I am a bit stumped and was wondering if anyone could help me out. My wedding is October 2010.
I really want to hang paper lanterns and tissue paper pom’s above the dance floor at my reception venue but I’m not sure how many would be appropriate for the space.
The dance floor and ceiling is an odd 17’L x 10’W octagon shape.
My colors of choice are dark purple, pewter and fushia.

Honestly, this is entirely a matter of personal taste. We had 127 paper lanterns for a space that was about 50 feet wide and 120 feet long. Below is a picture of the coverage that gave. Depending on how dense you want the coverage to be, you could adjust up or down from that.

I don’t know how many to suggest, but I do know that tissue paper poms take a damn long time to make. I made a bunch for my shower and I’m making about 20 for my ceremony. If I never see another sheet of tissue paper it will be too soon! Consider buying them instead of making them yourself. 🙂

Your space looked great! Nice high ceilings. My space has really low ceilings and that’s why I was stumped because I was afraid of making it too cluttered. Thanks for posting the picture of your event!

too much time to make. I made a few for my daughters 1st birthday party. I really was considering buying them from sellers on Etsy but it’s just cheaper to make. I’m enlisting the help of my bridesmaids and other friends that are willing to help. I’m throwing a “Pre-Wedding Decorations Making Get-Together”….HAHA, I’m putting those girls to work =)

I wish I could get a pomander-making army together but I’m such a perfectionist that I wanted them all to turn out IDENTICAL. I figured the only way I could ensure that would be the case was by making them all myself. I’m about halfway through and I’m starting to second guess my decision!
