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

Its brights and cheerful. It is romantic and free spirit. Its cozy and it is beatiful. Its warm and it is most definetely a busy time for a bride. So many colors and themes to choose from. But you also have the entire nature to use. Inspirations are everywhere.
Here are some of favorite finds from the internet.

It is expensive to decorate your dream wedding venue with real flowers. Especially if ones dream was over the top flowers. I am always mesmerized against a beautiful arrangement. Big, small any size floral center pieces just add so much to any event.
It’s not always feasible and can be a logistics nightmare. Do it yourself brides choose real touch or artificial flowers.
My favorite are the foam roses. They look so real you can’t tell even after you touch them.
Here are some photos of unreal but beyond real looking.

Till next time cheers,

Like everything we do in life, some like to follow the crowd, they are no trend setters, they like to do things proven to work, and are perfectly fine with that. And there are those who like to lead, set trends, add their personal touch to every little thing day do.

So when comes their wedding planning, they are not going to tear out pages from famous bridal magazines, they are going to take the good old wedding item and make it their own. They are going to stand out.

Here are some items that fit in this category so easily…
