Happy New Year!

2011 was certainly my best year to date so I was looking forward to ringing in 2012 with some great friends - two of who got married this year and two of who got engaged. 2011 was a big year for all! We went up to Okemo to celebrate and despite the lack of snow we still had a wonderful time.

My favorite part of New Years Eve was watching the ball drop on our iPhone bundled up around a fire pit and setting off these wonderful 'Wish Lanterns'.

I had never seen these lanterns before and they were the perfect way to send 2011 off in style. Make a wish, light the lantern, wait for it to fill with hot air and then off it sails. Sending your wish clear into 2012! These lanterns do have open flames so be very careful where you set them flying, based on the wind and the weather their flight pattern can be pretty erratic. We had a few "oh god" moments but all was safe. 

Available as individual lanterns or sets, these are a beautiful touch for a special event. 

Happy New Year!
