Lanterns add so much warmth to your home decor. They are a great staple piece to change with each season and a fun way to get creative!
Whether you already have a lantern or would like to select one of ours, we are happy to help you trim out your lanterns for the holidays with a few of your favorite things! We can take you step by step through selecting the greenery base, seasonal ingredients, and fabulous ribbons! Whether you are a decorating pro or starting on your first home, we can help you make the perfect lantern for you! You can keep it simple or go all out. It's all a matter of personal style. Here are couple things we like to think about when styling a lantern:
Where will your lantern will go in your home?
What colors or theme would you like to use?
What is the core pieces to go inside the lantern? - candle, ornament, figure (Santa or snowman!)
What elements would help tell the rest of the story?
A flameless candles are also a great way to bring your lanterns to life! Brighten up a dark corner and create a calming and peaceful atmosphere. Sometimes adding a simple candle ring is all you need to soften and style the lantern. We carry many different sizes and styles from simple pine to winter leaves, berries, and pine cones.
Here are a couple of theme ideas to tap into your imagination! I call this idea "Winter Snow". Create a cold snowy, winter look by adding a swag to a lantern layered in snowflakes and icy branches next to a snowman with red, green, and white color palette. Add a glowing snow orb or candle to finish the look. Or how about "Santa's Workshop". Add your favorite Santa to a lantern and dress with jingle bells and tiny presents to celebrate the magic of Christmas!
We would love to see you at Petals & Potpourri and together we can create a look you and your family will enjoy for years!
Wishing you inspiration,
