Advent, Advent, a little light is burning…. We all know this verse! Yes, it shines and shines everywhere during Advent. But not only the candles on the Advent wreath spread the charm of the coming festival. These are combined with tealights, LED fairy lights and lanterns of all kinds. The lanterns have always been a popular decorative element that celebrates its high season, especially in winter. They are undoubtedly part of every stylish Christmas decoration, but they can be used well all year round. Lanterns come in different sizes, colors and designs, they are made from different materials or you can make them yourself. That makes them universal, so that they fit perfectly into almost every decoration concept. What we love about these chandeliers is that they can be used effectively both indoors and outdoors. Do they appear to you as a versatile and indispensable decoration? Quite right, because that’s exactly what they are! Especially at Christmas time!

 To create a cozy feel-good atmosphere in your four walls during the holidays, you need lanterns in the Christmas decorations. These come in a wide variety of sizes and patterns so you can play with them. For example, arrange some lanterns on the windowsill or on the mantelpiece and you can expect a great visual effect in the evening. Even finely patterned lanterns cast spectacular shadows on the wall in the evening and let young and old dream of something wonderful. In principle, you can illuminate the lanterns as you wish, with candles, tea lights or LEDs. The last variant is actually the safest, because with LED lighting you avoid any possible fire hazard. So make sure you have a fire-proof Christmas decoration!
