IKEA Rotera Lanterns

We've seen these workhorses everywhere, from fancy restaurants to outdoor homes. We've bought many ourselves and include them in our Top 10: Party Lighting Ideas.

Rotera metal and glass lanterns are a simple, classic design that keep your tea lights bright, even in a high wind and/or a little rain. Set them on the ground or hang them on a fence or from a wire.

Only $5 each, they now come in 7 colors, but we still favor the galvanized finish.
