Hopefully Team GB will have lots to celebrate this year at the London Olympics? Or perhaps you're hosting your very own Diamond Jubilee celebration. whatever the occasion turn your event into a talking point with these patriotic, Union Jack designed sky lanterns. Each lantern is a miniature hot air balloon that inflates with the heat from a tea light within about 20 seconds of being lit before floating silently and serenely into the sky. Sky lanterns date back hundreds of years and in ancient Asian customers a wish is made as the lantern is released. Anyone who is lucky enough to have witnessed an Asian celebration where these lanterns are released will know just how enchanting the effect is. When in comes to sky lanterns is definitely a case of 'the more the merrier' and one is rarely enough - they can make an elegant and peaceful alternative to fireworks at any celebration and you can be sure all guests will want to join in the fun, the more released together, the more entrancing the effect. They drift up to 1500 metres high, staying alight for up to 20 minutes. Made from biodegradable, fire-retardant (mulberry) paper, the lanterns burn out in the sky before drifting harmlessly back to earth. However, please take note of the usage advice; it is important they are only used by responsible adults and should not be released in windy conditions, anywhere there are overhead trees or power cables, or within five miles of an airport.
