This week we have been looking at ways to use pom poms to decorate a venue. The phrase ‘the more the better’ definitely seems to apply when using pom poms and grouping them together can really make a statement backdrop. If you are decorating your own marquee, barn or similar type venue take a look at the rest of our board in Pinterest for more inspiration, but for now here is just a taster of what is possible.

If you want to have a go at making your own paper pom poms they are really easy – just follow the instructions here from Martha Stewart. To give you an idea of the time involved you can make around 5/6 per hour.

Or if you really don’t want to go to the effort of making your own you can buy them online.  Paper Poms UK are a specialist vendor who sell the poms on Etsy. Prices start from £2 for a 3″ or 4″ pom. Visit their website for more inspiration on how to use your paper poms.

If you are looking for an alternative to the usual wedding bouquet and want something completely different, this is for you.

 

We have just discovered DC Bouquets which is run by the very talented, Debbie Carlisle, who’s gorgeous boutique makes fantastic pieces with buttons, including wedding accessories, bouquets and buttonholes.

The one-off designs use a variety of vintage and vintage-style jewellery and buttons mixed with crystal, glass and pearl beads.

The buttonholes are brilliant as extra special gifts for those in your wedding party and the headwear is fabulous for bridesmaids, as some can be worn in a variety of ways.

Best of all after everyone has admired them on your wedding day, you will be left with a beautiful reminder that you can keep forever and show-off time and time again. J’Adore!
