I am interested in the answers to this as well.  There are two different kinds of pomander balls… Styrofoam and floral foam.  I don’t know if Styro holds water at all but floral foam does.  I would love to know how far in advance you can make them.

could you use silk flowers? i made pomanders with flowers from the dollar stire and they look great! I thought they might look cheap and junky but you totally can’t tell. add a little spray glitter and -awesome!

you could make them two days in advance but they need to be in a cold place. If I was you I would make them day before just to be safe.

I followed a tutorial from one of the bees. I’ll try to find out who.

I love that look. Simple elegance. Not too much and not too elegant = = class!!!  Bravo for you.  I spoke with my florist and she said if you wanted to do them on Firday you have to keep them refrigerated.  Can you do that?
