Entertaining outdoors is always on the agenda in summer. By adding a few extra twinkly touches, you can create a lovely ambience and magic for a night to remember.

I am sharing 4 elements that I used for the centerpiece to create an inviting ambience for this table recently. And the best part? It is so easy to recreate the look.

#1. Create an enchanted centerpiece with fairy lights

For this centerpiece, I used fairy light cloches, vintage copper pots, flowers, and a few candles tucked here and there.

For a bit more sparkle to the cloches on the table, I set them in vintage copper pans.

#2. Add a bit of metal patina

Copper adds such a wonderfully warm and elegant touch and was the perfect complement to the twinkly lights as well as the shiny copper tumblers and sparkly martini glasses.

Style tip: The Fairy String Light Cloche can be used with batteries, which makes it easy tor tucking anywhere in the yard or table without the mess of cords.

#3. Add outdoor string lights for even more magic

Draped from tree branches or a pergola, these Edison-style Outdoor LED Cafe string lights look absolutely incredible and give off the perfect amount of warm soft light for a dinner party.

These are LED lights, which makes them even more fantastic and cool to the touch compared to regular lights.

Style tip: String several strands together and create a stunning display above a table by zig-zagging the strands back and forth at various heights.

    I love your taste – matches mine exactly!! Oh, Peonies – my most favorite bloom in the world!! Tree – Tulip
    Magnolia Awesome!! The blush Peonies and Tulip Magnolia Blooms are the most beautiful ever – anywhere.
    I would love to know where you live. The little white house, in your backyard I would guess – I’ve always
    wanted one in a backyard like yours. I’m entertaining the idea of enlarging a playhouse and building it to
    live in. I think that would be perfect. I have a photo of one and have made it into an adult living space. It’s
    just adorable. I would love to bring it to fruition. For one adult and my little dog, “Sir Knight Bentley Alexander.”
    Otherwise known as “Ben” – he has such a perfect little puppy face and is the best little boy ever!!
