We were so inspired by Sugar and Cloth`s pom pom tree last year, that we decided to create a whole party theme around it! We have giant pom poms, tiny pom poms, paper pom poms, inflatable pom poms (balloons lol) and so much more! This party was so easy and fun to create! Descriptions on how to make everything and products needed will be listed under each photo.
The pom pom tree was pretty straight forward to make, we just bought or made a bunch of pom poms and stuck them all over the tree. I got mom`s sweater at aerie last year but I linked a very similar one.

Giant yarn pom poms were made by hand
This cake was SO EASY to make! Kids could definitely help with this one.
1.) Make a 2 tiered cake round cake in whatever size and flavor you like.
2.) BIG POM POMS: Dye Hostess snowballs using food coloring mixed with vodka in those little travel spray bottles. Mixing the food dye with vodka helps to make sure that the snowballs don`t get soggy and the vodka evaporates so they won`t taste like vodka. I was worried that the pink snowballs would make the colors turn out weird but they absolutely didnt as you can see!
3.) After letting the snowballs dry, stick them on the cake with a little icing and toothpicks.
4.) BABY POM POMS: Buy donut holes. Dunk those bad boys in icing. Then roll them in colored coconut. Stick them on the cake.
5.) Eat a humungous slice.
The Deer Head
Okay, so i`m not even going to lie, this deer was NOT EASY to make! Lol. It ended up taking me way longer than I anticipated BUT I do think that it turned out super cute. I used my projector at school to just trace directly on my cardboard but you could definitely just print a bigger template from your computer. I will link the template I used here: https://bit.ly/2s02Nxy
I absolutely loved how our pom pom table turned out. The tree`s were made out of styrofoam cones and covered with felt pom poms. Order twice as many as you think you nee because it takes a zillion of those little guys! Then we just banked the center with all kinds of pom poms and honeycomb balls. Also, this was our first time using fairy lights and we are OBSESSED!!! They are like real life glitter!
Our plates are from the Kate Spade confetti collection. Plates seem to be the thing we seem to splurge on most but as you`ll see in other posts, we use all of our plates pretty often. They can really set the stage for your table so a lot of times they’re really worth it.
