Etsy Favorite: Pom Flair and a Giveaway!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a beautiful and fun tassel garland from Pom Flair (thanks for hosting the giveaway, Lara!) This shop is dedicated to creating fun and beautifully crafted partyware made out of 100% recycled materials. How awesome is that?! My tassel garland is right now decorating my somewhat boring office and I love it! It seriously brings some color and happy to the space. And now, I want to introduce you to Carmen, the young lady behind these pretty creations.

1. Name, Age, Business Name- 
My name is Carmen Taylor, I'm 26 and my business name is Pom Flair. Although I'm in the process of re-branding and re-naming so that I may offer a wider array of handmade party decor.
2. When did you start your store and what inspired you to do so? 
I opened my Etsy shop in 2010. I had just relocated to a city to be closer to my love, at the time he was finishing graduate school and I found myself painfully bored in the evenings. I started entertaining more at our home and guests that attended the events adored these tissue paper creations. They later encouraged me to try and sell the items on Etsy. Until this suggestion I had only browsed Etsy, I never really considered my ability to offer items for consumers. I've now branched out to a self hosted shop on my website too.
3. Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in all sorts of places. While I'm not personally really into fashion, I like to pull colorways from trendy ensembles I may see online or in a magazine. As for the function of tissue paper, I'm constantly trying to adapt it in new forms to create dynamic party decor. 


Fabulous, right? And to make it better, Carmen is offering one lucky reader a beautiful tassel garland of their choice! That's right, you even get to pick your colors! To enter the giveaway please do the following (leave a separate comment for each):
1. Follow Pom Flair on Facebook
2. Follow Fashion Truffles via GFC
3. Pin a tassel garland from Pom Flair
4. Follow Fashion Truffles on Facebook
A winner will be chosen at random next Thursday, March 29th. Good luck, luvies!
