Only candles are too boring for you and you are still looking for the right lighting for your garden party? With these 5 tips, you will not only make the garden shine, but also the eyes of your guests.
In a survey 71 percent said that they like to go to a garden party and also like to equip one. Had I been asked, I would have lifted my finger. Barbecues, Maibowle drinking, sitting with friends and all under the open sky, I can imagine almost nothing nicer.
Even if spontaneous fetuses are not always the worst, a perfect garden party has to be well organized. Who cares about the food, which drinks have to be ranged, there is enough seating and above all, which lamps or lights are suitable for the garden, so that the party does not sit sometime in the dark?
Basic thoughts on lighting design
Basically, you can probably assume that the lighting for a garden party should be rather indirect. That is, bright light is not needed. Instead, the homely and holiday-like light character is desired. A warm beam of light that makes it possible to recognize all those present without destroying the Mediterranean touch. All in all, no answer can be given, because the right light depends on your local conditions. This also applies to your paths and any pond lighting.
Safety goes without saying at these places. On this page you will find more about outdoor lighting. For example, tips on putting your façade in the right light or the entrance to the house energizethat the keyhole is easily found even in the middle of the night.
The lighting for the garden party is certainly set other priorities, but the safety aspect must not be ignored.
1. torches for the garden party - not without danger
Torches are the best lighting for those who love open fire and love Indian romance. Depending on the material, they light up for about one to two hours. Even if you are outdoors, you should think about whether torches are the right thing for your garden party before you buy.
- How can the torch be fixed in the ground?
- Is the distance to people big enough (not dangerous)?
- Are children present at the party?
- Is extinguishing material available in an emergency?
The joy of torches should not be clouded here, but safety happens. Torches for the garden are available in different versions, such as wood, wax or filled with oil variant.
2. Lanterns for the garden - Warm light behind glass
Lanterns are part of every garden party for me and there is a reason for that. On the one hand I love the rustic character of the individual models, on the other hand they are not so sensitive to the weather. If it starts to rain, the lantern does not need to be brought to safety immediately. The all-round protection, which is ensured by glass walls, burns the candle inside even with a few raindrops on. The same applies if it gets a bit windier. You do not have to worry about nearby objects inflaming instantly. Constant rain or stronger wind does not last the lantern!
3. The classics - fairy lights and lanterns
When it comes to creating party mood, fairy lights and lanterns are the perfect garden lighting par excellence. Unlike in the Christmas season, where most households prefer warm milk glass, it may be quieter in the garden.

➤ Garland with finca charm
A string of lights with the bulbs in bulb shape is my personal favorite. In the southern part of the world you will find this kind of lighting on almost every restaurant terrace. However, in order for the summery colored light chain to become the eye-catcher in your garden, a power connection must be available. In addition, the garden lighting must not disturb the neighbors, you should think of that in advance.
➤ Lanterns - the summery lightness
It's a feast for the eyes when hundreds of little tots pass through the streets every year on St. Martin's Day with their lanterns. But to set some light accents at your garden party, your guests do not have to come with a lantern in their hand, although that would be a nice idea. Lantern chains with internal candle holders are not so suitable for a garden party.The danger that the paper bodies ignite, is much too big. Better are LED lanterns or the variant with solar. The latter is of course perfect for those who have no or only insufficient electricity in the garden.
