As Christmas and New Year’s Eve roll around, use these lighting hacks to ace your terrace party home interior deign

Lighting plays a beautiful role in bringing together the décor for an outdoor party. Done right, it can set the perfect mood for those dusk gatherings. You need the lightning to be both beautiful and functional so try layering different light sources and stick to soft, warm light.

Candles and kerosene lamps
One way to light your outdoor table setting is with candles or kerosene lamps. Place a few pillar candles of varying heights in a large glass hurricane and fill it with a couple of inches of sand, pebbles, etc. You can also set lamps on the floor or hang them up at strategic points.

DIY lamps
Fill a few glass bottles – apothecary bottles look great – with lamp oil. Attach wicks to the corks and you’ve got easy oil lamps that can be placed in glass hurricanes. Mason jars also work well; add a little colour to the oil before pouring to make it look extra festive.

Garden Torches
Place garden torches around the perimeter of the terrace for warm ambient lighting. Get your hands-on oil-filled torches that are attachable to railings, deck or table mounted or even spiked versions that can be placed in planters.

Solar powered lights
There are a lot of options when it comes to solar powered outdoor lighting. You can also find box lights and LED wall lamps, candles and fairy lights, as well as hurricanes and spotlights that are solar powered. You can choose from white, yellow light and colour changing versions.

Battery operated lights
Try battery-operated string lights and lanterns which can be placed anywhere – wrapped around bamboo shoots or a trellis, placed on the table bunched into glass hurricanes or large mason jars, or strung up above to create a canopy.

Fireplaces and pots
Use portable, bio-ethanol tabletop fireplaces and fire pots that can be placed anywhere.

Instead of sticking to one kind of lighting, mix up things with votives and kerosene lamps. Pair these with potted winter plants and you’re all set for a night long party.

Hurricanes with jali patterns and cutwork and an oxidised coating are a great way to introduce some dim lighting on your terrace. You could string them up on fairy lights as well for double the glow.
candles in tall jars or glass tubes for terrace interior design - Beautiful Homes
Create a curtain of lights – suspend string bulbs, you can even consider Edison bulbs for this. Below this shower of bulbs, create a sea of candle light by placing candles in tall jars or glass tubes.
portable fireplaces and pots for terrace interior design - Beautiful Homes
Portable fireplaces and pots serve a dual purpose – they provide relief from cold shudders and also help light up the space. Their mobility is an added advantage.
garden torches for terrace interior design - Beautiful Homes
Get your hands on a garden or tiki torch to perch on your terrace railing. You can either place them at regular intervals or group them in clusters of four for a brighter light. These can be used especially for those elusive corners that always seem to be covered in shadows.
