A birthday party is the ideal time to use sky lanterns. Traditionally sky lanterns are used to celebrate grand occasions and to send well wishes and prayers to the heavens. What better time than a celebration of the birth of a loved one to continue the tradition of sky lanterns in the celebration? May Taurus’ birthdays are special and why not make sure your special Taurus birthday honouree has a great time and is sent into their next year of life in style?

How to Use Sky Lanterns for a Birthday Party

Sky lanterns come individually wrapped so they can store well. They do not take up a lot of room and will stay clean and safe until you want to use them. For a birthday party you can use traditional white sky lanterns but if you want to have a really festive spirit you should use the multi coloured sky lanterns. One good idea is to release one sky lantern for every year the person has been alive. This is a great way to symbolize the occasion. Or you can simply have a sky lantern for every guest who attends the party and they can each release their sky lantern during the launch time.

Personalize Sky Lanterns for an Extra Special Send Off

One way you can make the occasion even more special is to have the sky lanterns personalized. Sky lanterns used to be released as a form of prayer or a means to make a wish. The belief was that because they were floating up in the sky that it was closer to the gods so more easily heard. The same premise holds true for birthday wishes. Have every guest write a special prayer, well wishes, anecdote, memory or hope for the future. Using a Sharpie marker is the perfect way to write a personalized message on the lantern. When it is time to release the sky lanterns each person can recite their message to the birthday honouree and then release the lanterns one at a time.

Take Pictures of the Memorable Event

Once all the sky lanterns are in the air you will see the glow for several miles. Even those who are not at the party will be able to see the spectacle for miles. The sky will be alight with the glow from several lanterns. Although the celebration itself will be something to be remembered for years, you should also make sure to take plenty of pictures. You may even find that some of the pictures are so beautiful that you will print and frame them as a memento.

Conservation and Safety

Some people may be concerned with what will happen to the sky lanterns once they are launched. The good news is that sky lanterns are 100% biodegradable and are flame retardant. You can rest assured that lighting and flying the sky lanterns is perfectly safe. In addition you will not contribute to any environmental waste because the lanterns will degrade once they are exposed to the elements. You can even get eco friendly lanterns that contain no wire and degrade even faster.
