Wedding Pom Poms


One of the main design elements in my daughter’s weddingcame from an inexpensive, fun and easy (though time consuming) project that involved the whole family in preparation.

We used sheets of tissue paper to make simple pom poms for the church and reception. They were literally everywhere. We used purple, teal and white in varying sizes according to its placement and purpose.

Large white pom poms hung on the doors leading into the sanctuary, along with the couple’s monogram.
We also hung them from sashes draped over the memorial table and unity sand table on the platform.
We hung them down the aisles on the sides of the pews.
We hung them from the mantle behind the cake table.

The pom poms even appeared on the food tables!
More decorations at the reception.
Here’s a link to instructions on making the pom poms.

  2. That is an ingenious idea! … and so much cheaper than flowers. I just love it and although our kids are only 6 and 8 (and hopefully marriage is a long way off yet … I keep reminding dd to finish school, work then get married and have babies) … I will keep this is mind :-)
    So colourful and original.
