Something magical is slowly revealed during a summer evening, as it pours itself into night. Emerging fireflies and the power of a full moon cut through blackness. Night’s mysterious qualities have been the subject of philosophers, poets and artists. Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh captured its illustrious power in The Starry Night. His use of light and color and texture has made the masterpiece one of Van Gogh’s most brilliant. No matter how beautiful, a still image lacks one of night’s most powerful and evocative elements—movement—as natural forces interact in a play of power.
Summer nights are meant for long drawn-out cocktail parties and sultry romantic dinners. Casual neighborhood barbeques continue long after the sun dips beyond the horizon. Night serves as the ideal backdrop for small gatherings and large celebrations. Shifting light and shadow paired with the fluidity of water delivers drama like nothing else.
Planning an outdoor celebration around a pond or water feature, surrounded by soft greenery and robust stone, will serve as the grand focal point to any party. Draped in drama, a pond dotted with floating lights reflect a world within another. OASE LunaLED Mini Lights can be used on land or submerged in water for greater impact.

Most love a good party, but not everybody can throw one. Certainly considered a skill, if not an art, planning a good celebration is part mindset, part theatre. Each element is a reflection of tone and style, formality and ambiance. All must work together for a party that guests consider a can’t miss. Ensure success by throwing an outdoor party around a landscaped pond and garden, strategically lit to accentuate the beauty of nature.
