She buys a Chinese paper lantern to put over the uncovered, glaring light bulb to soften the light. There is some symbolism in wanting to calm harsh light which may expose the truth of everything around Blanche. Blanche does not want many of her faults emphasized, so she tries to soften everything around her.
