An elegant outdoor dining spot sits under a tree with hanging paper lanterns. Raised flower beds with ornamental grasses border the bench seating, which is paired with brown wicker chairs to provide plenty of room when entertaining.
A lovely luminaria option for the outdoors is the Soji™ Stella Cylinder Lantern, in red, bronze, midnight blue and silver. The lanterns, from Allsop Home & Garden, can hang from trees, decks and porches or be placed on the ground or to decorate a tabletop.
String up lights and lanterns around your outdoor space to give an enchanting twinkle to any garden party. The soft glow will invite everyone to linger outside in the nighttime summer air.

It's important to think about lighting, especially once it gets dark. The warm glow of candles, string lights and lanterns creates a fun outdoor mood. Tea lights, and many battery-operated lighting options, are available at stores like Target and Home Depot. Hang lanterns from the tent ceiling using ribbons.
