When I received an opportunity to make the biggest floating pomanders yet, I did worry a bit. How big was too big, how many roses will each take, can I guesstimate the rose count correctly, how will I figure the shipping? Those worries took about a minute or so, as I was overjoyed with the challenge. After discussing several times, with the Father of the Bride, oh yes, that was a first too, a great experience at that as well, we decided to a sample size of 18″ balls. Let me remind you that the biggest size foam balls you can buy at a craft store is around 10″. After seeing the sample in person, they (my customer) decided to order 14 of the small ones (yes that is what they called the 18″) and one statement size of 34″ ball. All covered in white base roses with pink accent roses.

I was thrilled to get started, after countless hours of assembly, trying to get the accent pieces just right, I boxed up 14 giant boxes and shipped them off.

I took pictures along the way, and today received the professional photos. So glad I took on this challenge. Since this order, I have made even bigger size pomanders, and rose letters. In fact today, i just delivered two 8′ tall letters covered in white roses. I will blog about that some other time.

Enjoy the floating romance

wanna see what all the new designs are, just scroll down the memory lane.

Have you been picturing a pool side wedding since you were a little girl? You found your soul mate, you found the perfect location…Anxiety kicked in, becasue you see all the beatiful photos online, with amazing set ups, professional lightings, and decorations, but your budget is not unlimitted as others.

Take a deep breath. I have just the right ideas for you. You can host a small backyard pool reception or you could be at your country clup with a huge pool, you can still have the look you want for around $300-$500.

These floating candles and pomander balls that are one of a kind and is just the touch you need. With variety of colors you can make it fit your event.

I told you, take a deep breath, it is going to happen, you do not have to stare at the photos anymore, and watch DIY videos and add one more thing to do to your million line item list. Just have a look at these and feel the calmness of the water.




This is what has been keeping me busy

These Floating Flower Decorations I have been making look so innocent and cute, but don’t be fooled. They take hours to assemble. I am not kidding, each rose is trimmed to exact size, and one at a time added while maintaining perfect coverage. You stop feeling your fingers after a while.

But once they are done, you can not stop staring at them. Even though I know they will float perfectly, I run to my backyard and set them free in the pool right after I poke the last rose in its place.

It is absolutely the funnest moment. My dogs kind of give me a funny look. I give them a funny look back, and say ” hey I have to make sure they float, think of it as quality control”

I know they don’t buy it…
