Here we have three differant styles and sizes of lanterns to create a gorgeous vignette. For the larger lantern in the back, the topiary in the terra cotta pot is highlighted with the tea candles surrounding the base.
Beautiful grouping displayed with natural materials and creamy white candles. Simple but elegant.
I found a great selection of lanterns at Old Time Pottery. So many styles and I can imagine them decorated with candles and fillers. The prices were extremely reasonable with the largest size being 29.99. The galvanized would be gorgeous on a screened porch or sunroom.
This idea from Nell Hill takes my breath away. She placed lanterns outside so that they sparkled through the windows. Wouldn't this be gorgeous on a cold, snowy night. Does that woman ever have a bad idea???
I'm crazy about this idea - again from Nell Hill - for placing an urn on a garden planter and dressing up with ribbon and greens. This is stunning and could be easily duplicated for maximum appeal.
