These would serve as center piece with half a dozen balloons in them. The balloons would be filled with helium and these vases would hide the “weights” that keep the balloons from floating away.

I have ordered this tissue paper twice now. The price is right and you can make 6 to 8 pompoms depending on the size of pompoms you are making. I’ve also used this tissue paper to give color to some party favors.

Pinwheels

I found these pinwheels at Michaels. They were displayed outside and had a colorful selection.
