Loving Lanterns

Lanterns continue to be all the rage and I love the look for entertaining. For a picnic, an intimate dinner outside (or in) or a wedding, a few lanterns are the perfect way to add a soft glow to your party.

Here is a shot of how Party Resources used lanterns to lead guests from the cocktail tent to the dinner tent.
