                                To create this dreamy dessert table decor, you just need some string and insert paper lanterns on this string (like beads
                                for a necklace).

a wall for a magical statement piece for your home!

                                possibilities of the 
room and ceiling, i.e. light fixtures, beams, window frames etc. to create a "net" with fishing line or twine.
                                 This gorgeous and one-of-a-kind table decoration is very easy to create: using 4 or 5 baboos (found in gardens or in
                                 garden center)

                       How to decorate your wedding with paper lanterns
                                Congratulations on getting married! Here are our best tips to create a gorgeous wedding setup with our
                                paper lanterns!

                                And we
 have so many one-of-a-kind colors that you can be sure to create a unique piece of décor for a memorable event.
                                All our products are really easy to hang and to mix and match to fit your wedding theme (castle wedding, nautical, boho...)
 specific venue.Last but not least, many of our future brides reuse their lanterns after their wedding to decorate their
                                first child's
 birthday or their home!

                                 HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR COLORS ?
                                 If you're starting to plan your big day, you might already have in mind a specific theme (nautical, boho...), a favorite color
                                 palette (pastel,
 neutral, all white...) or a specific kind of atmosphere for the celebration and reception decor. Since we have
                                 so many one-of-a-kind colors
 to choose from, you will be able to add some lanterns to your wedding decoration, whatever
                                 your vision.

                                 Mixing and matching our colors will enable you to create a very unique wedding decoration.
                                         Some future brides like to match their lanterns to other details of the wedding, for instance floral arrangements on the
                                 tables, or stationary
 color palette. 

                                Now our dearest tip, just for you: don't get too anxious over the exact accuracy of your paper lantern colors. The finish
                                will greatly vary 
according the luminosity of the venue where you will hang your lanterns, because of the difference of
                                materials between some of lanterns 
(like paper lanterns, made of very thin paper) and others (accordion paper lanterns,
                                in thicker paper). Also if you shop some of our products
 that do not match 100% your Pantone references, once hung on
                                the ceiling, the general feeling will be totally in line with your wedding color
 palette or theme. 

                                White is always a good idea!
                                If you are still hesitating about colors, why don't you go for simple white. We have a lot of different "whites" and you could
                                create a nice 
combination of plain or eyelet lanterns, accordion lanterns and pompoms. The end result will be gorgeous and
                                always elegant, whatever the
 theme or the venue. Our all-time favorite lanterns for wedding decoration are the eyelet and
                                lace lanterns... 



                                In general, our clients choose to decorate their wedding with traditionnal shapes like paper lanterns, accordion paper
                                lanterns andpompoms,
 but you could absolutely add some honeycomb balls or star lanterns to the mix.  
                                For a great party backdrop, paper fans are always a great choice as they are super easy to hang and cover a lot of space. 

                               Most important for a great wedding set-up is accumulation. According to your budget and your vision, you can decide to
                               decorate the entire 
space or just selected parts of your venue (the dancefloor, a dessert table or the bride and groom's table
                               for example).

                               To decorate the entire venue ceiling using some lanterns here and there as touches of color, we recommend 9 paper lanterns
                               or other 
decorations for every 18 square meters of space (190 square feet). You can of course adjust to what you feel is right
                               for your wedding and 
your budget. For a fuller look, go ahead for 9 paper lanterns or other decoration for 8 square meters (85
                               square feet).

                               Check out our paper lantern sets for turnkey venue decorations!
                               You can also draw your event space with its main features like tables or dance floor,  and draw a circle wherever you want a
                               lantern. This will
 give you an idea of how many lanterns you would like to have.
                               For a specific and more limited space to decorate, you should concentrate the lanterns a bit more so that the final effect is quite
                               dense. For 1
 square meter of ceiling, use approx. 3 paper lanterns 35cm, 2 accordion paper lanterns 30cm, 3 accordion paper
                               lanterns 20cm, 1 pompom
 40cm, 2 pompoms 20cm.
                               Another solution is to string a very fine twine along the centerfold of your wedding tent and mix and match color forms that suit
                               your wedding
 best. Each piece has a small hook for paper lanterns or a small string attaching the honeycomb ball and paper fan.
                               That way it's super easy
 to hang them from the central twine.
                               We also really like when a group of 6-7 elements are hung together at some points of a wedding venue, or in the trees for an
                               outdoor cocktail 
party or reception.
                                Remember we are always at your service if you need help to define the final number of paper lanterns you need to purchase for
                                your event.                 

                                HOW TO HANG PAPER LANTERNS IN YOUR WEDDING VENUE ?
                                All our paper lanterns and accordion paper lanterns have a small metallic insert or hook that you can use to hang the lanterns
                                from fishing line
 or thread. Our other products (honeycomb balls, paper fans, paper pompoms) have a small string you can use
                                for hanging. Once you’ve
checked the hanging possibilities for your wedding venue, you can go ahead and decide the best way to

                                Creating a paper lantern sky for your wedding reception
                                The easiest way to go is to string fishing line or thread to create a « net » over your party venue, on which you will be able to
                                hang your paper
 lanterns and at different heights.
                                In a wedding tent, you can also use the metallic structure of the ceiling for an easy hanging solution.
                                If you want to decorate only specific spaces in your venue (i.e. the dance floor or dessert table), you use the same technique in
                                the smaller area.

                               Hanging paper lantern groupings
                               If you choose to create paper lantern clusters to hang at different points of your venue, here's the easiest way to proceed:
                               you can create 
these on the floor or at your height, using a common string loop that you will be able to easily hang once the
                               cluster is ready. You could
 totally use tree branches if your celebration is outdoors!
                               Decorating your venue specific features
                               Some of our clients also use specific features of their venue to hang paper lanterns: a staircase, balcony etc. Concentrating
 decorations around these features will create a great dramatic effect.
                               For a pretty party backdrop
                               If you have organized a photo corner, or want a pretty backdrop for your dessert buffet, use our paper fans that are super
                               decorative and so
 easy to set up. Most of the time, washi tape can be used (although you need to test if it is strong enough
                               to holds your décor for a long period).

                               You can tape small sized paper lanterns on a big piece of cardboard for a modern and super festive backdrop.
                               Our LOVE oversized balloons look also amazing as a party backdrop. Easy to inflate (no helium needed if you do not want
                               them to fly) and
 very decorative!

                      Most of our clients use them as simple decoration items without illumination (which also has an impact on budget)  but if you would like
                               some lights in your lanterns, for the product "paper lantern" in sizes 35cm and 50cm, you can use a bulb of 
40W max,
                               making sure you center the bulb right in the middle of the lantern, using the little "C" hook on top of the lantern
 to fix the
                               electrical cord.

                               You can also use LED bulb of maximum 40W. For baby lanterns (15cm) and accordion lanterns you can only use mini
                               battery-operated LED lights. We strongly recommend the BUTTONLITE LED lights that are, according us, the best lighting
                               system for our products (available on this site)
