Turn your Dining Table into a Glowing Wonderland

Whatever the season we love to have our festoon lights shining bright year round. The addition of textured blankets, candles, festoon lights, fairy lights and fire pits will enable us to carry on entertaining outdoors day or night. The decor of our autumn and winter spaces should be designed to be warm and welcoming, just like our indoor spaces. 

A string of inexpensive festoon lights can turn a garden, deck or patio into a veritable fairyland that will brighten anyone's day or evening view!

Although it seems easy enough to string some fairy lights or festoon light bulbs in a garden to give it an instant whimsical vibe, in reality, hanging string lights can be a little harder when you have very few hanging points.

Don’t worry because you can still hang little lights from above by using these 2 great finds! 

Over the Table Rod 

Create beautiful decor and functional lighting with an over the table rod. These rods are adjustable in size with clamps to position securely on either side of the table.

Wrap festoon lights or fairy lights around and secure with cable ties or garden string.

We love to hang our flush mount festoon lighting collection from these! Add some cosy seat blankets and a few extra rugs for some warm, snug vibes. Brick walls and sage green table cloths will add to the autumnal feels.

We love a black over the table rod with our G45 Milky Bulb Festoon Lights! Combine with a botanical theme and the green foliage will pop against the glow of a warm white bulb. Effortless decorating that allows you flexibility with your hanging design. No power? Go solar and you have the ultimate portable lighting installation.

Or use planter posts! 

Planter Posts

Get creative and turn some old wood barrels or pots into post holders for your festoon and string lights. Multi functional they will also look great for you plants and herb gardens. If wanting the lights above your dining table simply place a planter post on either side and drape you festoon and fairy lights from end to end. The more planter posts you add the more options you'll have with how many lights and hanging pattern. 

We have a blog with a step by step guide to create these - click here
