June 12th marks the official birthday of our Queen. As such, it is a very joyous day in the UK and there are celebrations galore. For those lucky few who got tickets to the actual parade, they will have a great time watching the official Trooping the Colour parade. The queen will arrive by horse-drawn carriage and the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards will be participating in the parade. However, for those who wish to celebrate the queen’s birthday but did not get tickets to the parade, watching the event on the BBC is a viable option. After the festivities are over, launching sky lanterns can actually be a great way to end the event.

Sky Lantern’s Tradition

The tradition of using sky lanterns dates back thousands of years to the Chinese lanterns that were set to float away to take prayers to the heavens. These prayers were often for family and fortune but were equally as likely to be for a person in power, including the emperor of region of China they lived. In fact, many Chinese emperors would celebrate their reign with sky lanterns or wish for prosperity by using them.

By combining this eastern tradition with the celebration of the birth of our Queen, the effect can be beautiful. From our traditional Chinese lanterns to more modern and larger interpretations, has many options for wishing for another year of health for the Queen. Our traditional sky lanterns are available in white as well as various colours. The white sky lanterns can be purchased here and the coloured lanterns are available here.

Bigger Celebrations call for Bigger Lanterns

If there is a group wishing to really make an impact with sky lanterns, has options for them as well. One way is to go big with our Giant Sky Lanterns or the Mega Cube Sky Lantern.  The Giant sky lantern is a cylindrical style lantern and stands up at 2 metres tall, taller than many of those who will want to wish to launch these into the night sky. The Mega Cube Sky Lantern is a giant square, 1.5 metres square to be exact. They have a giant fuel cell and fill quickly and float for quite a distance. They are a perfect way to make a visually stunning impact and even put a written message on the side. With our available sharpie markers: messages to the Queen on her birthday will be visible to everyone as this super-sized take on the Chinese lantern floats up and away.

Instead of making an impression with size, quantity can easily substitute. With our warehouse full of Chinese Hanging Lanterns , we can accommodate even the largest and boldest group launch of sky lanterns. Our coloured lantern packages are available in packages as small as six and as large as 48 and multiple orders of 48 can be facilitated easily. Available here: these are a great way to make a big visual impact and with the help of a few friends, they can be setup and launched quickly providing a big impact to wish the Queen a happy birthday.
