Sparkly, twinkly, luminescence – fairy lights are mesmerising.  

Traditionally, they’re used to bling up a party spaces especially in December, but these sparkly beauties are not just for Christmas. 

One of the most important things to keep in mind, when designing your event space, is the atmosphere you are trying to create. 

Using lighting to create a strong and enticing ambience is an age-old technique and fairy lights are one of the most versatile forms, giving you the flexibility to make any venue irresistible. 

Here we look at the versatile ways you can use these affordable and often underrated lights.

Creating a star-studded ceiling or canopy using strings of lights stretched from a centre point give a luxurious effect like these images above. Finished with coloured lighting it transforms this marquee into something other-worldly.  

A fairy light wrapped trellis, beam, post or even table legs can accent the most charming features of a venue. If you have a woodland or rural setting why not wrap a tree and highlight natures charm like these pictured below. 

Using a length of fairy lights to illuminate a path or walkway combines functionality with serene beauty, not to mention a romantic atmosphere. 

Essential Supplies fairy lights come in black or white so picking the right colour for your project can make the leads disappear leaving the lights the only stand out feature.
