Celebrate with sky lanterns & sparklers

Recently a friend took the oath to become a citizen of our fine nation. The majority of his family had already done it and he had lived and worked here for many years on his green card. I figured an occasion such as this could not go uncelebrated or, at the very least, unacknowledged.

I figured there wasn’t a “Congratulations on your citizenship” card so I made a cute little card to acknowledge the day. Funny thing is I’ve been thinking about it since that day and, as if to mock me, I came across a card in my stash that had art deco reproductions of the Statue of Liberty created by a well-known artist and “Congratulations!” on the inside. Go figure, huh? That card would have been perfect and guess what I remembered would go perfectly with the artsy card? Sparklers, of course.

I’ve told you before about Sparklers Depot, the online retailer that sells sparklers and sky lanterns. It would have been awesome to hand him a handful of lit sparklers in addition to the card. Or, if I wanted to take it up another level then I could have stood outside and released American Flag sky lanterns. That would have been picture perfect.

As you can see, I’m really determined to think of every possible occasion where the celebration can include sky lanterns and sparklers. Winking smile
