Decorate with Lanterns

Lanterns (small)

Looking for the perfect accessory to update your home this Spring?!  Look no further….the hottest accessory out there is the lantern.  Used both inside and out, lanterns add a touch of style by day and a stunning glow by night to any room.  Perfect for outdoor entertaining, you can get so creative with these!

There are so many different ways to customize your lantern-style:

  • Make a bold statement with an over-sized lantern placed on the ground
  • Use a series of lanterns lining a path or patio
  • Hang small lanterns from your umbrella
  • Play with proportion by arranging groups of different sized lanterns on your fireplace mantel or as a centerpiece on your dining room table
  • Fill the bottom of your lanterns with decorative objects such as moss, rocks, flower petals or shells and starfish for summer

Lanterns are readily available this season – different metals, colors – at all different price points.  Check out these at Pottery Barn, Resortation Hardware, and West Elm.
