I like to find ways to make the garden a nice space for my husband and me too, and it's my plan to eventually have a seating area for us with nice comfy chairs and tables.
But there are little things we can do to the garden in the meantime to create a "homely" relaxed atmosphere, perfect for sunny Summer evenings.
Aldi are a great place to shop for items like this. With a variety of items available in store as part of their Specialbuys range it's definitely worth a visit if you are on the look out. But, be quick, because once they are gone they are gone!
We were sent this outdoor lantern which has beautiful details on the windows/door and around the top. The door and windows are made from glass, rather than being open or being a tough plastic. This gives a real classy, expensive and almost vintage look to the lantern.
I really like the distressed paint look to the white version of the lantern, which is also available in black.
My husband hung the lantern from a branch on our willow tree and it looks so pretty hanging there, almost like a bird cage. I could just imagine the tree with a few of these dotted around sparkling when they have a candle inside. This really will create a homely feel to our garden and will be a nice addition when we make this part of the garden an adult space.
The outdoor lantern costs just £7.99 and is available from Aldi stores from Thursday the 19th of June.
I was sent the outdoor lantern for the purpose of this review.
