Faery Lanterns with Clues
In addition to our Faery Gardens lanterns also played a part as table top decorations and clue containers. We loved the idea of lanterns but didn’t want boxers ransacking the lanterns looking for boxes contained inside because of their fragile nature so we used the lanterns as clue holders instead. Kelly (Pixie Dust Gal) printed clues and notes that no box was contained that led the boxers to the boxes that were hidden away from the shelter. Each lantern had a rock positioned next to it that the boxer was instructed to take with them when locating the box. That prevented other boxers from looking for the box until the rock had returned and also helped with slack boxing issues. This really worked well so not too many people were looking for the same box at the same time and coming up empty handed. I have also included a picture of one of the table tops boxes that was decorated and also the terrarium that held a clue at the event too. In total we had 4 lantern clues and boxes to find.
