Nautical Lanterns Will Light Your Way

Nautical Lanterns Are Useful and Beautiful!

I love nautical design! Whether it’s bedding, art work or home decor, like the nautical lanterns I’m featuring here.

Nautical decor gives a feeling of the sea, which reminds one of soothing water flowing, crashing waves, seagulls singing and other lovely forces of nature. It’s tranquil and inviting.

The nice thing about these lanterns is that they can be used indoors and outdoors (in most instances). They are perfect for home or the office, and they make great gifts.

Display one on a bookshelf, one on your desk and one on your bedroom dresser. They are versatile and add beauty to any room in which you place them.

Pretty Ivory Lantern

The ivory lantern shown here looks so pretty with a votive candle in it. Light it in the evening to add a romantic ambiance to the room or to give off a soft glow while you relax and watch your favorite movie.

You could also place a few of these on your outdoor patio to give off lighting for a party or gathering of friends and family.

This nautical lantern would also make beautiful decoration for a wedding reception or bridal shower, too! As well as the perfect wedding or anniversary gift.

Electric or Oil Lanterns

Electric or oil lanterns are other options besides candle holder models. The electric ones really give off great light and can be used in place of a table lamp in any room of your home.

The oil ones are great when you want to save electricity or to use when your power goes out. You can also easily take these camping with you for light in your tent or around your camping site.

V&O Centennial Gold Trim Oil Lantern

This oil lantern is available in black (shown), green and red. It has a bit of a nautical look, and will go well with that theme. Use it as decoration or to light any room.


Oil lamps can be dangerous if knocked over. The oil can spill out and the flame can spread quickly. As with candle lanterns, you should always monitor use of your oil lanterns.

I Love This One!

This design is so unique. I just absolutely love it!!! Can’t you imagine these place on your outdoor tables during a party? Or how about at your wedding reception or for a graduation party?

There are so many options for these lovely round lanterns. They also look antique, which to me makes them even more appealing and attractive.

These would definitely be my nautical lanterns of choice! Place a votive in the glass holder and let these light your event or add romance to your home!

Wedding Decorations

If you are planning on having a beach wedding or nautical themed wedding, consider candle lanterns as part of your decorations.

They look lovely on guest tables, as well as the gift table and cake table. You can hang them from their hooks, too, as well as placing them on tables.

If you light them, they give off a nice glow that adds beauty to your wedding atmosphere. You really can’t go wrong when decorating with nautical candle lanterns!
