Party Poms

 My nephew had his 4th birthday this weekend, and my best friend (aka sister God sent later in life ;)) is the party queen. She has always been amazing at decorating, and organizing the day with activities. Anyway she made these great poms for her fall festival party last month and decided to do it again for the John Deer party. They are super inexpensive, approximetly 50 cents a piece. Meanwhile the big party stores sell them for 3 for $7. I loved them so much I think I may do some christmas ones as decor for the holidays! The best part is she posted party pictures on facebook, and someone sent her a message asking to buy all of the decor, how awesome is that!!
