They're basically a large paper (fireproof) lantern with a wick suspended beneath them. You light the wick (outside of course), and in about thirty seconds they are filled with hot air from the flame and are ready to sail majestically up to 1000 feet into the night sky. Originally thought up by the Chinese over 2000 years ago as a warning signal, paper lanterns gradually became a part of festival and ceremonial practices across the Far East. Now we can enjoy them too, and whether you're planning on using them for a wedding, a party, or just because they're beautiful, there's no doubt they'll bring a certain spark to any event. Who knows where they may end up?

Quite fiddly to use but very impressive once they are up in the air
These were so good for the purpose we wanted, but a little difficult to light in outdoors maybe included safety lighters in pack?
The Flying Lanterns were for a special birthday celebration. They were larger than I anticipated which was a nice surprise and they were well boxed and packaged. Excellent buy will definitely buy more.
These Flying Lanterns are really beautiful and serene. They capped off a very special evening.
Fantastic we bought them as a present for my daughter's friend's 16th Birthday and she loved them will be buying them for my daughter's birthday too!
Just spent the weekend at the beach (it's been really sunny this weekend), and I had 2 packs of the Flying Lanterns with me. Just as the sun was setting we set about letting these bad boys off into the distance. Was brilliant to watch them slowly float off to the horizon. Perfect addition for any night time gathering!
I would say that these Flying Lanterns are the perfect way to end an evening - or start one for that matter! I imagined when I bought it that the fire would hit the paper and end in a sooty disaster! I was wrong, they just float away and look great, especially if you buy more for your friends.
My wife loved flying lanterns. Unfortunately, she died last month and as a tribute, the family are launching a fleet of lanterns in her memory. She would have loved it!
Outstanding service with a personal touch. I am over the moon with my purchase and will definitely be coming here again. Thank you so much!! :0)
There's something very magical about watching these lanterns dissapear higher and higher into the dark night. Well worth an impulse buy!
Gorgeous and the perfect end to our outdoor wedding reception - but being so large they took quite a while to 'heat up' so couldn't get all 30 int he air simultaneously. Need 2 people per lantern ideally. Well worth the effort and great value!
Received the lanterns very quickly and immediately launched one to celebrate the start of the weekend - very sad people! We intend to use the rest for a birthday celebration - they look amazing when you use several at one time with your wshes and messages written on each - and you watch a procession of lanterns floating off into the night sky....
I bought these as part of my Mum's 75th birthday surprise. We gave one out per 2 people so they could do their own and then we just watched them in amazement go floating upwards. My Mum and some of the shall we say, more elderly amongst us had never seen anything like it and were literally gobsmacked. I bought an extra box as they were on offer for another party later in the year but everyone wanted to buy them off me when they had seen them in action!! DO buy them - they are brilliant and I don't think they are expensive when you get such a fantastic reaction from friends and family. BUY NOW!!
Just the thing for a multi-generation family party if there's a field or a big garden around. There's all the excitement of lighting the first one, and then the thrill of watching it take off and float away into the sky. At dusk there could be nothing more magical than a whole host of flying lanterns rising gently into the heavens.
The flying lantern is such a simple idea, but such a wonderful experience. The height they fly to and the time they last is incredible.
I bought a Valentines 2 pack of hearts but we couldn't wait and set one off the night before with our in-laws in Rubgy watching. Everyone was amazed and my wife gave me a big cuddle and kiss as a thankyou. The last we saw of it was dissapearing into the clouds in the distance. BRILL. I'm now going to order a large pack just for fun.
We decided to purchase these after we had seen some on bonfire night. They last a long time and can be seen for a considerable distance. We set some off at Christmas. The adults and children alike all enjoed them. I would recommend this product. Before use make sure you know the wind direction so that you can get the maximum benefit from them.
I have bought these before from other sites , always enjoy them . However this is the cheapest price I have ever bought them for . Very happy
i have tried them in the past and what a fantastic way to end the perfect day. thats why i have brought these for my wedding! everyone can write a message and we can let them off. its also a nice way to remember those who aren't with us. a little tricky to let off sometimes but a still night works wonders! i cant wait!!
We flew some of those lanterns with friends on New Year's Eve and thought they were great (We had to find a spot sheltered from the wind to fly them successfully). They are pretty and fun and I wanted to have some at hand for future birthday celebrations. They were half price so bought 2 packs of ten. Thank you 'I Want One Of Those' for a great price and prompt delivery.
