 My fiancé and I have done things all backwards. We have two wonderful kids, Wyatt (two years) and Samantha (7 months). It has taken a while for us to plan our wedding and we finally got a date, ceremony spot, and a venue for the after party.

Our theme for the wedding is blue and a beach-y theme, but without the seashells. The wedding ceremony is going to be on the beach. For the after party we are having it at one of my bridesmaid's mother-in-law's house. I so far have an idea for food and I am currently working on decoration ideas.

I was extremely happy when I was given the opportunity to review these Chinese Lanterns by Party City and Beyond. I have always loved the look of Chinese Lanterns and thought it would be a perfect decoration for my after party! 

When I got them in the mail they came all flat in a sealed plastic bag (shown above). There are two parts to the paper lantern, the lantern itself and the metal insert. The metal insert is placed so it maintains its circular shape.

To be completely honest, it took me a moment to realize why the lantern was not circular as shown in the picture. I finally dug through the bag again and found the metal insert. I kind of felt silly for not realizing there was a second part to the lantern!


As you see in the image of the metal insert, there is an end with a circular looking part. When you insert this piece into the lantern you hold the end with the circular part. It is fairly easy to put together these lanterns.


As soon as the lantern was together I had a flood of ideas to spice up these lanterns for the after party! Another great thing about this product is the fact it comes with a DIY book with ideas to decorate the lanterns!

My wedding is going to be in May and I absolutely cannot wait to start the preparations for the wedding! We are also in the process of buying a house, so I have not really had the space or time. If I did I would have some things already done by now! Anyways before I deviate too much on the subject of wedding preparations...

You can find these great lanterns
here and don't forget you get a free e-book along with the lanterns!
