I have been in love with this backdrop for a long time. I talked to my aunt who knows a decorator...
I snatched this idea from another bride, but I totally love it.
My cake is going to be in the center of the reception hall and I though if I hung 3 - 5 tissues balls at different lengths above the cake it would look amazing! What do you think? They also seem very simple to make...and cheap!!!
How to Make the Pom-Poms
You'll need tissue paper and 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire.
1. Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inchwide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.
2. Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes.
3. Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.
4. Tie a length of monofilament to floral wire for hanging.
