Entry #1889, November 30, 2012

Christmas lanterns don’t just provide additional attraction but also a lovely illumination on the spot. It is something that you can hang on your patio, front door or any place at home. You can also have it placed in your garden as decorative lighting fixtures that will enhance the whole garden area.

You just have to match them with your theme.

Here are some of the great ideas that you can do to illuminate your holiday home using lanterns:

Group your holiday lanterns in your entryway

This idea is probably the easiest and the quickest way to do the trick. Your guests will never fail to spot this decorative idea as they get inside. Complete your design by combining them with gifts, stockings, canes, and other holiday decors. An old bench or coffee table can furnish your lanterns in place.

Try a color scheme

Aside from grouping your holiday lanterns according to designs, you can also do a color scheme. This is perfect if you don’t really have similar lantern designs. The color scheme will make it look perfect especially when you have it arranged creatively or even in random order. You will be amazed with how the lanterns look as soon as you turn on the lights.

Decorating your lanterns with various holiday items can certainly provide an elegant and brilliant look. You can decorate your lanterns with Christmas balls, candle, foliage, ribbons and other colorful items for your lantern arrangement.

You can always mix and match any holiday items available at home. Just don’t have it overly done with decorative objects. Keep it simple and it will show its natural style and elegance.
