Besides the hanging lanterns found strung everywhere during Illumination Night on Martha’s Vineyard in the Camp Grounds, stenciled paper lanterns are also commonly seen lighting walkways up to the gingerbread cottages

    Paper shopping bags with candles in them? Do you have any wide angle shots of the entire area(s)? Certainly is festive, Phil! :-)

    although one can make these lanterns as you describe , but these are made especially for this purpose and have the stencils cut out to make them special…I’ll look for a wide angle view among those images…

    It always amazes me that these paper lanterns don’t catch fire!! These are particularly pretty ones, especially the first three, and so nicely arranged. A lovely shot – full of light and colour
