Lanterns and lights have to be my weakness. I'm sorta like a bug attracted to pretty lights. These lanterns as shown would be good for outdoor events in gardens or around trees in parks. If inside these could hang from the ceiling to lighten the room up.
I've always wanted a glamorous New Years' eve party with this theme. We don't drink in my family, only on trips (like glass of wine in France or Italy) or parties or special occasions like New Years: must have champagne that night.
