Outdoor lanterns create warmth and a gentle romantic glow in your garden or patio.

There’s nothing more beautiful than the gentle warmth and glow from a natural flame. Outdoor lanterns come in a wonderful range of shapes, sizes and styles, to suit any exterior decor, and they can be used in a variety of outdoor spaces, including the garden, deck or patio. You can create an enticing outdoor ambience for entertaining friends and family, or just for relaxing in the garden or on the patio on a clear summer’s evening. You can also use outdoor lanterns to add subtle highlights to landscaping features, or create a magical sparkling effect across the garden at night.

Varieties of outdoor lanterns.

There are outdoor lanterns which are designed to be mounted on top of a post, attached to a wall, placed around the garden, or placed on top of the patio table. Lanterns work with a variety of fuel sources, including citronella oil, kerosene, propane or a simple wax candle. Most products are very easy to refill, and burn for several hours, so you won’t need to refill them during the course of the evening. There are also outdoor lanterns which are powered by a low voltage electrical system.

Candle lanterns are a very popular way to illuminate an outdoor living or entertaining area such as a patio, deck or garden. They’re very safe, burn cleanly for up to nine hours, stay alight even when it’s windy, and provide warmth as well as light. The great advantage of having a few candle lanterns handy is that they can be used as emergency light sources if you have a power outage.

Tea lanterns are delightful and elegant garden design features in themselves. They can be cast from stainless steel in a variety of finishes, or natural copper, solid brass or bronze. A small candle inside radiates light through an elegantly designed grill, to accentuate features of the garden and create a lovely, delicate glow.
