I fell in love with the table centres pictured but after visiting the florist and being told that they would be very expensive I am looking at ways to create a similar piece but without the cost!
My latest idea is to replace the flowers with paper pom poms. It doesn’t sound like a great idea as I’m writing it but I love the fullness of the pom poms and to replicate that in flowers would cost thousands.
Has anyone used them in this way? I can only seem to find pics of them set alone or hanging.

You could totally get that effect by making “flowers” out of pom poms! I used that exact tutorial from Martha Stewart for my flowers! You could either make one giant “poof” or a bunch of small poofs put together (I think the latter would look best)
Here are some pictures of my flowers. The bouquets are made of a bunch of smaller pom poms put together:

I LOVE pomander balls, they are the cutest thing. Martha has a how-to on her website I’ve never made one, but I think I heard they were relatively easy once you do a few.

@DeathByDesign: Your pom pom bouquets look amazing! Now you have suggested using smaller ones I think that is definitely the way forward and that way I can incorporate more than one colour, thanks for the inspiration!!!

I’m not really saving money because I’m getting these from a florist anyway, but here are our poms for centerpieces. Just the tall ones in the middle with some small candles around it.

@Natalieh86: They are stunning!!! I actually think I prefer the effect they give, they are so full, gorgeous!

I was out shopping this weekend and spotted some pom poms that were reduced so I bought what they had left in white just to have a play around and see what I could create. I only had one vase at home that was similar to the ones in the original pic and it’s a lot shorter but I quite like how the pom poms look. There are only 4 medium sized ones on there which cost me £2.00 approx $3.75…bargain!
