Lovely Lanterns

I am in love with lanterns. All kinds: tall, short, wide, thin. Love them, and I think they will do splendidly in the Carriage House reception space. There are four rusty hooks from which we can hang a lantern, the white carriage rail in the dance hall space, and even sit them on the reception tables themselves. With the help of Somer's keen internet-savvy eye, we've found quite a bit of these lanterns. Here are the ones I'm most in love with. Which do you like the most? Which do you think will go best in our little Carriage House? I'd love your thoughts.

I like the idea of using a mixture of big metal pane lanterns (esp. to hang on hooks) with clusters of the small round glass lanterns (2nd pic). Or just a slew of different types of lanterns (all kinds) scattered all over in little groupings etc.

Excellent! I like that idea, too--big metal paned lanterns on the four hooks, maybe two on the carriage rail, and the glass lanterns on the tables. I wrote the women who keeps the blog (the one where I stole the 2nd pic from), and asked her where she found these adorable glass bauble type lanterns. They are simply beautiful.

The second one looks a lot like what I would expect in Virginia's colonial days, or shortly thereafter. So, I like that one. You know me and history... and if not, ask Chris because I know he does. :)
