A garden table and chairs set for a meal with string lights in a tree behind
Luminescent and twinkly, outdoor string lights are mesmerising! Whether they’re used for a Christmas get-together or a birthday party, string lights can totally transform your outdoor space. But why only use them on special occasions?

Outdoor entertaining

Semi-permanent fixed party lights installed over your patio allow you to enjoy alfresco entertaining any time with ease. No need to hang up and pack down, this is a great option if you’re into low-fuss entertaining.

Create the perfect backdrop

If you don’t have a patio or outdoor entertainment area, fairy lights can also be used in your backyard. Draped lights cascading from tree branches will instantly create lit outdoor ambience. If you have a small backyard or courtyard you could even hang these on your fence. Choose from low voltage or the socket-free convenience of solar powered lights.

Looking for more

If you're wanting to add more to your outdoors you could even grab your string lights and place them in your favourite glass jar for the perfect table piece.
