Project

Pom-Poms and Luminarias

Dahlia-like pom-poms appear to float in the air, imparting a cheerful radiance to a rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, or casual reception. Echoing the vibrant hanging puffs, pom-pom napkin rings in citrus shades adorn each place setting. Square glass vessels covered in sunset-hued tissue cast a soft glow.
