In The Night Garden

Like any space in your home, you want your garden to feel warm and welcoming. As Autumn is slowly creeping up on us, people are making the most of Summer by eating outdoors. Eating Al Fresco is my favourite thing to do, especially when the sun is going down and there is a slight chill in the air.
I tend to grab a few blankets, a hot drink and light a few candles to create that warm feeling. Lanterns dotted throughout your garden add some interest aesthetically during the day and serve a great purpose of light in the evening. That cosy glow will fill you with warmth and banish any chills that make you want to run indoors.

Reusing jam jars to create your own lanterns is a cheap alternative to shop bought ones. They have the same warm effect and are perfect on a table for social gatherings.

If you want the ultimate warmth you could always purchase a Chiminea or Fire pit for your garden. They are perfect to huddle around and can be used throughout the year!
