I have always had a crush on candles.
I think you might have guessed that… and I have always loved lanterns.
Chinese ones in particular, they are so portable.. like here…
I tied them up, with string, in our plane trees one evening and I think they added that extra piece of ambience…
For parties I go crazy with the lanterns in the garden… paper ones, small glass jars… any that I can get my hands on.
When the sun sets and the tea lights start flickering, the garden becomes a magical place.
I have always thought that candles are the best, prettiest and most effective way to decorate… xv
