Kissing Balls For Flower Girls

by Cindy on January 31, 2011

Kissing balls or as they are sometimes called pomander balls make a great wedding accessory for flower girls. They are a popular choice because they are so simple to carry and therefore make them an easy accessory for young girls aged between 3 – 6 years old.

I’ve made many flower kissing balls over the years. You can see one here in this photo above featuring a pearl bead handle and pale pink chrysanthemums. Andrea (the bride) had pearl detailing in all her wedding flowers.

In the photo next to it you can see a moss and orchid pomander ball that I recently made for a winter wedding. Stunning Phalaenopsis orchids and moss featured throughout all of the wedding flowers as the wedding had a winter woodland theme.
