The pricing of Pomanders

Let’s talk about the pricing of Pomanders (aka Kissing Balls), it seems like these range in price more than any other flower arrangement. I decided to post two different pomanders, one with a mix of hydrangeas and spray roses and the other of only spray roses. I then asked florists from around North America what they would charge. Wow, do the prices range greatly!

What do you think? What would you charge for these pomanders?

24″ – 1″ wide of sheer ribbon
2 Stems of antique green hydrangea
5 Stems of pink spray roses
5 Stems of lavender spray roses
7 Stems of Gomphrena

Holly’s price for this design is $110.00. Let’s see where all the other florists came in at:

Amanda from Alluring Blooms in Wisconsin priced this at $125.00
Amanda mentioned she loves using the netted spheres, big time saver for her designers.

Adizat would omit the gomphrena due to quality issues and the price of a bunch.

  1. Thanks for researching and posting this. These are always so hard to calculate! They really do take much more flowers than you would think.

  2. This is great to compare our prices to other areas in the US. Ours would be $110 and $70! love to make these!!

  3. Spray roses are $1.00 per stem where I purchase, so the cost for this look is low. I would likely charge about $65.00
