Summer has finally arrived, and we’ve well and truly got wisteria hysteria here at Festive Lights HQ!
The beautiful wisteria flower makes for a glorious garden addition thanks to its bright and colourful petals that cascade down effortlessly from lush greenery and intertwining vines. Partnered with dazzling outdoor lighting that can set your garden aglow, wisteria solar lights are set to be the next big trend of summer 2023.
Throw a blossoming garden party
Now is the perfect time of year to gather your friends and family and make the most out of the warm weather. And no sizzling soiree is ever complete without the addition of beautiful, sparkling lighting to truly set the scene.
Big and bold Festoon bulbs look fantastic nestled within the budding blossoms of the wisteria flower and effortlessly enlighten your pergola or outdoor seating area within seconds. We worked with @HomeSweetBabe to create this glorious garden party setting amongst her bright purple wisteria flowers. We just love the contrast between the bright bulbs against the natural foliage to create this lighting masterpiece. But, if you’re looking for something a little more subtle, wire lights will add a soft yet romantic glow to your garden area too.
Fantasise about faux foliage
As stunning as a wisteria is, we appreciate that not everyone has the space or capability to house their own. But worry not, you can find faux wisteria garlands in most gardening shops and certainly online, so there’s bags of choice when it comes to creating an easy romantic setting.
The beauty of the wisteria isn’t just limited to the daytime either. Surround your wisteria garlands with beautiful, unique lanterns or twinkling solar fairy lights, sit back and relax after a long day chilling in the summer sun. We’ve opted for our favourite rattan solar lanterns to create the look that transports you to a Mediterranean beach shack.
Create a dazzling chandelier at home
Wisterias don’t just look stunning set within your outdoor garden space, they can also make for a fantastic addition to your home or even wedding décor.
These beautiful blooms add a touch of elegance that you didn’t know you were missing, and when paired with twinkling battery fairy lights or even curtain lights … well, they make something truly magical.
