Paper Lanterns

We did a little celebrating last weekend for our daughter's birthday - a fancy tea party!  She had a delightful time with her fancy little friends, and of course I had a delightful time decorating for it. 
I wanted to share with you these paper lanterns that were used at the party.  I bought them here after seeing them used in a Romantic Homes magazine wedding feature. 


They floated above our hammock, where the little girls loved to swing...


After the party, I couldn't resist keeping them in our dining room for a little while...

I strung my pink crepe paper flowers on to each lantern as a pretty touch.



They blend well with fresh roses from the garden...

Sharing these pink pretties with Beverly's Pink Saturday, and the white lanterns with White Wednesday next week.  Enjoy your weekends!

Very cute Susan!
I bet the girls had fun at this lovely party.

I was thinking of getting some lanterns to dangle over B's new bath tub decor. Could be super fun like bubbles floating above him.

I adore the eyelette one... where did you find it? I've never seen one like that before. I made a ton of those paper posies for a shower recently... they took me hours and hours!
