My top picks in outdoor lanterns, including whimsical, Moroccan, classic and more!
Staying within last week’s outdoor theme, I’m sharing a few lantern options I came across while we were enjoying a Sunday afternoon out and about, in addition to a handful I’ve stumbled upon online. As mentioned, we have the foundational pieces in place for entertaining in our back yard, but we definitely need to add some new garden decor to ramp up the beauty and function. Although we installed lighting to our deck a couple years ago for safety reasons, as well as ambiance, I still find our yard feels too dark at night. Outdoor lanterns are probably the easiest and most cost effective solution. Are you with me?

Classic outdoor lanterns that are able to hold large pillar candles are probably my favourite. A good option is replacing a burning candle with a battery operated one that won’t drip or possibly overheat and shatter the glass.
If you’re looking for outdoor lanterns that are on trend right now, consider something with a cut out or lace pattern. I love the pattern they cast when they’re lit!
Solar lighting has drastically improved in aesthetics and quality over the past few years, and is definitely a low maintenance and safe option for lighting your outdoor space. Easy peasy too!
And, finally, if you want to add whimsy or need a pop of colour in your outdoor space, consider these fun lanterns. Great for a party!
Later this week, I’ll be showing you different ways to use lanterns in your outdoor space. For our yard, you’ll have to wait until May’s Outdoor Extravaganza series to see what style of lantern I choose and where I end up using it.
What is your favourite style of outdoor lantern? Seen any fantastic options in your travels?
Enjoy the sun!
