Making Rose Pomanders in 4 Easy Steps

Rose Pomander - Title

Rose pomanders are becoming very popular for smaller bridesmaids because they are such a beautiful accessory. They look particularly pleasant when complementing rose nosegays, which are also a very popular trend. You can construct a pomander in many different ways, but the easiest method by far is to purchase a small ball of floral foam and attach a ribbon or cord. Then simply cut the roses with about ¾ inch (2cm) of stem, and push the soaked ball all the way around. Although easy to construct in this way, soaked floral foam can be very heavy. The downside to this type of pomander is that as the foam dries out some of the rose heads and may become dislodged, causing it to start to break up.

What Do You Know About Peonies?

Peonies 101

Peony - Title

Peonies are lush large blossoms that could be single, semi or double blossoms, double blossoms are most popular. These are also known as the bomb type, because of their explosion of numerous petals and the round shape. The blossoms at times reach 5 to 6 inches across.

Fresh peonies must be cut or bought in bud stage, when the bud is the size of a tennis ball and is rather soft to touch—somewhat like checking a peach for ripeness. If the buds are too firm they probably won’t develop. Peonies make outstanding cut flowers if they are cut at proper bud stage. Old peonies have a good number of their petals opened and turned down. The flower is supple to touch, with some outer petals faded. The flower may fall apart or shed when handled.
