THE SHIMMERING LANTERN
Light up your garden and create a warm, radiant glow during long summer evenings with glass hurricane lanterns, says M&S.com editor, Nicola Copping.
We’re feeling upbeat and hopeful that the British weather will gift us a long, warm summer, which means that plenty of outdoor entertaining will be on the cards. Creating the perfect atmospheric light makes all the difference as the sun goes down, and it’s super easy to achieve with candles and lanterns. Placed on the ground, on a table or even suspended from trees, I love these hurricane lanterns which combine hand-beaten metal with mouth-blown, hammered-effect, recycled glass. Available in medium and large sizes, they will lend a sophisticated air to an evening in the garden. Hang or place in clusters for maximum impact.
