It seems unfathomable right now to think about entertaining outdoors, but cooler weather is coming soon. My latest crush for decorating outdoors is with lanterns, and I especially love oversized lanterns.
Scattering lanterns in your yard can add an artsy effect.
Hanging lanterns in trees creates a magical effect.
Lanterns are lovely scattered about in the yard, where they add light and art to a garden, or collected in the corners of a patio or deck, casting a warm glow around the evening. Everyone looks better in candlelight, and lanterns ensure no crisp fall gust will dim the radiance.
Lanterns are a great way to embellish your coffee table.
While they add perfect ambiance to your outdoor space, lanterns can also be brought indoors during the colder months to add that much needed glow to keep your home cozy. And since the flame is enclosed, lanterns are a bit safer than candles alone. They add nice drama and can fill an empty space in your house.
Lanterns create a beautiful tablescape.
Lanterns can make a beautiful centerpiece for your table as well. Smaller lanterns are nice for sit down dinners and the larger ones are great for a buffet table.
Here are some tips when decorating with lanterns.
