Beautiful, bespoke blossom

Pompom Blossom is the brainchild of Sophie Stewart, a creative writer and mother of two.  What makes her business unique is that she hand dyes all the tissue paper used in the pompoms so they are exactly the colour and hue that you want. The ultimate in unique, luxury wedding decor, Pompom Blossom are the bespoke pompom must have for any wedding!

Sophie’s individuality and love of colour, together with her meticulous attention to detail is  evident in the painstaking process to which Pompom Blossom is ‘brought to bloom’. Each individual Pompom Blossom takes over two hours to hand-craft, as Sophie explains- ‘each pom starts off life as sixteen sheets of plain white tissue paper, I then dye each sheet of tissue individually in two or more colours to replicate the myriad of delicate colours and diversity within fresh flowers.'

'As I hand-dye each sheet of white paper the central core of the pompoms are different in colour to the outer petals – something that you can’t achieve with shop-bought tissue. The entire process takes more than two hours but I can hand-dye to any colour, shade or hue, for example I can recreate the palest yellow centres and blush petals of the Pink Rose or the mandarin centres and coral petals of the Coral Peony.'

'From lavender to champagne or icy blue to aquamarine, from roses, to hydrangeas, peonies to sweet peas - every colour combination of every flower can be replicated.’

Often liaising with the florist, Sophie can harmonise the pompom blossom to the bridal bouquet or table flowers. 

Romantic and beautiful, Pompom Blossom certainly gives your wedding the wow factor.
