Lanterns

I love hanging lanterns in trees and when I saw this beautiful image I thought how gorgeous it is that they have mixed up all sorts of lanterns in one tree - I love this!! Usually I hang the same sorts of lanterns in one tree but from now on I am going to start mixing it up a bit. I have a beautiful pink/yellow Frangipani tree at home which I often hang lanterns in when we are having a dinner party outside. I can't wait for our next dinner party - I am going to do the Frangipani tree just like this!! Thanks once again Sarah Kaye for the inspiration!!

Yes Aren’t lanterns just whimsical and magical? They can convert any garden into a delightful environment.

I've been away for two weeks so haven't posted much. I have enjoyed catching up on the pink & yellow posts. Yellow was a colour I didn't think I liked, but this year I've developed quite the liking for it.

I have my eye on a Moroccan inspired lantern (s) for our deck for the summer. We don't have any trees, but I see a grouping of 3 lanterns in the corner all lit up, with us eating at our teak table.

And I just ordered My French Life. I couldn't wait until we were home next.

My husband is the antique lantern collector in our house. We only have a few (he's picky and not a fully trained shopper) but we have a few outside in the garden, which he electrified with a bulb and inside too. But, hanging in trees? What a fantastic idea! I'm definitely going down that road. Lovely inspiration.

This image reminds me of this restaurant/shop in Bali. It was right next to a jungle. It had lanterns hanging around the place on some of the trees. I was there when it had stopped raining and it was gloomy. It looked absolutely beautiful! If only I could remember the name of the place.

Thank You for posting~
