This has to be the best time of the year doesn't it? When the sunshine is warm, our gardens are in bloom and everything just seems bright and cheery. Ok granted, we do have to wait a while for those moments and they may be few and far between in our 'English Summer', but when they come along we absolutely must catch them, and take full advantage of the joy that they can bring. Sitting in the garden after a busy day, once the kids are in bed, is one of life's simple pleasures, especially as the sun is going down and the light warrants some tender lighting ... a few pretty tealights to see you into the night. Tealights and votives come into their own in the summer don't they, because they truly do look better lit outside, rather than on a mantlepiece. And for summer garden parties they really are the pièce de résistance! And with so much choice of garden decorations now available our great tealight collection at lavender/room are all suitable for outdoor use. My favourites are our ceramic ones, with little tiny holes which give a wonderful glow in the dark. We also have a couple of styles which can be hung - on walls or in trees. Take a look here and choose something pretty that will help our Summer evenings feel a little bit more special.
