Summer Garden Party

Hi everyone! Yesterday my sister had a party for her 18th birthday. As it was reasonably good weather, we were able to extend the party outside. I never get to do this as my birthday is in November and it's almost always rainy! I wanted to share a few pictures of the party and the decorations.

I've always wanted to give these a go and a garden party was the perfect excuse! Actually, they were incredibly easy to make and looked so effective. I've hung them up inside now so I can look at them all the time.

This lantern is usually in the kitchen but for the party I wrapped some battery powered fairy lights around the candle so when it got dark, the inside of the lantern was all twinkly and lit up the garden.

I love these lights and I've taken them for myself now. They looked lovely around the fence and our olive tree. They are also battery powered and last a long time. They look so much more expensive than they actually are and I'll definitely be going back to buy some more.

I actually put some flickering tea lights inside these lanterns but I could have also used the solar powered pack which came with the ceramic light. It can also be changed to a coloured light but with the weather we've been having this week, I thought it was better to rely on the tea light!
