Today there are so many ways to make your garden or backyard sparkle after dark.

Some are based on long tradition; paper Japanese lanterns still enchant, as do luminarias made from paper bags.

Other ornamental garden lights are new interpretations of old designs.

Subtlety is a virtue so use low wattage bulbs.

Or use no wattage whatsoever!

The challenge is to light up the darkness, with all it's magic & mystery,

not to create the light of day.
Which one is your favorite?

I love the little terra cotta pots in the first image and one of my favorites and one that hast lit the way of many of my parties are the luminaries made from paper bags! The chandy in the tree is very festive, like that a lot and the little glass votives hanging from the vine. Great ideas Lisa! I need to save these in the file for the Fall!
