You may know we recently added Tissue Pom Poms to the Peach Blossom shop and they’re super popular for weddings, parties or even just decoration around the home! We stock 14 colours so you’ll find something to suit you but if you want some tips on how to put them together we’ve put together this step by step guide to make it easy peasy!
For one pom pom you’ll need 12 sheets of tissue paper. Once you’ve counted them out, lay the tissue flat, like below.
Next, make accordion folds in the tissue paper, making sure the fold is at the valley of each scallop. Crease with each fold.
Then take one piece of floral wire (included in the pack) and wrap and twist it around the centre of folded tissue paper.
Although you don’t have to do it now, it’s probably easier to tie ribbon or string around the wire before you fluff out the pom pom. Tie on a piece long enough to let you hang the pom pom if that’s what you plan to do.
Now open out one end of the tissue paper to make a fan shape. Separate each layer of paper, pulling away from the centre.
For best results, pull away layers from one half before moving on to the next side.
Once all layers are pulled out, rearrange the tissue as required to create a fully fluffed Tissue Paper Pom Pom!
I thought I’d post this cute Halloween idea as it’s a little different but simple and stylish – exactly what we like here at Peach Blossom!
To make a pumpkin like this follow these guidelines:
Lay lace fabric over the pumpkin, gathering it at the bottom with your hand, to determine the location for the stem opening. Remove the lace. Cut a small circle (for the stem) with scissors and lay the lace over the pumpkin, inserting the stem through the opening. Gather the lace at the pumpkin bottom, trimming the excess, and secure the lace in place using running stitches in a wheel-spoke pattern.
You don’t have to use lace, why not try it with some material you might have lying around the house? Happy crafting!

One thing I love to find is hassle free, simple, yet super effective party detail and decoration. Ideas that make a big impact but are really easy to implement are good for when you might be short of planning time for a party or decide to throw a celebration at the last minute. That’s why I loved this decoration the moment I saw it. All it takes is a few balloons (which you might already have) to be stuck to the wall, and if they’re behind the drinks table, as below, they give the effect of bubbles. Simple, check. Stylish, check. Now all I need is the champagne. Image credit Martha Stewart, via Everything Fabulous
