Friday Florals – Pomander Balls

Trends on the rise like the pomander ball are a fun way to add creativity to your decor. Although the traditional pomander ball such as baby’s breath and carnation are beautiful, there are many ways to switch things up to make it your own! These are easy to create in many forms. They don’t necessarily have to hold a perfect circular shape, they can have many dimensions that allow them to look whimsical, natural, or elegant.

This was my favorite it has been added into the display instead of standing on its own.

As you can see the pomander ball can be used in many aspects throughout your wedding. I think they can stand alone or be added to a display to add to any decor plan. Another idea is to add jewels hanging around your pomander ball. This would add more of a vintage vibe and intertwine with your table decor. Many different flowers can be used to create these depending on budget, how would you use them in your wedding?
