Earlier this week, I shared a round-up of some of my favorite outdoor lanterns I’ve come across so far this spring. With the outdoor entertaining season already starting for some and in the near future for the rest of us (fingers crossed), it’s always nice to add something new to the mix. Lanterns are one of my top choices for outdoor decorating, as they’re not only functional and beautiful, but they’re also one of the most versatile garden decor pieces you can find.
One of my favorite ways to decorate with lanterns is grouping various sizes of the same style together on a front porch, landing, or patio.
Hanging lanterns from trees, pergolas, or arbors are an effective way to draw the eye up and bring a bit of romance to an outdoor space.

I adore the look of hanging paper lanterns for parties. So pretty!
As an option, lanterns can be hung on the side of a shed or alongside a fence.
Or placed down the center of an outdoor dining table.
Of course, lanterns always look amazing nestled in as part of the landscape.
And lastly, taking any of these outdoor decorating ideas and combining them yields big impact for sure.
Are lanterns part of your outdoor decorating scheme? What’s your favorite way to use them?
Enjoy your day!
