ENDLESS POM POM POSSIBILITIES --TIE AROUND A FESTIVE NAPKIN FOR A FUN WATERMELON-INSPIRED DINNER PARTY, ELEVATE YOUR SUMMER GIFT WRAPPING OR TIE MULTIPLES TOGETHER FOR A DELICIOUS GARLAND (I LIKE TO RUN THE GARLAND DOWN THE CENTER OF A DINNER TABLE).

THIS LITTLE POM POM ACT OF ATTENTION HELPS MAKE A GATHERING SPECIAL AND THE MESSAGE IT SENDS TO MY GUESTS IS "YOU ARE SPECIAL TO ME."
