Have you Heard of Kissing Balls?

2 min read

During the Middle Ages, country dwellers would wind together twine and evergreen branches into a ramshackle sphere shape. In the center of this collection of evergreen branches and twigs, they would place a clay figure of an infant to represent the baby Jesus. These “holy boughs”, as they were called, would be hung from the ceiling along passageways in castles and big houses to render blessings and good luck to all who passed under the bough and the holy infant.

Over time, these kissing balls developed into a new meaning of love, affection, charity, piety and more. Now, the kissing ball now symbolized romantic love and is very popular in wedding ceremony décor and holidays.

We have gathered a collection of these unique and beautiful aisle ornamental kissing balls.

This one below is made with pink and white colored carnations, baby pink roses, and hanging by a light pink ribbon and a shepherd’s hook. This is a very sweet color combination that our couples really love.

These kissing balls are classic and chic with an all-white floral arrangement of white hydrangeas and gerbera daisies.  The final statement piece of the kissing ball is the navy blue bow and ribbon.

These make for a bold statement piece and is another favorite by our couples. The rose petals lining the aisle also add an extra touch to your love story wedding.

These all white rose kissing balls are so fragrant and beautiful. These give your guests a light rose scent and are absolutely lovely for an aisle décor piece.

These large shepherd’s hooks hold large hot pink kissing balls are of carnations. This color represents compassion, nurturing and love. Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. These are a favorite of ours! We love when brides use bold or bright colors in their color schemes.
