I would love to have Chinese lanterns hanging in our reception room, however the ceilings are too high to reach without scaffolding. I saw the below picture of lanterns as a centerpiece. Any idea on how to go about creating this look? Thank you!

@Augustbride2013wedding: These lanterns are hung on flexible rods. You could use thin bamboo garden stakes, or any other rod that is flexible enough to bend with only the weight of a paper lantern.
I would go to the hardware and craft stores and see what they have that you like the look of.
You might need to add a weight to the lantern to get them to drape in a nice arch.
Depending on what you use to hang the lanterns, you could insert them into a heavy vase, a patio umbrella stand with a piece of pipe inserted into it, etc.
