I want to hang paper lanterns over the dance floor. There will be a 6x6 tent covering the whole dance floor area. If it were up to me, it would look like this
Buuuut my wallet says otherwise so there will be much less. I'd still like to achieve a somewhat clustered or at least a well spaced out look but I have no idea how many lanterns that requires. My venue lady isn't much help either because she's never done it before. I'd like lanterns in purple, red, pink and white and in various sizes. Here are other looks we like:
However this is a look we want to AVOID:
The lanterns are so spaced out that IMO it's just not working.
So the question is, how many lanterns are enough? What sizes look best? If getting different colors, how many of each? Also how many of each size?
