As far as I know, there aren’t any weddings in our family at the moment, but there’s got to be people getting married out there still, right?
It’s funny how you go through your own wedding, and your friends weddings, and then as you get older they get few and far between.
That doesn’t stop me from admiring all of the beautiful wedding day trends out there these days. I wish I would have known just a handful of them 21 years ago. At least now I can “Pin” them for our daughters wedding day. If they decide to get married, that is. That’s what they always say to me.
Introducing an easy, affordable, and yet beautiful wedding day idea…my “Baby’s Breath Wedding Ball”.
I wish I could say that I am the only one that thought of this. I am definitely not. When the idea struck, I searched Baby’s Breath on Pinterest and there are millions of Baby’s Breath Balls and other really pretty ideas floating around. I actually couldn’t stop looking because they were all so pretty.
From huge Baby’s Breath chandeliers (yes, they exist!) to little flower girl bouquets…Baby’s Breath is hot. Not only because it’s gorgeous, but because it’s very affordable.
I went to my local florist and she gave me this bunch for $5. I bet you could find it for even less.

These “Baby Breath Wedding Balls” could be used in several ways. In fact, there doesn’t have to be a wedding at all. How about a baptism, or first communion? A wedding shower? A birthday party? An anniversary?
I’ve seen them hung from ceilings, mantels, trees, and even the church pews, or chairs. The flower girl bouquet idea is probably my favorite.
To start off, your foam ball needs to be dark green. I painted a 4 inch FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Ball with my daughters acrylic paint. You can find the balls in all different sizes at Michael’s, Walmart, and JoAnn stores.
The Baby’s Breath can be fragile so you need to cut the stem at the strongest points. Mine stuck in with out any tools or problems.
The ribbon I stuck in with a butter knife and added a little FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® StyroGlue®.
Once you go all the way around the ball, you are good to go, and ready to hang.
I think it’s so pretty!
