Golden Birthday Wishes

Ever wonder when a wish will come true?

This past Sunday was a magical day spent with friends enjoying a full day of relaxation, lots of champagne and amazing spa classes and treatments.

We ended the day enjoying a late dinner fireside by the Pacific Ocean.  As we enjoyed our surroundings, out of the black night came this beautiful hot pink golden lantern floating up towards the sky over our heads… then came another – then another.

They were Wish Lanterns.  It was so dark we could not see where they were coming from….but we were mesmerized by their beauty.

Traditionally used in Asia for celebrations and festivals, the launch of a Wish Lantern symbolizes the release of worries and problems.   Wish Lanterns are biodegradable, non-flammable and easy to use. They create this amazing visual effect that just lite up smiles on everyone that witness them last night.

How fun would these lanterns be at your next birthday?  They would also be so fun at a family campout over the lake!

Wish lanterns can be purchased online and range from $5-$150 depending on quantity and quality. They are simple to use…just light the fuel cell, wait for the lanterns to fill up with hot air and then let go. You and your guests will gaze in awe as the Wish Lanterns float up into the night sky. Using the power of fire, the Wish Lantern will be in the air for about 12 minutes and go up over a mile in the air.  The lantern is only airborne for as long as the flame stays alight, after which the lantern sinks back to the ground.

My girlfriend said “Hurry Lori….Make a Birthday Wish!  Little did they know…it already came true.
