This might seem silly, but what is the best way to transport tissue poms?? I am storing them hanging up. I was thinking if I handled them gently, I could put them in bags or something… But then my cat knocked one on the floor and it is squished! Do they need to hang while we transport them too?? Or should we do the fluffing there instead of at home? Its about a 20-25 minute drive from or house to the reception site.

what about stringing them up in the car, back and forth, multiple rows in the car?

I’m doing tissue poms for my wedding (the venue is 3 hours away) and I’m just folding them ahead of time, then fluffing them out when we get there. I figure with 4 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen, it shouldn’t take to long to fluff and hang them.

I’ve also been wondering this, as I want to make the little ones for the napkin rings at the reception.
@shnoogles – that’s a good idea, but I don’t konw that I want to (or have someone else) fluff 150 of them the day of 😉

We’re going to get some rods that we can hang across the backseat of our cars to suspend them. My venue is about four hours away, so I know they’d look worse by the end of the trip.
I would be too stressed worrying about everything else getting done once we’re at our wedding venue … I’ve done three so far and they take a long time to finish …

I’ve got 6 HUGE tissue poms and hadn’t even considered this problem yet…but since my venue is a whopping 10 minutes from my house, it’s not really a problem.
Mine are stored hanging, so I like the suggestion of a clothes rack in the backseat that they could still hang from…my parents always had one for trips.

If you need to hang and transport them, what about using plastic tubs and threading a dowel or piece of wire across the top? Most of these bins have holes under the handles, but you could easily drill a hole through the plastic as well. This also gives the option to stack them and put a lid on them to keep them safe and dust free. 🙂 [attachment=340616,42481]

Carefully and with finess… maybe fill them with helium and carry them like balloons :p
