Pomander: Mandatory for wedding floral arrangements

All pomanders and flower balls shown in this page are made by students, instructor and graduates of California Flower Art Academy. Have you ever heard of POMANDER ? How about FLOWER BALLS ? Don't you know KISSING BALLS ? Many people have never heard of it and they have no idea at all about these terminologies. They are balls made of flowers and often used at weddings. Typically this item is held by a bride or used for decorating chairs at weddings.

Historically pomander was a ball of perfume and it was believed to protect against infection especially in times of pestilence in Europe. Nowadays this ball made of flowers has become one of mandatory floral decorations at the time of weddings. This COULD be placed on the table of a wedding party as a decoration. Brides look more beautiful at weddings and they may be protected during the coming long life by holding a pomander. Many pomanders available in the market are fake and they are not made of flowers.

At a wedding party, real pomanders made of real flowers should be used. At California Flower Art Academy students can learn how to make this special item. If you join Wedding Floral Decoration Advanced Course, you can learn how to make this flower ball. California Flower Art Academy has been engaged in teaching various kinds of floral designs in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley (San Jose, Santa Clara County) since 1990 as one of authorized schools certified by Flower Decorators Association that is one of the best established and most prestigious floral associations in Japan.

Uncountable number of students learned floral arrangements at our school and many graduates are now enjoying to make their own floral arrangements or engage in floral business as a floral designer or flower arrangement instructor not only in the Unites States but also outside of America. We offer a WIDE RANGE OF PROGRAMS among which each student can find his/her most favorite course which definitely fits his/her requirement.

You can take lessons not only on weekdays but also on the weekend. If you cannot spare time during daytime, you can join our evening class at San Jose classroom. Our unique way of hands on training based (ONE ON ONE instruction) on small group class system limiting number of students to six(max) will help you easily earn practical skills of flower arranging. If you are interested in joining our school, please do not hesitate to contact our administration office on We help you make a difference in floral art.
