Wimbledon is once again upon us here in the UK and it is a time for celebration. Not only does this tennis event bring big name tennis players to the UK to visit and give us a chance to try to see them in public but it also happens to be one of the most well respected tennis tournaments in the world. Boasting some of the best play, the best players and even the most fair and consistent officiating in the world, Wimbledon is simply tennis perfection. For viewers around the globe, this tennis tournament is riveting tennis and is actually the most watched tennis tournie in the world. For those here in the UK, celebrating after a day of intense tennis should be a relaxing experience, which is where sky lanterns come in.

Traditionally, floating lanterns were used in ancient China as a way to send prayers to the heavens in hopes they would be answered. Today, the traditional Chinese lantern as well as our more modern versions are still used for this purpose plus many others, with only one’s imagination being the limiter to their use. For those looking to use sky lanterns in their traditional way, sending up prayers for strength, agility and luck for their favourite tennis player is certainly an option. Our traditional Chinese lanterns are an excellent choice for this, blending only a couple very tiny minor touches into a floating lantern that dates back thousands of years. They are available in various colours, enough to pick the perfect colour for any player and are available here:

For those who want to kick off Wimbledon’s first night with a bang, one of our party season packages is a perfect choice. As the sun goes down and the first day of play comes to an end, the lanterns, ice fountains, snow and glow stick accessories all encourage the party to last well into the night. Our small package comes with enough fun for four to six people and includes sixteen sky lanterns as well as glowstick items from our partner site such as glow bunny ears, glasses, bracelets and more. For the bigger party, our largest package is designed to accommodate 50 or more people and includes 80 sky lanterns as well as enough glowing items for everyone. Click here for more information:

Finally, for those tennis and Wimbledon fans who want to celebrate but are extra concerned about the environment, we here at have a package for you as well. Our eco sky lantern collection is available and takes biodegradable night sky lanterns to a new level. All of our lanterns are biodegradable but the wire that holds the fuel cell does take a bit of time to degrade. Our Eco lanterns are wire-free and instead use alternate means of supporting the fuel cell, making them wire free and reducing the degradation time from lantern to nothing from a few months to a few weeks and all of the materials are safe for livestock as well.
