My room was longer than yours (probably 100×50) but we just congregated all of the paper lanterns towards the center 50 ft.  I was doing red and white with orange as an accent color and so I bought 5-12″ red, 6-12″ white, 2-20″ orange, 5-8″ orange and 3-8″ white lanterns.

If I had the chance to do it again I would probably buy at least twice as many lanterns for my space, if not 3x.  Also, if you plan on having any guys help you put them up print off a bunch of inspiration pictures of what you want – my dad and uncles had NO CLUE how the lanterns were supposed to look or how closely to space them.  In the end they weren’t at all how I wanted them, but I was too stressed/busy at that point to really care…pictures would have been really helpful.
