Our customer service team spend a part of every working day answering questions either emailed or called in about a number of different questions. One question they have requested a blog on is whether we recommend tethering wish lanterns.
Wish Lanterns when used normally follow the sequence below
- Remove from packaging and unwrap your wish lantern. Gently pull the paper into the shape of a mini hot air balloon
- Hold the bamboo ring on the bottom of the lantern and flange the fuel cell material so that air can get at all parts of the fuel cell
- While holding the rice paper, light the fuel cell and let the lantern gradually fill with hot air.
- Once filled with hot air, hold onto the bamboo ring. Lift the wish lantern above your head and let go when you feel it pulling upwards.
Once you have let go of your lantern it will ride gently into the night sky and after ten/fifteen minutes the fuel cell will start to extinguish. When there are no more flames the Wish Lantern will gently descend and land.
It is important to understand how our wish lanterns work, and unfortunately tying them with string is only going to have a time-limited effect (15 minutes at max). Wish lantern stock a range of other products such as our Bio Dove Balloons or Wish Stars that are more suited to being attached to fixtures around your party.
