Pretty Paper Lanterns

As April ushers in May, bridal showers, weddings, graduation parties and Mother’s Day celebrations are all on the horizon.



If you’re planning a spring event, paper lanterns offer a beautifully basic way to add a burst of color to your occasion.





Paper lanterns are an affordable and elegant way to add a festive touch to your decor, and they’re available in a wide variety of colors and patterns.  Select your paper lantern first and use that for your design inspiration.











If your event will feature colored lighting or if your space is painted with a great color, white paper lanterns will make a grand statement.





These days, the options for paper lanterns are endless.  I love this red, white and blue trio (below).  July 4th will be here before you know it!

  1. I am a huge paper lantern fan! I just recently discovered that you can paint theme. Yes! If you cannot find that perfect shade to match your party decor, simply buy white ones and then paint using a sponge brush dipped in your color mixture using food coloring and water! Really!

  2. Hi Kelly,

    Speaking of paper lanterns. Do you have any suggestions for where I can find some in the area. Need to complete my balcony before the summer is over.

    Wonderful post – great eye candy.
