So here is my version of the step by step instructions & how my mothers day table turned out.
Instead of buying bunch's of flowers i bought 4 pots of cysanthamums & used the left over tissue paper & some white ribbon to jazz them up!
A cute centerpiece that our guests of honour could take home with them!
ok - the pom poms - my version!
lay out 8 sheets of paper flat
(i got packs of ten sheets for $1)
Fold them into about an inch folds
I used stretchy nylon string (also from the $2 shop) & tied a knot around the middle. Holds it in place & will also be used to hang them!
Snip the ends into points or rounds
fan em' out
start pulling up the layers - be careful here not to rip them
(i did a few times!)
Ta da! Finished!
Very excited at this stage that they worked!
And the finished mothers day table below!
Out on our little balcony - a bit of a squish for 8 people but it looked nice i think!
The finished product - i was very happy - looked really cute i think!
I used clear tape to stick them to the ceiling of the balcony & put our flower pots (one for each mum/nanna/aunt) down the center of the table.
Our mums (& nanna & aunty) loved it! Was a nice warm sunny avo - we drank champagne, ate yummy food
(if i do say so myself) & had a great time!
Even if i was coughing & spluttering most of the time!
Hope your mums day was great too!
