When setting up for a garden party you need to decide where the focus of the party is going to be, you can then zone this area using lighting to make a statement and set the scene.
Dress your outdoor pergola or patio with our lighting ideas
If you have a pergola, these are the perfect focal point for a party and are ideal for hanging lights overhead. You can use festoon lights, outdoor fairy lights, solar lanterns or outdoor hanging pendant lights and they will all help to create a warm inviting atmosphere.
A string of festoon garden lights is great for lighting a pergola: all of Sparkle's festoon lights are perfect for this and if you don't have power you can use our battery outdoor festoon lights.
If you really want to create the wow factor, intertwine a string of fairy lights into the pergola alongside the festoon lights and it will feel like you’re sitting out under a starry sky, no matter how cloudy it may be overhead.
If you want to go for more of a bright and playful look for your party, Sparkle’s Outdoor Solar Lanterns will bring the ultimate Boho vibe. These outdoor solar lights are available in various colours and shapes and work perfectly together to create an impact. They feature a delicate paper-like finish but are made using a unique tyvek lightweight and durable material so you don’t have to worry about them being ruined by the elements. We think the more the better with these solar lanterns as they look great together in sets.
Create a Statement with Outdoor Table Pendant Lights
If you are looking for a more modern look for your garden party, our Outdoor Pendant Lights will bring all the style and function of indoors outside. These metal mesh lights are a statement piece to hang from your pergola. They have a hook at the top and are battery operated.
All of these lights have hooks or handles that you can easily attach to a pergola but if you don’t have a pergola, you can still create a stunning area for your party…
