Tin Lanterns

Keep a stash of lanterns on hand for twilight parties. Line your driveway, front stoop, deck, or table tops with a row of lanterns for easy but dramatic lighting. The handles make it easy to suspend from tree branches using twine cording or ribbons for a dressier look.

Tip: Keep a long-neck butane torch handy to light dozens or lanterns in minutes.
