(Symbolism) I thought these paper lanterns were a symbol in a Streetcar Named Desire, because Blanche uses Chinese lanterns to hide/cover up her face or to not show her age. She was in a way almost afraid of aging, probably because she married so young so she still acts/feels that she is 16, but her reflection proves otherwise.

And just when you thought paper Chinese lanterns were a cheap and cheerful decorating option, Hermes came to the party.
