Wishing upon a star is fine and dandy but the twinkly little blighters are usually obscured by clouds. And that's a shame because starry skies always add a touch of magic to outdoor events, especially weddings.
So how do you add an element of wonder to evening do's and illuminate the night sky without forking out thousands on fireworks? No, you don't get guests to scribble their names in the dark with sparklers. You buy some jaw-droppingly gracious Sky Lanterns.
These enchanting paper blimps are guaranteed to become the talking point of any evening soiree because they climb gently into the night sky like mini hot air balloons. Simply light the special wax fuel cell, wait for a flame to form, make a wish and watch in wonder as your biodegradable lantern gradually ascends to the heavens, glowing as it rises. You can even personalise your lantern with wishes, thoughts or messages of love using a marker pen: 'Thanks for the wedding, dad. The bill's in the post.'
10 x Lanterns
Each flame-retardant Sky Lantern can glow for as long as 20 minutes, travelling for miles and rising up to 1500 metres. For a truly magical effect, why not get a group of friends to light several Sky Lanterns simultaneously? With ten lanterns per box it's easy and the effect is so breathtaking it's not unlike watching Close Encounters and a Pink Floyd concert simultaneously. We guarantee guests will be blown away.

Light the wick...
Set it free!
Off the scale in terms of ooh-aah-factor, Sky Lanterns are ideal for countless night time events and they're infinitely more original than noisy fireworks. So what are you waiting for? Make a wish.
