{TuTu Tuesday} Pimp Poms

In between TuTus and Hair Accessories, I've found a way to incorporate my love of party decor into my work.

{How did it start?}
A few weeks back I was sharing my dreams with my husband as I often do since he's my greatest encourager. I remembered a fact about my past which had us both rolling! For my 6th grade science fair project, my partner and I made a "Party House." You read it right!

Her dad made us a wooden house model which I hooked up with a spinning disco ball, a doorbell, a ceiling fan, lights, and of course, the most scientific touch: red sequins. I did.

The more I thought about it, the more I came to terms with the fact that I love party decor. It's in my DNA. I've always been the decorator for special holidays and birthdays growing up even though I was the youngest of three girls. I even decorated my room like a museum and sold tickets for tours when I was in elementary school.


I love to celebrate. I love pretty things. But, pink is not my favorite color. Lime green is. That's the kind of girl I am.

I'm through the roof excited about this new collection because it allows me to express myself and have fun mixing ribbons, fabrics, and colors to create a truly unique product for each individual client.
I can't wait to show you some pictures and start adding items to my etsy shop. For now, here's the logo.

Hope you'll join me on this new adventure!



  1. Oh your logo is so cute! I saw these at Nikki's gator party and they are really cute!

  2. Thanks, Carmen! I read your post about having too much paper and I laughed out loud because it's the same way over here with tulle. My husband found a strand of tulle attached to his pants at work! ;)

  3. Why is it called "Pimp Poms"? Isn't "pimp" derogatory?

  4. Hi Anonymous!

    Thank you for your interest in the new name. The pop culture or slang definition of the word "pimp" in the United States refers to something that is stylish, as made popular by the MTV show "Pimp My Ride," where people's cars were transformed from beat-up to fabulous!

    Thanks for asking!
