A pomander is a ball of dried herbs and spices that were originally created to ward off illnesses and bad smells. On the other hand, a kissing ball is a ball of dried plants, especially mistletoe, which was hung during the Christmas season for strangers to have fun and kiss under. Nowadays, kissing balls (or pomanders) are used as decorations in weddings and as an alternative to the traditional flower girl basket.
Kissing balls can be hung as accents in the wedding ceremony or at the wedding reception venue. They can also be carried by flower girls at venues that don’t allow flower petals to be dropped on the floor.
