Oh, Flower Balls

Because my own DIY experiment was rather modest, I wanted to follow up with some inspiration pics showing different creative varations on the flower ball (aka pommander).  Images of flower balls abound, but there’s more to these guys than carnation balls on shepherd’s hooks and flower girl pommanders.

Here are my favorites!

Firstly, flower balls don’t have to be cutesy.  They can be very “Platinum Weddings” in fact.  I know this first one isn’t really a ball but more of a dome, but HAD to share.  The designer, Vo Floral Design out of San Leandro CA shared that 250 roses were used to create it! You heard that right…two…hundred…and…fifty!

They don’t have to be carnations or roses either!

They don’t need no stinking containers – they like to hang out naked!

They don’t have to be red, pink, orange, or yellow.  Here they are in various cool shades of blue and white, styled from casual to formal:

And I saved my favorite for last.  They can defy gravity, hanging overhead in a “skyscape” or behind a couple in a curtain design.  The top left pic wasn’t from a wedding but a widely photographed installment at the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas.   Enjoy!
