light up your garden

Garden Design, Home Styling, Inspiration

Summer is in full swing meaning most of us are spending lots of time in our gardens.

I don’t know about you but one of my favourite things about summer is being able to sit in the garden late into the evening. It can be so relaxing, particularly with nice lighting.

Candles are a lovely warm and subtle way to light the garden in the evening and create interesting shapes and shadows in the plants, too.

Candle holders do not necessarily need to be extravagant and expensive. Sometimes the most simple are the most effective. Candle holders can be made from many food storage items, meaning they are free(!), such as tin cans and glass jars. The advantage of this is that you can decorate them as you wish.
