Lighting is one of the most cost effective ways to transform a space and enhance the ambience of your event. Everything (and everyone!) looks better in the right light, so I love incorporating it into my designs. 

Even if your budget won’t stretch to a full-on professional lighting rig, there are plenty of simpler options to choose from. Take the humble lantern, for example. From the classic storm lantern to modern paper versions, there is a reason they have stuck with us for hundreds of years - they are timeless! 

Lanterns are so versatile, you’ll be hard pushed to find an event that doesn’t make use of them. Spot them at festivals, weddings, garden parties, corporate dinners and even in photo backdrops. I would even go as far as to say they are a must-have item. 

This week, Clownfish took delivery of some beautiful gold and glass lanterns. I’ll use them simply on their own or dress them with flowers and foliage to create eye-catching centrepieces, mark out pathways, enhance a photo backdrop or as displays for product launches. They will also add some subtle glamour to our Christmas parties this year.
