Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. For a light display to envy the winter night sky, you can’t go wrong with a spattering of fairy lights across the garden. From hanging icicle lights, warm white lights and multi-coloured LED lights Dobbies has a selection of twinkling lights to make you the envy of your neighbourhood. Wrap lights around existing trees, add extra star power to your hanging wreath or illuminate your doorway arch all with a simple string of lights.
Rebecca Stanton, Dobbies’ stylist gave these top tips when it comes to styling up your festive outdoor spaces:
- At Christmas you can never have too many lights so don’t be scared to go big! Keep your lights all the same colour and tone to keep the sophisticated look.
- Remember your lights are not just to be admired from the outside but they are also for you to enjoy from the comfort of your couch. Bear that in mind when you are positioning them and make sure you get the best view from both angles.
- Use lighting to welcome your guests. If you are hosting at Christmas you can use lights to create a really welcoming doorway. You can line your pathway with something simple like Dobbies’ Candy Cane stakes or simply drape your entranceway with twinkling lights for a welcome to remember.
- Have a bit of fun with your outdoor lights. Add statement light characters or outline trees with something with the aww factor like these cute little Reindeer string lights. Tis the season to be jolly after all!
