Lighting: As the sun sets, the lighting will play a pivotal role.

Therefore, use soft, warm lights like fairy lights, lanterns, and candles to maintain the glow. Consider string lights overhead or lining pathways to add a touch of magic as daylight fades.

Decor: To bring sunset to life, incorporate: 

Florals: Choose flowers that mimic sunset colors, such as dahlias, roses, and peonies in shades of orange, pink, and red.

Table Settings: Use sunset hues in table runners, napkins, and centerpieces. Golden cutlery and glassware can add a touch of elegance.
