I think those lanterns are beautiful and that’s a good price.


I also saw something similar on a wedding blog recently, except they used tiny lanterns (just big enough to fit a tealight) with a name tag/seating assignment tied to each one. So then I guess the guests would accumulate their lanterns at their table which would give a nice glow I think, and double as favors. So that’s name card holder, favor, and centerpiece all in one! Or it could be at least.

Ikea sells lanterns http://www.ikea.com/us/en/search/?query=lantern.  These come in solid black or solid silver for $7.99, but they have ones starting at $3.99 as well:

I personally love the look of lanterns as centerpieces.  I’ve seen pictures where they have moss underneath them as well, and it looks so amazing.

And sorry, I can’t get on to ebay from work, it’s blocked, otherwise I would have commented on your link 🙁  Can you post a picture?

I think the ones you found are really pretty. If youre thinking theyre too plain, maybe add a little greenery or something around the base?

Those are beautiful! I think they would look nice with flowers at the base, but not blue ones of course. What are your wedding colors?

Oh, I think lanterns look very romantic! If you’re worried about them looking too plain, I like the suggestions to add some moss or greenery around them. I think that would be enough, and would give kind of an “enchanted forest” look.

I was going to post the second pic that zippylef: posted.  I think it is a great look and could be easily adapted to your Moroccan style lanterns.

Hanging them on a stand is another alternative.
