Festive Holiday Lighting Ideas for Garden and Terrace

Twinkle, twinkle all the way – discover festive lights for your garden, terrace, or balcony to give the outdoor space of your home a sparkling holiday glow.


The winter festive season is upon us, so it’s the right time to think about the beautiful holiday decorations, and that includes the outdoor lighting. Whether you wish to create a charming winter woodland in your garden, a sweet holiday nest on your terrace or balcony, or simply a warm inviting atmosphere at your front door, brings you a few festive Christmas lighting ideas for the outdoor space of your home


Garden center from the UK, Dobbies, suggests how to create a dazzling display of your home this December and add sparkle to your garden, terrace, and balcony – with bold holiday decorations for maximum effect. Start by adding a few different lanterns to create an eclectic outdoor space, for instance, antique gold iron lantern and iron brass lantern. Decorate trees with warm white string lights. Warm up your outdoor seating furniture with decorative cushions and blankets.

Lighting Decorations for a Festive Holiday Party or Christmas Dinner

If you are hosting a festive holiday party or Christmas dinner for your friends and family, create a stylish atmosphere that makes an impact both indoors and outdoors. Place LED wooden stars to decorate the windows on the outside, and the festive star theme can continue inside with indoor hanging LED paper stars.

Sometimes the simplest decorating ideas are the best. For a light display that looks like the winter night sky, spatter fairy lights across the garden. From hanging icicle lights, warm white lights, and multi-colored LED lights, twinkling lights add holiday sparkle to the garden or front yard. Wrap lights around garden trees, add lovely star power to your hanging wreath, or illuminate your doorway arch – all with a simple string of lights.

Rebecca Stanton, Dobbies’ stylist, shared these top design tips on how to style up your festive outdoor areas:

“At Christmas, place as many lights as you wish – go big! Keep your lights all the same color and tone to keep the sophisticated look.”

“Remember your lights are not just to be admired from the outside, but they are also for you to enjoy from the comfort of your couch. Bear that in mind when you are positioning them and make sure you get the best view from both angles.”

“Place lighting to welcome your guests. If you are hosting at Christmas you can use lights to create a really welcoming doorway. You can line your pathway with something simple like candy cane stakes or simply drape your entranceway with twinkling lights for a welcome to remember.”

“Have a bit of fun with your outdoor lights. Add statement light characters or outline trees with something with the aww factor, like these cute little Reindeer string lights. This is the season to be jolly after all!”
