Planning a BIG wedding? (Wednesday discount day)

Brides to be ...... Take advantage of our Wednesday discount day (2 March 2011), and enjoy the 10% discount on our biggest selling wedding paper lantern - the BIGGEST (50cm diametre) deluxe cotton-flocked paper lantern in white.

Here's a close-up of the stunning pattern!

This lantern is available in 2 sizes, perfect if you are hanging them randomly or in clusters at different heights! 30cm and 50cm diametre in white, 30cm in pink!

This design has been incredibly popular this season, for garden, marquee and indoor weddings. They illuminate well, and cast a stunning patterned lighting effect on the ceiling and nearby walls, due to the eyelet cutouts! Our customers have also been using this lantern design for christening parties, baby showers and little girls parties!

Like all our other paper lanterns, these will also fold flat for storage when not in use.

Lanterns and lighting all in stock and available now at See specials on home page for this offer.

I'm currently planning the next container, and we will be adding black lanterns in this design too! Email me if you have any other colour requests.

So Pretty!

Usually I share pictures with you all of lanterns featured in parties or weddings, but today I thought I'd show you another way to decorate with lanterns.

(image from

So soft and pretty, these white paper lanterns perfectly fill the corner space in this little girls bedroom!

You too can get this look with the white irregular ribbed paper lanterns shown in the picture, or you could use regular round paper lanterns. I think it also would look nice with the silk lanterns in a white or powder pink too!

All lanterns in stock and available at - we deliver anywhere in Australia!

Happy Decorating!

Wedding Inspiration - Parasols

Wanting to add a splash of colour to your wedding???

These coloured parasols are the perfect accessory to these bright and fun dresses! Great for Spring and Summer weddings. Not only do they look fabulous, but they will also keep the wedding party a little bit cooler, by providing shade from our harsh Australian sun!

At Lanternshop, we have both paper and nylon parasols, in plain designs and with print. Available in 9 great colours.

Pictured here with my buddah, is a collage of the full colour range of the nylon parasols. The most popular colours this season - white, dark pink, mango yellow and red!

I'm heading back to China in the next few months, so if you have any requests of a particular colour or style or parasol or wedding decoration you are needing, please email me details to

I'm thinking of chocolate parasols for autumn or winter .......

Chocolate lanterns - wedding inspiration!

Happy Valentines Day!! For me, when I think of Valentines Day, I think of chocolate! (actually, I'm always thinking of chocolate)!

Chocolate paper lanterns are a great alternative to the traditional colour palettes. Here's something to inspire you - I love this combination of chocolate, orange and white. This combination has a warm, romantic feel, and not only great for a summer wedding or party, these colours would also be perfect for Autumn and Winter weddings ..... the possibilities are endless!
