the illusion of a “chandelier”.  Hanging them from a single tree or several trees is a brilliant way to utilize and incorporate nature in your yard and outdoor decor.
