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.

Hanging Pom-Poms
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.

My niece made an array of this in different sizes & colors and by far it was the most dynamic decoration within the wedding tent. It added so much to the atmosphere. Just a word to the wise...most rental tents will have an abundance of humidity if you plan to decorate the night before your event. You do not want to have the tissue poms saturated. Happy folding!
