Cover a plastic-foam ball with silk flowers and hang it from a looped ribbon so the flower girl can carry it as she walks down the aisle. Or, have a florist create a ball of fresh flowers.
Fabric-covered tin buckets make lovely (and sturdy) carrying baskets for a flower girl. Fill with a bouquet if flower petals cannot be dropped. (See instructions in the link below)
Your flower girl will be delighted to carry a special fabric purse filled with rose petals. Be sure to determine if your wedding venue allows dropping the petals; or, just fill the bag with silk petals or a small bouquet. (See instructions in the link below)
Country Bouquet Holder
A ribbon handle added to this bouquet holder would make it an appropriate accessory for a flower girl. Fill the embellished wallpaper cone with rose petals. (See instructions in the link below)
- Floral Crown: Instead of carrying flowers, adorn a flower girl's hair with a crown of baby rosebuds.
- Long-stemmed flowers: Rather than drop petals or flowerheads, have the flower girl pass out long-stemmed roses (with thorns removed) or other flowers to people seated along the aisles.
- Basket of flowers: For a more natural look, give the flower girl a gathering basket filled with long-stemmed wildflowers, wired in so they don't fall out.
- Bells: According to Irish custom, ringing bells chase away evil spirits and bring peace to a quarreling couple. The flower girl can either ring a bell as she walks down the aisle, or pass out bells to people seated along the aisles.
