This week’s Ladylove comes from the fabulous Diana from The Mamahood. Her events provide mothers with the chance to get creative, collaborative and inspired. Today she’s sharing her love of all things pompommed with us with her Ladylove top 5.
I’m a sucker for a pom pom. I defy anyone to disagree – a pom pom can significantly improve your day. Even saying the words make me feel happy! Here is a round up of some my favourite pom pom products…
My favourite Mamahood workshop was a neon Pom Pom workshop with Hollie from @florafairweather. She is a mega talented mama and her bright beautiful rainbow blanket is the perfect gift for a new baby!
Another amazing mum-run business is the wonderful @Edit58 – run by creative mama Lisa, she sources a beautiful curated collection of bits for your home. I love her pom pom baskets – I use them to hide the sprawling toys that are basically taking over my house!
And if you are looking for pom poms for the kids you can do no better than check out @lalaandpom. Run by a lovely mama Lucy (ex Mini Boden) her shop is filled with handmade colourful hats and accessories all with… you guessed it…poms. I love her pom hairbands and key rings and these wooden pom necklaces are a perfect gift for a little girl.
And when it comes to decorations, parties and wrapping – who doesn’t need a pom, right?! Lovely Sarah the mama behind party shop @thejellyrabbit stocks this cheap gorgeous garland. I have it and have used it to top birthday cakes, hung it to brighten my daughters bedroom and attached it to brown paper presents.
And finally if all that isn’t pomtastic enough for you, you can get your pom craft on! There are some amazing tutorials online – everything from from paper poms to shaped poms (I love @MrPrintables, @SewYeah and @OhHappyDay for the best tutorials). But if you only do one thing, check out this tutorial for a pom pom wall hanging from @sugarandcloth. WOW!
Diana founded The Mamahood a year ago with the aim of bringing mamas together in their local neighbourhoods. Her craft workshops started in South East London where where they have been a sell-out and Mamahoods are now setting up in more locations across the UK.
