I love decorating with lanterns. They can be used all year round: spring, summer, fall and winter. You can find lanterns practically in any home decor store: Pottery Barn, Home Goods, Target, IKEA, West Elm, to name a few. Lanterns can be used as center pieces or hang from the ceiling. They can be used as one or grouped together for different atmospheres. They do not have to be the same shapes and sizes when grouped together, even better if they are not. It gives them the space a character.
In the summer the lanterns can be filled with a sand, shells, along with the candle.
In the winter the lanterns can be filled with pine cones, evergreen branches, Christmas ornaments
Decorating for spring or an event
Of course they can be used for regular light fixtures over your dining room table
I own a handful of lanterns that I decorate for the holidays. Are you a fan of lanterns?
