The striped ribbon on this easy-to-carry accessory inspired the stripe in the pomander itself (and is used as a sash on the flower girl's dress). To make the pomander, wrap a 3-inch ball of floral foam with two 18-inch pieces of 22-gauge floral wire, crisscrossing to divide ball into quarters; twist ends together, and curl into a 1-inch loop. Soak foam in water. Cut flower stems to 1 1/2 inches. Insert two rows of colored roses around ball, then add cream or white roses to fill. For handle, tie 18-inch length of ribbon to loop.
