Paper lanterns are a great way to add some “oomph” to your party! They’re affordable, come in any color you can think of, and add impact wherever you want it (i.e. hung all over your venue or just over specific areas like cake tables or dessert buffets). During the day, paper lanterns are beautiful just for their color alone, but when they’re lit at night, they cast a magical glow over your event. And depending on the colors you choose–and the overall theme of your wedding (or party)–paper lanterns can handle any style, from whimsical to elegant. At Classical Tents, we have a great selection of paper lanterns, in several colors and sizes (we find it works best to use multiple sizes at the same time to add more interest), and if you’re looking for something that we don’t have in stock, we are able to get whatever you need. We’ve assembled some images of paper lanterns, below, including a few new faves–hung from chairs as aisle markers, used as vases for centerpieces and dressed up like hanging bubble gum!

Many of you, I’m sure, have by now been to at least one wedding where the beautiful (and colorful!) Japanese paper lanterns were hung from the ceiling. For quite some time now, this has been a popular and affordable way of really changing a venue’s (or tent’s) look, while adding lots of dimension and color. But recently, we’ve noticed that more couples are opting to hang various lanterns (rustic, metal, moroccan, etc.) instead. It’s kind of nice to see a variation on a tried and true form of ambient lighting!
