The birthday-girl doesn't like balloons, so this was an alternative to bring colour to the hall. A lot more work than blowing up balloons, though!
There are plenty of tutorials out there for making these, so I won't go into instructions here, but do let me know if you have any questions. They are fun to make, in small doses - but I have made 73 of them, so I'm pretty much pom-pommed out now! 55 large ones, and 18 small ones - you can see 5 of each below.
I went for warm fiery colours - tissue paper in burgundy, red, orange, yellow and hot pink. I was nervous about my colour choices at first, but I'm actually really pleased with the bright colourful look! Someone on Instagram mentioned that it looks like a fiesta - well, that's ideal! (Thanks Chrissie!)
Here are the 55 large pom-poms stacked up in the spare-room (they were taking up most of the living room floor as I made them!)...
I wanted to give you an idea of how big the pile was - but it seems a lot bigger in real life! The next challenge is transporting them to the venue and stringing them up somehow... eeek!
