These soft pom-poms recall clouds sailing across a blue sky; they also echo in color and shape the white peonies in the centerpieces.

Wrap ribbon around hand 10 times (wrap more for a fuller bow; use fewer fingers for a smaller one). Cut a notch at the center on each side, and cinch with string at the notches.
