One image in a photo essay about a Scandinavian house renovation caught our eye: a kid’s room with tissue paper pom poms hanging from the ceiling, like some sort of celestial blooms. They’d be lovely in just about any room. So we hunted them down to discover that they are a common wedding decoration, readily available on Amazon and at craft stores…cheap. We wonder why they are not used more for everyday decorating…

A pack of 12-inch pom poms cost about $10 and come in a variety of colors

Search “pom pom garland” on Etsy and you’ll find all sorts of iterations made of paper, felt, yarn…

Long ago, friends gave up vintage Japanese garland that we strung at the head of our bed. We never tire of it.

At Ebay, we searched vintage Japanese garland and found these foil beauties (you’d have to string them yourself)…
