Indoor Decorating With Paper Lanterns

{images a la pinterest}

The hubby and I are moving into our first home in a month and a half, and I’ve been busy dreaming up inexpensive ideas to fill all of the space.  Moving from a 2/1 apartment, to a full-sized home with pool and driveway leaves quite a bit of blank space.  I’ve loved paper lanterns since my wedding planning days – Martha Stewart taught brides how to string lanterns and pom poms across wedding tents and ceremony sites with panache.  But decorating with lanterns in the home – loving it.

Luna Bazaar sells a gorgeous variety of paper lanterns in every shape, color, and style.  I’m personally smitten with the parasols and star lanterns.
