DIY: Party Poms/Tissue Paper Flower Balls {Party Decor}

How cute are these party poms? I’ve seen them all over the craft world, but never known how to make them. I thought I’d give it a go so that I could have some awesome decor for my upcoming dinner and they turned out awesome!

I experimented with different sizes, but I personally like the medium size best – it’s not too big (approx 12-13 inches), and it fluffs up really nice. You can use any type of string to hang the poms, a lot of crafters like to use clear cord so that it doesn’t show; I opted for the jute twine. I love it too much.

Here’s a step by step pictorial on how to make these poms that can spice up any party decor – guaranteed.

Hummus {Lebanese Style}

Hummus is the arabic word for Chickpeas, or Garbanzo beans. Hummus is traditionally eaten in all parts of the Arab world, and each region makes it a little differently. This is the Lebanese style hummus that we grew up eating, usually with pita bread. Have you ever had a hummus sandwhich? Cause if you haven’t you are missing out – big time. Hummus was definitely not popular as we were growing up, but now you find people eating hummus with everything, and you find it everywhere! You could pretty much walk into any grocery store and buy some hummus, but it probably won’t be as good as this recipe. Actually we’re confident it won’t, because nothing beats home made. Also, packaged hummus doesn’t taste anything like the hummus we know.

How to: Preserve Bananas & Strawberries

Tip: When they’re about to go bad, cut up Bananas into even sized pieces and spread them out on a flat surface (we used a cutting board, but a plastic tray works well too). Put this in the freezer and when they are frozen or near frozen (about 1 to 2 hours depending on your freezer), put them all in a bag a ziplock freezer bag. Always freeze fruits individually and then put them together so they don’t freeze into one big chunk. These come in handy for healthy smoothies and baking. You can even do this with fresh Bananas!

Tip: When Banana’s turn dark because they are super ripe, throw the whole Banana (peel and all) into the freezer. The darker the Banana, the sweeter it is! These are perfect for baking sugar-free or low-sugar desserts because the sweetness of the Banana compensates for the lack of refined sugar in the recipe. We like this method for our delicious low-fat Banana bread.
