I love poms, also known as pomander balls. I think they are so fun, and can look very elegant if done correctly. Mr. Castle, on the other hand, thinks they look similar to bath loofahs.

I admit I see what he means, but I don’t think he sees their potential.
I have typically seen them made out of tissue paper, but they don’t have to be. They can also be made out of card stock, to give them a little less “loofah” quality.

Or they can be made with ribbons.
Perhaps Mr. Castle will let me incorporate these babies as long as they look as un-loofah-like as possible. Here’s a cute one.

My thoughts for the loofahs poms is to use them as aisle decor. In trying to keep our floral budget down, I did not include any aisle decor, and I worry it might look a little bare. To remind you of our venue, and also because I can never look at enough pictures, here it is.

The only decoration we currently have planned is a flower arrangement for the top of the gazebo. I’m sure if that was all we had it would still look amazing. But I’m really liking the last one made out of crepe paper, so I think I’ll give it a try!
Do you have any experience making poms? Have you seen them in person? Did they look like loofahs?
