original paper Valentine's decor

February means LOVE AMOUR AMOR. So we’ve created a very special Valentine’s decor using red and pink paper lanterns and pompoms to create a super pretty party wall. Very easy to design, it would also be great as a party backdrop or over a bridal or baby shower buffet. Pair this with a rose gold LOVE balloon and everybody will want to say “I love you!”.

Shop all the paper lanterns for this wall on Under The Paper Lantern.

This is what you need to design the paper lanterns “wall”

– 1 piece of white cardboard size 30”x 43” – you can go for a smaller piece and adjust the number of lanterns accordingly.

– tape (washi tape will be also fine if you create your décor just a couple of hours ahead – for a long lasting piece, it’s better to use regular tape), string to hang the paper lanterns and accordion paper lanterns (for pompoms and honeycomb balls you can use their included string)

– 3 honeycomb balls 12cm/ 5’’
– 3 honeycomb balls 20cm / 8’’
– 12 paper pompoms 25cm / 10’’
– 8 accordion paper lanterns  20cm /8’’
– 6 paper lanterns 15cm / 6’’

Tape each lantern and pom all around the frame,  hiding as much white as possible. Then fill in the inside of the frame making sure lanterns and pompoms are really tightly arranged so that they cover the whole space.

With at all that being said, we LOVE just love what Coralie did with these little groups againt the stark white of the wedding tent. She made sure to place a little fun above but let the tables be the focal point for the reception.

Want a grouping that you can use over and over, no matter the occasion? This group is your best friend. Simple and joyful, its perfect for a wedding, baby shower, summer brunch (yeah we said summer). Even when the sun sets and the tables are lit with candles these colors really set the tone. Trust us, we are obsessed for a good reason.



We used our colors shell pink and vintage rose for the accordion lanterns, grey little house for the lanterns, and white for the eyelet lanterns.

Here we have vintage rose elements, cumulus grey, shell pinks and some lovely whites to round it all out.



Come and get our cute paper lanterns.

Oh we cant resist a bad/good pun. Sorry/not sorry. This year we’re celebrating spring a little bit early (wishful thinking). We thought, why not hang some paper lanterns and set a colorful breakfast table for 2? Surprise your little sweeties with this first thing in the morning and they can’t help but have a great day.

To create a similar pastel paper lanterns grouping, we used 4 pieces of fishing line and hung accordion lanterns in sizes 8” and 11.5”, as well as paper lanterns in 14” and 20”, some eyelets.
Our tip: to fix fishing line to the ceiling and use everything you can in the room (ie a hook on your window frame). Or you can also nail little picture hooks at the tops of your walls or self adhesive hooks if you are renting.

Welcome to little Marius’ nursery. A simple grouping of lanterns in soft tones of sugar blue, Latte and white. We love how the blue is a nod to Marius, while the neutral colors couple well with the adorable Moose head and the wood on the frames of the prints.

With the perfect mix of modern lines and fun textures this is how to decorate a birthday party when your interior is already so stylish and full of character. Check out what one of our favorite clients did for her birthday celebration in a beautiful apartment in Stockholm.
She created a paper lantern chandelier and hung it from the ceiling and extended it to stick to the wall, and few paper lanterns, honeycomb balls and accordion paper lanterns simply put on the floor… Stylish, contemporary and best of all, FUN!
