Crystal's pom-poms and stick centerpieces #Decor Porn#centerpiece#decor#diy wedding#martha stewart#pom-poms#steal-this-idea January 20 | Ariel Meadow Stallings offbeatariel Are you looking this picture and thinking to yourself, "Self, I want to know more about those awesome colorful pom-poms and non-froofy centerpieces"? Well, thanks to a wonderful comment to my old non-floral centerpieces post, I happen to have a link to Crystal's page full of photos of these here pom-poms and stick centerpieces. Oh, and when I asked Crystal about making the pom-poms, she admitted they were from Martha. But what *I* want to know is whether Martha intended the pom-poms to be abused in such wonderful ways.

I think this will help a lot couples realize that it's okay to do it their way. Reply I never thought I would say this but the black folding chairs look great with the teal tablecloths Reply Awesome idea. I also want to go the non-flowers route but as we're going for an americana wedding I was thinking something based around oil lamps? Might ask some advice from the bride tribe Reply Thanks, Ariel–I sent Crystal a myspace message! Reply i'm doing the pom poms for our backyard wedding in May. Tho, I got ours from an import shop in Portland (Cargo, in the Pearl Dist). They are made from that ruffled plastic that costume lei's are made of. Tons of vibrant colors, cheap!, and can stay up all summer. Fun! Reply If anyone is using these colors, or wants to make some poofs of their own, I have a ton of tissue paper left over from this endeavor!! The colors are the ones pictured (orange, light pink, and reddish/salmon) Contact me a firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in any!
