I must tell you a little bit about how this flowers in popsicles thing happened. I was driving my kids to school and I said “mommy wants to make popsicles, what flavors can you pleeeease dream up for me?” Before I knew it delightful + tantalizing ideas were dancing around. All of a sudden my daughter screamed out FLOWER POPSICLES!!
And that is how this all happened. Since this recipe was posted here on MM, it has been featured in all kinds of magazines around the world, an extra special treat!
I often dream up wild ideas for popsicles. You guys have been huge fans of my Lemonade Cucumber Spa Pops. Those make you feel like you are at the spa even when you are not. My Spring Bouquet Pops can whisk you away to a fancy shower, tea party or wedding…even if you are at work in your photo studio 12 hours a day!
These are super fun for warm spring and summer days.
They would be a fun and surprising treat served at a bridal or baby shower. You can customize the colors of the flowers to suit the color theme of your party.
Do you think a bride could walk down the aisle holding a bouquet of popsicle flowers? Perhaps…if she doesn’t mind them dripping on her wedding gown…
You can also write sweet little messages on the popsicle sticks. Like this…
Just be sure whatever flowers you use are indeed edible and organic.
I used these Star Ice Pop molds. In case you want the same ones. What flavor are these pops? I flavored them with orange blossom water and sweetened them with my stevia drops, but you can also use honey, agave or simple syrup.

Beautiful Marla – what a great Mom!
Thanks Jeanette, as are you ~ a GREAT mom!!
Can I ask what flowers you put in your Popsicles?!?!?!?
Alisha, they are organic edible flowers that I got at Whole Foods ~ I do not know the exact varieties. They have a very mild floral flavor and pair very well with the orange blossom water.

I’m so impressed with these popsicles – simple, elegant, and yet rustic. I’ve never seen flowers used this way before, so thank you for the inspiration.

why is there such a high alcohol content in the orange water? Should this really be given to kids?
Hi, thank you so much for bringing my attention to that link to orange blossom water. The one I used I bought at Whole Foods and has no alcohol. Similar to this one… http://astore.amazon.com/familyfreshcooking-20/detail/B000LQJ6DK
These popsicles are beautiful and your photography is stunning!
Amazing. Genius. Breathtaking. Innovative. Stunning. Gorgeous. Inspiring. Beautiful. I’m in l-o-v-e. Thank you so much for sharing your fabulous creation! I am really wowed by this one!

I don’t think I’ve ever referred to popsicles as “lovely” before, but these are exactly that! The flowers make them look so elegant and summery. Love it!
Thank you so much!! I had so m much fun creating these pops ~ so glad you like them too 🙂
Those are just gorgeous! What a beautiful idea, and yes, they’d be perfect for a wedding or a bridal shower. Thanks for sharing!
This looks so whimsical! Such an original idea and such beautiful photos!
Absolutely beautiful! I’ve never seen anything like this before–so unique. Your photos are stunning.
These are absolutely gorgeous!!!!
Hey Marla! I really luv this recipe and I really would luv to know where you get edible flowers from? 🙂
Yajna, I purchased mine at Whole Foods 🙂
I am speechless at how Gorgeous these are! Just Beautiful…
Hello! What Fun! I just wanted to let you know that I have featured this post on my Blog. I believe in giving credit where credit is due, so please follow the link and notify me if anything in the post is not to your liking!

What a great and gorgeous idea. However, be sure to research flowers for edibility before using – or photographing them. Unfortunately, the flowers highlighted here are Ranunculus (from your daughter holding a bouquet to decorating the popsicle stand). ALL PARTS OF RANUNCULUS, INCLUDING THE FLOWER, ARE POISONOUS. Although calendula petals are edible (used as a saffron substitute), you don’t eat the whole flower.
I wrote “Edible Flowers from Garden to Palate” back in 1993, but it is still considered the best reference (and cookbookj) on edible flowers by gardeners and chefs alike. If anyone is interested in an updated list of flowers, which includes common and botanical names, and description of flavor, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy. There are more than 80 flowers on the list, and it is regularly updated.
These look awesome and delicious! I love how colorful they are while still keeping an elegance and simplicity. Such a great idea.
I made these for the 4th of July and my daughter and sister loved them. They have a light fragrant orange blossom taste. I did substitute sugar instead of stevia drops and they were still sweet and lovely. They were all very impressed with the beauty of the popsicles
Oh FYI, I got the edible flowers from Whole Foods in the section that carries fresh
rosemary and thyme herbs
Can yu tell me what yu are using the aluminum foil for?
Great question! So I could stick in the popsicle stick & keep it from moving to the edges (keep it centered)
