Here’s an easy, DIY idea for your next get-together: Tissue Poms! These are not only easy to make, but they’re super cute and very customizable for your next event. Consider the tissue paper colors and patterns available today! I love the idea of these hanging in clusters with paper lanterns over tables, under trees full of twinkle lights, through doorways or from chandeliers, swinging above a dance floor, covering a table as a quick centerpiece, or decorating a candy bar to add color and flare. Poms can be used as napkin rings, on top of favor boxes or fluffed as mini flowers for a modern arrangement. Consider the possibilities! Find a quick How-To and more great inspiration after the jump!

These mini cakes by Confetti Cakes are a great summer idea and incredibly clever. They’re also the perfect size for a smaller get-together or birthday, and are even cuter when grouped! Think of all of the great ways these could be decorated!
To try your hand at creating your own, cut baked cake rounds into squares using pre-cut parchment paper as your guide (unless you have a square baking pan with perfectly perpendicular sides — as opposed to the traditional slanted option). Layer cake with a thin filling or icing (because the cake is pretty tall, I’d stick to a basic buttercream as opposed to a fancy filling that will cause the cake to droop or bulge) until the width is the same as the height and length, creating your cube. Finally, use a stronger icing or fondant to cover the box and keep all contents well contained, I’d suggest a crumb coat as well. Then decorate to your hearts content with frosting or fondant/gum sugar cutouts!
