We thought it would be a great idea to add a few more lighting elements this month. Usually, we scatter battery-powered tea lights here and there and switch on battery-powered metal lanterns if we’re having people over or even just cooking for the two of us. However, trying out some new options for lighting has turned out to be a real game-changer. With very little effort, we drove stainless steel Blomus garden stake tealight holders into the grass beside the stepping stones in our backyard, and they illuminated the scene beautifully and added extra dimension to what once was a blank, dark area. Assembly was easy, with just two sections of rods to attach and glass candleholders to place on top. Lighting the small candles included with the stakes (or using realistic-looking battery-powered ones) completes the look.
