FacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUponRedditLinkedInPinterestDiggEmail sells many different Chinese Hanging Lanterns on a daily basis but our best selling lantern product is the Traditional sky lanterns, available here: White Traditional Sky Lanterns. They are timeless in their design and are the most well known design thanks to their traditional origins, not to mention some excellent adverts that have come out in the past few years highlighting the traditional paper lantern design as part of or at the center of the advert. The big question for many people though, is what are others doing with sky lanterns?

From Casual to Formal, Sky Lanterns Add to Gatherings

We know from repeat customers that many people buy our traditional lanterns to launch at festivals during the summer. Most of these sky lantern launches at festivals are done as a fun distraction between musical acts or as a way to wind down after the last band has hit their last chord. However, some of the more festive sky lantern buyers will launch them during performances, timing the floating lanterns and planning where to launch them so they float right over the crowd. For the audience members and the performers, this is a site to see.

On the flip side of the extra casual festivals around the UK during the summer, numerous wedding planners have become repeat customers, buying up large quantities of white traditional lanterns for weddings year round but especially in the busy wedding season the spring presents. For couples looking for a unique way to celebrate their love, sky lanterns cannot be beat. They offer guests something different and memorable as well as allowing the guests a way to send their well wishes for the lucky couple into the heavens in an east meets west manner that is appropriate for any couple getting married.  On a side note, wedding planners always ask for us to throw in sharpie markers and disposable LED Tea Lights when planning these events and when ordering online, it is a matter of a couple clicks to add them to any sky lantern order.

More Uses for Water Lanterns

Ignoring the pun for a moment, the sky is the limit with Chinese Hanging Lanterns . They are easy to use and beautiful to watch. They can inspire art, both through the stunning visual impact of a large number launched at once to an artist carefully painting a single lantern all the while having a vision of what it will look like later while illuminated. Sky lanterns can engage the other side of the brain as well, by offering students a chance to see science lessons acted out outside of the classroom. Taking some time from a school day to apply science can inspire children and encourage them to pursue a future in a science field.

With one’s imagination intact, they can surely come up with even more creative uses for traditional sky lanterns. would love to know how you have used sky lanterns. Leave a comment on this blog post so we can see what truly creative ways sky lanterns have been used.
