Move over, poms – there’s a hot new decor trend in town! I’ve seen hanging spheres before (also called hanging string balls, but ‘spheres’ has a nice ring to it, no?) but I’ve never seen anything quite like these from The Find Sac. A & I have been discussing how we plan to update our backyard this summer. We recently hung these, I excitedly put our patio set and hot red umbrella out for the season, and I jokingly asked him 99 questions about pergolas yesterday. (I secretly just want something chic onto which I can display lanterns, poms, hanging spheres, and these for entertaining.) Anyways, all this outdoor planning has got me thinking about new trends for outdoor weddings. Paper poms and paper lanterns have been popular for years and have undoubtedly opened the door for fresh ideas yet to come to fruition. I’ll never tire of the aforementioned party decor, but I’m ready for something new. You, too? Read on for four reasons why they’re the hottest new thing in town for weddings, showers, and outdoor entertaining this summer…
EDITOR’S NOTE, 2019: This shop is no longer available. :( However, you can find hanging sphere lanterns that are similar from here. I hope it helps!
Hanging spheres are balls of string which are formed into shape by – you guessed it! – balloons. The balloons are removed after the spheres are formed and the result is a see-through sphere. Our friend + Featured Artisan, Kathleen of The Find Sac, has perfected the art of hanging spheres and she offers them in three sizes: small (2 oz), medium (4 oz), and large (8 oz). These spheres can be used as centerpieces (placed in baskets or vases), or suspended from tree branches for an outdoor soiree. Hanging spheres are typically made in the color white, but they’re also available in other colors, too.
Ready to deck out your entertaining space? Need chic decor that will definitely get noticed? Grab a set of hanging spheres while they last! (P.S. I just noticed they’re on sale right now, too! Score!)
