Lovin Paper Lanterns

We all know how popular Paper Lanterns have become.
From the white to the bright bold colors we've been using them to add a big impact on our events with a fairly low cost. I'm noticing now that we are beginning to not only use them plain, but to add different types of materials TO them to change their look a bit. I like it!
from Fig & Rubyand Martha Stewart
and mine :)
I added diamond gems to the lantern and strung large silver sequins onto fishing line from the base of the lantern.

I do like them plain too. :)
from joyful weddings and events
SO next time you want to use paper lanterns at your party...keep in mind, they are cute plain OR decorated. :)

We actually used football-shaped lanterns for my son's birthday party in January. They were so fun!
