I love these outdoor lanterns, My deck is in a dark area of the yard and they give off a warm glow at night, just enough so you can look out over the deck and stairs. The only thing they could improve on is to make them connect end to end. But I will definately buy more again next year if I need replacements.
These lanterns are cute and fun. They are a little more brightly colored than I expected, and are covered with plastic mesh and not paper, but they are still nice-looking and a decent value for the money (especially since I got mine on sale).
