I was so inspired by this image that I went looking for the bits and bobs to put it together. The more I looked, the more inspired I got.
I love the idea of Chinese paper lanterns but you can’t always hang them at your location. Here they are used as the centerpiece.
Just a couple of notes here. Since they are paper, be careful with any candles you use. For the lanterns themselves, I suggest you use battery operated LED lights. You might even want to use the battery operated candles.
You also want to weight the lanterns with a few river rocks. Those puppies are pretty light and you don’t want you centerpieces to blow away.Tucking any leftover river rocks around the finished arrangement will add a Zen quality to your tablescape.
I found just about everything you would need at Luna Bazaar.(affiliate link) I have a set of the
Dragonfly string lights that would be perfect; I picked them up at Target on clearance.
