Is it too soon to start planning your outdoor extravaganza? Never, if you ask us! Making the arrangements for a garden barbeque or cocktail soirée can take a lot of work and organisation, so don’t let unpredictable weather conditions make or break your plans. We all want to spend the sunny hours outdoors even when summer hasn’t quite yet arrived, so we’ve brought you home and garden decorating ideas to keep an unexpected chill or sudden downpour from ruining your hard work. We’ve got décor and fragrances that work outdoors and in, and some tips for making the most of your style all year round.

Keep it multi-purpose with lanterns. Lanterns can add structure and style to your garden, while also illuminating indoors for a cosy feel. Designed to enhance any space, our lanterns are best when paired with our tealight candles to add multiple points of light for a spectacular glow. Pop in a few tealights for a gorgeous piece of décor to impress your guests and create a gentle ambiance for when it gets darker. Check out our selection of lanterns for a portable way to dress your garden and home. And, PartyLite lanterns feature convenient handles for easy transportation in last-minute-change-of-plans scenarios.

Small décor pieces are also a great way of sprucing up your setting, whether that be indoors or outdoors. Votive and tealight holders are super mobile styling pieces that you can move from room to room, and yes we totally believe that your garden is another room of your home and should be treated like one! Discover trio and pair holders for effortless coordination that looks incredible every time. Lay out your favourite spread of holders on your patio table for an eclectic look that’s easy to move from one table to another.

When it comes to deciding which fragrance form is best for you, there’s plenty to choose from. Jar candles give the greatest fragrance throw so if you’re looking for a stronger, intense fragrance, browse our 3-Wick Jar Candles for quality scents encased in a beautifully designed jar. Or match your holders to the coloured wax of our Escential Jar Candles. Jar candles are ideal for outdoor use as the glass jars protect the flame from any stray gusts of wind. If gusts of wind are a regular problem for you, why not say no to flames altogether and opt for our flameless SmartScents Fragrance Sticks collection? These scented, rolled paper sticks offer hours of long-lasting fragrance without any fuss. Simply pop into a holder and let them fill your space with effortless fragrance.

And finally, explore our five fragrance families to discover your favourite scents of the season. Discover fruit, floral, exotic, gourmand and fresh fragrances that are great for garden and indoors alike. We love florals outdoors to complement the natural aromas of your garden, with beautiful and refined botanic notes for an extra boost of flora. In the evenings, satisfy your after-dinner sweet tooth with our selection of gourmand options in sweet, sugary rich fragrances. PartyLite fragrances are curated with world-renowned perfumers so you can be sure that you’re getting only the best for your home.

With so many options, you’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding on a setting for your summer festivities. For more home and garden decorating ideas, visit our blog pages today. Or to shop the latest seasonal scents and styling pieces, browse our online store.
