Simple and super effective, the twinkle of fairy lights is evocative, magical and versatile. These twinkling lights are no longer just the preserve of Christmas and winter parties. Use them all year round and take inspiration from these tips to make your event a magical wonderland.

Oyster Pearl Ambience

We adorn our Oyster Pearl with fairy lights under the lining, winding down the leg drapes which creates a subtle, starlit ambience. On a practical level, these are often the only lighting required in the tent. The tent is lined in seamless magical twinkles which casts a beautiful, soft light. It is amazingly effective and creates an enchanting atmosphere.

The Trees Are Aglow

The trees in your venue are the perfect outdoor furniture to decorate. The canopy can be swathed in lights. Wind the length down the trunks and branches. If the branches are bare, experiment with different sizes of fairy lights and festoon for that star quality.

Dancefloor Netted Canopy

Lowering the ceiling on the dancefloor is a classic way to boost intimacy and vibe. Use one of our fairy light nets to create the perfect take on an 80s starlight ceiling. Just apply Donna Summer and you’re good to go.

Events Director and Founder

Katherine is the founder of Arabian Tents and her day is a whirlwind of meeting clients, writing emails (lots of them!), brainstorming décor ideas and snatching moments to feel very lucky she loves what she does.

When throwing a party it’s always colourful, inviting, warm and relaxing – she loves the Purple Palace interior as it apparently looks good against everyone and she makes sure there is always a ‘surprise’ for guests, whether it be a secret room to discover, an alternative performance or after-dinner liqueur treats. She believes that people parties are important and moments at them are remembered for the rest of people’s lives, so it’s important to break the ice as fast as possible and get on with having fun! The next project she’s working on is a new structure design that should be manufactured and ready to be unveiled to the world next year!
