Lanterns?

Here is the Venue room:


Here is the Venue photo 458216-1


How many lanterns?  I am thinking of getting the 24" ones, in Pink and Green.  We are getting a little bit of draping just so its not ceiling AND lanterns, it will soften it alittle bit.  But anyway, how many do you think?

That would look great but it is hard to say. How big is the room?

I'm wondering this same thing, so I'm interested in the answers you get.

9' high ceilings aren't very high,.. you may want to get the 18-20" lanterns, not 24".. they'll take up too much space.  I'd do something like 30-40 lanterns, depending on how "dense" you want them.

trust me, that size of lantern is a lot bigger than expected... I bought 18" ones, and they're HUGE... they look good in the big patio pavilion, but the ceilings/rafters are 10+' high...

I will take one tonight when i get home and post it here... !!  And put it next to something to compare size... hmmmm...  I'd say you could get away with a few 20".. but mostly 16-18", just based on the ceiling.  :)

you just have to hang them accordingly... hang them lower to make them appear larger, higher to make them smaller, kwim?  Plus the smaller ones are MUCH cheaper.

I don't think your venue has high enough ceilings to have lanterns.. :( it might seem cramped

I have a design meeting on the 16th with my Venue so maybe I will order a couple and hang them or place them up there to see what it would look like.

yeah definitely take some there and see what looks good.. we did that and we were surprised at the size of the place and how many lanterns we'd need :)

asianideas is where I got mine.. they are partners/same company as paperlanternstore!


 


I have 34 lanterns total..... 10 for inside and 24 for the outside patio area... the inside lanterns are going over the dance floor, so an area of about 10'x10' or so...


The outside ones are going in a covered patio area type thing.. lol.. it's about 50'x30'ish.  But we're not doing dense lanterns.. here's a pic of that patio:

Agree with GTG


24' lanterns would be TOO big especially for the height of your venue, maybe go with others between 16'-20'


we bought 12' and 16' laterns for my parents vow renewal and the 16' is fairly large.


maybe check out ebay


Pink


Green


others
