Red Paper Lanterns
Great addition to festivities!
Lanterns are well made and an excellent value. The added so much to my Chinese New Year festivities.

I bought these for a Chinese New Year celebration. The lantern itself is very pretty and in good shape. But the metal frames were of the wrong measurements. The two nobs at the top were supposed to fit into the two little rings on top of the lantern. But the frames were a little too long and the width at the top were a little too narrow for the two nobs to stay inside the rings. We were able to bend the nobs using pliers for them to stay inside the rings for 3 of the 6 lanterns. But the other 3 were only able to have one nob fitting in one ring leaving the other nob sticking out above the rim of the lantern top. In the process of trying to make the nobs stay inside the rings, they ended up poking holes in the laterns. Very frustrating. Love the lanterns but hate the frames. I also bought two white ones with dragon design. The frames fit perfictly without much effort. It's beyond me to think that the factories making those red lanterns wouldn't test the assembly beforehand. It only takes one test to know that the measurements are all wrong so they can make adjustment before mass producing them.

Purchased as decorations to use at my day spa. The red lanterns go really well with the holly leaf lanterns and I'll be able to use them during the Valentine's Day "season."
