In the summertime when the weather is high…

25/04/2017 Parties,


There is no doubt that festivals have become a regular part of the British summer scene. There are the world famous music festivals at Reading, Leeds, Glastonbury and V at Chelmsford or the more sedate annual book festival at Wye. Whether you favour music, food and drink, film, literature or the arts, festival culture is part of our heritage. International, national or local – there’s something for everyone.


Paper Lanterns UK has its part to play in decorating both indoor and outdoor venues during the festival season. Our lanterns make the perfect, affordable overhead decoration for large marquees and tents as well as a great addition outside when the weather is kind.


Use our fine nylon wire which is almost invisible to create the impression that the lanterns are literally ‘floating’ in thin air. At night they look stunning when illuminated using our battery operated LED lights. These come with single, double or triple bulbs depending on the level of lighting which is appropriate to the setting. An alternative is to string up traditional lights and intersperse our paper lanterns in between each bulb.


For a lower ceiling consider using our Saturn shaped lanterns which give the same impact but are less deep than the traditional spherical shape. We are on hand to help you every step of the way with design ideas and colour combinations. Send us a photo of your venue, give us a ring and we are only too happy to make some suggestions which match your theme and your budget. For a fiesta feel we have lots of hot colours in a range of sizes, including red, fuchsia, orange, yellow, purple and gold. You can even buy party packs – 12 paper lanterns in a mix of vibrant or pastel shades 8”, 12” or 16” in diameter.


And remember if you look after your lanterns they can be used year after year.
