7 Creative Ways To Use Flower Balls and Tissue Poms

In honor of our featured products this week, we thought it was only fitting to put together some of our favorite looks using flower balls and tissue poms.  Also known as kissing balls, flower balls are perfect for adding more floral decor to your venue without taking up additional table space. They work well in both indoor and outdoor settings, and can be kept plain for casual events, or dressed up for a more formal event by adding crystals. Tissue poms are a great, inexpensive option that will bring a bold look and big style to your event. Tissue poms come in a variety of colors and sizes which make them perfect for achieving any look. We listed just 7 of our favorite ways to use flower balls and tissue poms, but these gems are so versatile that your decorating opportunities are endless!

1. Hanging from shepherd’s hooks

Hanging a bright pink flower ball from a shepherd’s hook creates a lovely, romantic feel while also providing a pop of color. This look is perfect for lining the aisle to the alter or placing around the venue for additional flair.

2. As centerpieces

Use a large red kissing ball to create a dramatic centerpiece that is sure to wow your guests. Place the flower ball on top of an Eiffel Tower vase to enhance the drama, or keep a low profile by placing it on top of a square vase filled with acrylic diamonds.

3. Paired with candle holders

This soft, elegant piece is the perfect complement to a larger floral centerpiece. Create a different look by lining these swirl pillar candle holders up down the center of a long table and alternate the toppers between flower balls or tissue poms and small lanterns.

4. As a chair sash accent

Like our other looks, this one works for both flower balls and tissue poms! Dress up your chairs by pinning one half of a flower ball or a tissue pom to a stretch chair sash. Change up where you pin them to create a variety of different looks.

5. In manzanita trees

Add some character to a manzanita tree by hanging our 6 inch tissue poms from the branches. This look makes for a great focal point at any event. Use one to add dimension to your candy bar or welcome table or make several to use as enchanting centerpieces.

6. As hanging decor

Connect several different sizes of tissue poms in coordinating colors to create an adorable hanging garland. Combine tissue poms with paper lanterns to make a fun chandelier. You can even use 20 inch flower balls like paper lanterns by hanging them overhead around your venue. Bonus: Save your creation after the event is over to use as home decor!

7. Within a bird cage

Add a pop of color and fun to a 10 inch birdcage by hanging a 5 inch flower ball from the top. Complement this look by filling 2 smaller birdcages with hydrangea or tissue poms in coordinating colors.
