Paper Lanterns Party
Decorative paper lanterns party lights are traditionally used for cultural celebrations and festivals such the Chinese New year. Today, paper lanterns are used for almost every occasion, from weddings to parties, as paper lanterns party lights now come in almost every imaginable color, shape, or size.
The history of Chinese lanterns dates back about two thousand years ago. However, these colorful lanterns were not first used for decorative purposes. They were initially used to help the military. A popular military leader named Zhuge Liang created the first flying lantern in China. According to historical records, the shape of the first paper lantern was modeled after the hat that Liang was wearing. Lanterns were also initially utilized at the advent of the third century as they were used as a signal as well as a spy blimp during war. Lanterns were first referred to as sky candles. Sky lanterns were used in many rituals, as they were believed to carry messages to the gods.
Similarly, paper lanterns were also used in many ceremonial practices such as weddings. White gauze paper lanterns party lights were often utilized during ceremonies along with four red paper letters attached to the lantern. The characters adorned on the lanterns would include expressions regarding respect as well as wishes for a hundred children and a thousand grandchildren.
Paper lanterns party lights were also used to represent the return of spring. Lantern festivals are usually held during this time. Chinese people believe that lantern festivals symbolized the relation of people, nature, and higher beings which made it possible for the light of the spring to return every year.
One of the prettiest ways to decorate a tent for a wedding reception, or any space for that matter, is to hang a collection of paper lanterns party lights from the ceiling. Hanging them couldn’t be simpler. If you choose not to light them, for a daytime wedding for instance, you can just tie a piece of clear fishing line to the wire hook and then hang them from the rafters or tent supports.
Illuminated paper lanterns party lights add a beautiful effect and are just as easy to hang. Using our paper lanterns with battery powered LED lights will work anywhere, but are especially handy if you want to light a garden space.
You can choose several different sizes in the same color and suspend them at different heights for a dramatic monochromatic theme. Or by hanging them in a tighter cluster over a focal point and then space the lanterns farther apart as you get farther away from the center. Wherever you want to hang paper lanterns party lights, you will draw the attention you desire to get your guests feeling comfortable, warm and cozy.
