Pin-spiration: Paper Lanterns for the nursery

Pinterest has emerged as an invaluable tool for easy organization of the decorative elements of your nursery, party planning, and baby registry lists. We have pinboards filled with our favorite nursery trends, DIY nursery decor, nursery themes and color palettes, paint colors, furniture trends, baby shower ideas, baby registry inspiration, and so much more. The paper lantern trend has picked up steam and cannot be missed when perusing Pinterest for nursery inspiration.

Paper lanterns are an affordable and adorable alternative to a traditional mobile in your baby’s room. Strung up in a cluster above the crib, changing table, or glider, colorful paper lanterns make a big impact as nursery decor and a fun focal point for your new baby.

We love the idea of infusing your room with strong pops of color by way of affordable paper lanterns. Not only are they easy on the wallet, they are an unexpected and whimsical surprise in the nursery. You may not want to commit to (Pantone color of the year) tangerine on your walls as a paint color, but a soft gray wall with paper lanterns in shades of tangerine can infuse your room with color without committing to it long-term (saving yourself from re-painting)…and for under $10 you can add in Turquoise, Pink, Grassy Green, or whatever color matches you decor.

Paper lanterns also make festive and incredibly versatile party decor. Add a little embellishment (or in some cases a lot) and your lanterns can transform into a beloved character or centerpiece for your birthday party or shower.
