The history of the solar lantern

Lanterns are first mentioned in written documents by Theopompus, a poet from ancient Greece. In ancient China the earliest lanterns were made from paper or silk with a candle or fireflies inside used to decorate and create atmosphere at festivals and celebrations. Our solar lanterns here at Festive Lights are perfect for a garden party or BBQ in summer, and are much sturdier and safer than those of the past. They are much easier to use than catching a jar full of fireflies too!

You don’t need wiring or leads to main supply with solar lights, nor do you have to worry about candles blowing out in the wind so they are very practical. If your hosting an outdoor party, wedding or event these will add a lovely ambience especially as the night draws in and these solar lanterns glow.
