Outdoor lighting can make or break a successful outdoor dinner party. Too bright and your guests will feel like they’re eating at the neighborhood Subway. Too dark and they’ll be struggling to make eye contact and appreciate the dishes you carefully prepared.
Here are some outdoor lights for your space that will help set the mood and keep the party going well past sunset.
These bracket torches are perfect for the porch or deck. The brackets clamp safely and securely to handrails or the edge of a table and help create a candlelit atmosphere in hard to light places.
A patio umbrella is a must have for parties that start early–you don’t want anyone getting sunburned, after all. But turn on the tiny lights once the sun sets and you’ll create a dreamy atmosphere. Perfect for an intimate dinner for two. Better yet, the lights are weather resistant and do not attract most insects.
Rooftop gardens come alive with these Florentine Torches that glide easily into the ground or into potted plants. They’re powder-coated for year round weather resistance and can be used indoors and outdoors.
Candles bring warmth to any setting but there’s always the risk of them tipping (and becoming a fire hazard) or blowing out in the wind. Which is why we love these hurricane lanterns, which are made of copper finish with brass accents and are inspired by the traditional craftsman lanterns of days past.
