Interrupting Christmas For Wedding Decor

Last night I went to do some Christmas shopping and ran into a bit of a snag. Found a bunch of lanterns that would be so perfect for the wedding table decorations. These two big lanterns I keep imagining at the guest book table which would be the first thing people see when they turn the corner from the path into the venue.

I had planned to go with metal lanterns or white lanterns but when I saw all these lanterns together I felt myself making a decision. I also found nine of these lanterns below that I imagine on the long rectangle tables. As much as I like them, now I'm thinking I don't have enough to do what I envisioned because I would probably need at least two per table. I actually do have 4 sets that match, but then that only covers 4 tables. Even if I did just one per table and then added some other options that would still only cover 9 tables. So I have some thinking to do.

I found these at TJMaxx and I ran to three other nearby HomeGoods stores hoping to find more but had no luck. On a lark, tomorrow I am going to run to a few TJMaxx shops around town and see if they have any more of these.

These just have so much more charm than the very simple metal ones I had been looking at that actually cost more than these. So we'll see what happens with these. From a budget perspective I wish these beauties would've found me after Christmas, but you can never know when some great find will find you.

Update. I took back the larger of the small lanterns that you can see in the back and bought more of the more refined, delicate lanterns. I found a bunch more and now should have enough for two for each long table. Very good and very happy.
