My FI saw this and thought it was cute... we love the idea of releasing sky lanterns (like in the movie Tangled) from the lawn out over the ocean (well, Long Island sound, but yeah) at the end of the night.
They're not that expensive, and you only need 1 per every 2 adults (kids can 'help' their parents but it's mostly an adult thing as you need to light it and hold it so you don't get burned). It's not much more dangerous than sparklers, and I thought it was a very cool idea - send your wishes out into the world, ya know?
The ones I'd buy are biodegradable - they're made out of rice paper and twine so they break down very easily and won't harm animals or sea creatures.
Is this too cheesy? How would you suggest announcing it and running it? I'm happy for all feedback!
