A wedding pomander is sometimes referred to as a "kissing ball".  If you plan on having an attendant or flower girl carry the pomander, however, you want to be sure the ball of florist foam is small.  The weight of the flowers and wet foam can be heavier than you think!

For this flower bouquet design, you'll need the following fresh flowers and florist supplies:

Optional:  Waterproof Tape

A wedding pomander is usually wrapped waterproof tape to keep the foam integrity from so many stems being inserted into it.  The netted ball helps a great deal, and you don't have to fool around with inserting a straw through the foam and fishing the ribbon through it . . . but I would still have a few wraps of the waterproof tape to be secure.

Soak the ball in water that has been treated with Crystal Clear Flower Food.

After inserting the stems of flowers, use the Floralock Stem Adhesive to secure in place.  Short stems have a tendency to slip out sometimes, but Floralock prevents that.  Mist the flowers well with either Finishing Touch or Crowning Glory after the design is finished.  Refrigerate if possible.
