      My Fi and I showed his mother  a picture of a recption area that had used these laterns and she hated them.  She likes these lights that the decor company we are working but she isn't paying the $800 just for the lights.  Now what, use these knowing she hates them?  UGH!

            Where did you get your lanters and its the exact colour I need. Also, where did you get your batteries and lights? Ebay?

            I really only think you need 2 lights, not 3. And maybe only 1 for 8" or 10" lanterns.

                      For the Canadian girls, I just ordered 100 LED lights and 25 of the 3V batteries from dealextreme.com for under $20. I've ordered from them before and it usually takes a few weeks to get stuff from China but no complaints. Here's the links to the items I ordered:

                       

                      Lights

                      Batteries

                       

                      https://www.dealextr...ls.dx/sku.34712

                       

                      Once I receive everything I'll let you know how it all worked out.
