10 Portable Decorative Outdoor Garden Lighting Ideas

Outdoor lighting is available in a wide variety. Yet if you’re looking for modern, modern, stylish garden lights you may have to do some online digging. In order to help you pick we’ve assembled an overview of contemporary decorative lighting that outshines the much more common rustic, old-fashioned lamps and lanterns.


1. Outdoor Portable Lamp





Bloom’s Outdoor Portable Lamps are styled after traditional table lamps, but with no cable to tie them to one place. They are available in a variety of sizes, from a table-top sized 11“ to a massive 22“, and all colors of the rainbow.

All sizes come with a hidden handle at the top, and the cool-touch polythene means it doesn’t get hot when lit.


2. Oxo Candela Luau



The Oxo Candela Luau is a multi-purpose lamp. Leave it on the charging base, and it’s a stylish table lamp with a dimmable illumination. Lift it off the base and it auto-illuminates, so you can use it as a portable outdoor lamp.

Twist the base to dim the light: it lasts up to 10 hours depending on the brightness setting. Cleverly, it will also auto-illuminate in case of a power failure, so it saves having to scramble around in the kitchen drawers for candles.


3. Color Changing LED Cube Light



This Color Changing Rechargeable LED Cube brings light to a dark room in a bright way. Modern and minimalist in style, this cube is the ultimate in style-lighting for a room.

Perfect for tabletop, lighting a corner, or needing a display on multiple tables for a party or wedding, it boasts of waterproofness, quick setup, and reducing the carbon footprint by being eco-friendly.


4. Fatboy Bolleke Lamp



Simple and efficient – these are two words I would use to describe the Fatboy Bolleke Lamp. Fatboy doesn’t need complicated design or extra bits and bobbles to impress anyone.

Whether you hang it from a tree or dangle it from a doorknob, it will provide the warm glow of outdoor lighting nonetheless.


5. Mosaic Glass Solar Lamp






This cheap-and-cheerful lamp has a bulb which is powered by an integral solar panel. In the day, the mosaic glass outer sparkles prettily, and at night it glows with a bright light.

All models are white on the outside, but you can buy models with different colored internal bulbs. Hit the link to learn more about the Mosaic Glass Solar Lamp.


6. Honey  Lantern





These lights are modeled on old-fashioned Chinese paper lanterns, brought up to date with colored LED lights inside. You can set the lanterns to dynamic color change, where they cycle slowly through the rainbow, or fix your preferred color.

The Honey Lantern is rechargeable and a leather strap at the top means you can hang it up for extra illumination.


7. Balad Garden Lamp



Inspired by the days when people had to carry lanterns from room to room, the Balad Garden Lamp is a hanging lamp which can convert to a hand-held lantern with just a touch. Choose to suspend it from the stand (which doubles as a charging station), or lift it off and carry it around with you.

The lamp, available in large or small, has a white polypropylene diffuser shade with a choice of six colored handles. By using a button on the side of the lamp, you can switch between gentle ambient light and bright task light.


8. Color Changing LED Lights



These Color Changing Lights are available in a variety of shapes and sizes – balls, cubes, blocks, even a mushroom or Christmas tree. All are rechargeable and waterproof, and the larger ones are sturdy enough to sit on.

There are 16 color options and 4 color-changing modes, which can be controlled by remote or by the buttons on the base of the light. Simply plug them


9. Rattan Solar Lantern





If you’re looking for a subtle outdoors light, this is the one. Crafted from natural rattan vine (which has been fumigated and sundried), from a distance the Rattan Solar Lantern looks like a birds’ nest.

The interlacing rattan makes striking shadows on walls and floor, with a soothing dim glow.


10. Edison


Named after the inventor of the first light bulb, the Edison lamp comes in three sizes – a tiny portable one, a medium-sized desk light, and a hefty floor lamp. All three mimic the traditional shape of a shaded table lamp, but their polyethylene material lights up from top to bottom.

The all-in-one construction means it’s safe to use outside, and the rechargeable LED light gives up to 24 hours’ glow.
