These Fabric Lanterns Could Be the New Bunting!

With Chelsea Flower show in full swing, the sun out and a lazy bank holiday on the way we couldn’t resist these gorgeous fabric lanterns from Melly and Me….

String them up along fairy lights for a truly magical effect – those ones with the battery pack at the end (they sell them in our local Poundstretchers quite cheaply) and they are perfect for the garden.

Who knows, they might become the new bunting!
