decorating a gazebo with paper lanterns

Recommended Posts

Nope, no lights /c its a day time ceremony.

 

The tissue flowers actually don't take up much space at all. a pack of 7 flowers is only an inch thick. I bought the pre-cut kit but i went on martha stewart.com and found DIY instuctions that would save me some $$$. When i do a trial run i'll post pics

Any thoughtshuh.gif

We did these for my grandparents anniversary. It took FOREVER to do and the paper rips really easy. Give yourself plenty of time to do them. The overall affect is really pretty though. I had to go back and reform some of them because some of the people helping weren't as picky as me and they ended up lopsided.

FYI- you can every easily make them too. Just fold 5-6 sheets of paper according style and tie in the middle. Cut the ends either rounded or in a point. Pull apart to form.

I have seen paper lanterns hung just for some color. I think they still look pretty unlit.

When you used these, how did you hang them? I'm thinking of using ribbons.
Luckily my mother and her best friend are coming and they are super crafty and perfectionist so I'm leaving this in their hands! My very first idea was do hanging flowers, similiar to this picture, but then i thought the resort might not hang them the way i want them...

It looked really good too. We got lots of compliements. Unfortunately the place where they held the party had really ugly floors. This totally drew the eye away from it.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
