Pomanders (also known as kissing balls) are a beautiful way to spice up your wedding decorations, whether using them throughout the entire theme, or just incorporating them in small ways, such as a few placed here and there on the reception tables.
You can make them out of fresh flowers, paper flowers, or tissue paper. Tissue paper pomanders are the easiest and cheapest. Because of their ease and affordability, you can use a lot of them in big clusters for a “wow” effect. Paper flower pomanders give you a little more flexibility as far as colors and styles go, but can be a time consuming diy project. But, if you’re a crafty gal, go for it! It can be a fun project with a group of friends. I especially like the idea of making pomanders out of vintage book paper and newspaper.
Fresh flower pomanders are the most sought after for their natural beauty. I’ve included a fresh flower pomander tutorial on the bottom of this post. You can also leave the pomanders up to your florist to make and design for you.
Hang them from the trees, from the rafters, from chandeliers, or from the ceiling! I love the idea of hanging pomander balls over each reception table or over the cake table or dessert buffet:
