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.

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 sugar-free stevia drops.

Yield: 6 popsicles

Serving Size: 1/3 cup

Spring Bouquet Popsicles


  • 16 ounces Cold Water
  • 1 ounce Orange Blossom Water
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • Plain Stevia Drops or your favorite natural sweetener to taste (Honey would be great too) I used one full dropper of stevia.
  • a handful of Organic Edible Flowers, rinsed and remove petals


  • Have pop molds handy and make sure you have room in your freezer. Combine water, orange blossom water and lemon juice. Sweeten to taste. Pour mixture into molds. Freeze without sticks and petals for about 1 hour. Remove from freezer and add flower petals. You can push them into the molds with the help of a long, skinny spoon or pop stick. Make sure the flowers are scattered throughout the pops. Add sticks and freeze for 2-3 hours more until solid.

    These are so insanely gorgeous. I am obsessed with edible flowers and make ice cubes all of the time- but popsicles NEVER occurred to me! genius.

    • Heather…thank you!! Coming from you that means soooooo much. Love the idea of putting the edible flowers in ice cubes for summer cocktails & cute kiddo drinks.

  2. Oh my! Gorgeous!!! These are so creative and beautiful! For sure they should be featured in every major food and interior decorator magazine! Love your pictures and the color is so inspiring. xxoo

  3. Marla, your Popsicles are amazing. You stepped out of the box and created something outstanding, beautiful and delicious. They are sure to be a big hit and loved by many. Congratulation!

  5. Amazingly beautiful!! What a fabuous idea! Perfect for a bridal shower or little girls’s birthday party! I adore the picture of your sweet girl in black and white with her beautiful colorful bouquet of flowers. You’ve done it again!!!

  6. What a cute cute idea! LOVE it. I am sure my little one would appreciate a lavender or rose Popsicle. Bookmarked!
    And WOW at all the photographs specially the one with your little girl holding the popsicles in B&W. gorgeous all the way! :-)

    • 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.

  7. With your blog posts, Spring is around the whole year..just can’t get enough from the awesome pictures you clicks, Marla! How colorful and sweet smelling these Popsicle would be..wonderful idea.

  8. These would be so perfect for bridal showers or weddings! Or, you…just as an every day kinda thing when you want to pamper yourself. 😛 Gorgeous!

  9. 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. I am featuring this post in today’s Friday Food Fetish roundup (with a link-back and attribution), but please let me know if you have any objections. It’s a pleasure to be following your creations…

  10. […] And finally, I’m not sure how practical this is for dinner on the go, but you really have to check out the beautiful photos of these spring bouquet popsicles. Take some water, sweeten it, add organic edible flowers, and freeze. Nothing could be simpler, but you won’t believe how beautiful the finished product is. I’m definitely going to give this a try – perfect for an upcoming event we are hosting. (Family Fresh Cooking) […]

  11. 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!

  12. 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!

  13. 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 for a copy. There are more than 80 flowers on the list, and it is regularly updated.

  14. 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

  15. Oh FYI, I got the edible flowers from Whole Foods in the section that carries fresh
    rosemary and thyme herbs

  16. […] It began with the June Recipe ReDux theme and blossomed into an exploration of all things edible flowers (pun intended!) I danced around with the idea of honeysuckles and loved Carlene @ Healthfully Ever After’s simplistic yet unique Honeysuckle Simple Syrup. I also was inspired by Marla @ Family Fresh Cooking‘s beautiful Spring Bouquet Popsicles. […]
