It’s those small twinkling lights which you can wrap around trees in your garden or hang above the terrace or on the patio. Want to know how they can turn these spaces into magical places?

Allow plants to grow on a wood trellis on your patio in order to get that charming cottage garden-style look. The vines will wrap around the trellis and you can use the same technique when adding fairy lights to the mix. This way it will all look natural.
Fairy lights look almost like a bunch of fireflies so what better way to highlight their beauty then with a green design? Transform the deck into a peaceful retreat and let plants climb on the fence and become one with it. Then the lights will really stand out.
Of course, there are other ways to use these lovely decorative lights. For example, a beach-style deck or patio could really use a magical touch and the fairy lights would fit right in the breezy and beautiful décor.
Wrap the lights around trees in your garden or in your front yard. They’ll look fabulous at night and they’ll light up the whole area around them. How marvelous would your property look then?
Fairy lights are of several types, some being tiny and great for decorating trees with and other a little more powerful. Use the second type if you wish to light up the terrace or backyard. Create a romantic dining spot and add a few candles for the mood.
Sometimes the subtle decorations and hints of beauty are the most mesmerizing. Use fairy lights as accent features for the garden or for the plants on your patio. You don’t need a lot of drama to create a magical atmosphere.
Let the lights hover over the patio or terrace and, at night, when the sky is dark, they’ll look like stars or fireflies. Only then you can appreciate the truly magical ambiance. A wonderful setting for late night romantic dinners or guest entertainment.
Fairy lights can become permanent fixtures for the patio or backyard or they can be temporary decorations, only used for parties, barbeques, romantic dinners and other occasions. Either way, they’re great to have around.
A lighted trellis can really look amazing in your garden. It’s a simple and fun way of creating a relaxing area in the middle of nature. The lights are not powerful enough to be disturbing, but subtle and beautiful, perfect for the project.
A pergola or a trellis-covered patio can become an extension of your home and serve as an outdoor dining area. To make it feel more inviting and intimate, use the right type of lighting. Fairy lights are perfect for the job and they’re easy to install.
There are tons o ways in which you can decorate with these lights but keep in mind that they’re meant to be simple so don’t overthink the décor. It’s best to go with a casual décor and to let them just be there without attracting too much attention.
Whether you have a modern or a traditional patio, a rustic deck or a tropical garden, fairy lights have the same enchanting effect o matter what. Love the pairing with the white dining chairs and tablecloth in this particular setting.
Make the backyard seem like an extension of your home. Use fairy lights to create a geometric pattern, like a transparent roof. You’ll instantly see the change of ambiance.
Take the magical atmosphere one step further. The lights are an important element but so is the furniture, the plants and the colors you use. Just look how lovely and charming this tiny patio feels.
