Flowers for Flower Girls and Ring Bearers
Small flower balls, also called pomanders, or delicate posies arranged in a willow or satin basket are popular for the little ones. If you like the idea of having the flower girl throw some rose petals, make sure to check with the site if throwing petals is allowed. Eight or nine year old flower girls often like to carry a small bouquet. Head wreaths, made with delicate blossoms and berries are always a sweet touch.
A small boutonnier is perfect for the ring bearer ; he can also carry a pillow made with small flowers or moss.
These flower pillows were made with kermit mums, dotted with small pearls.
The head wreath matched the decorated rim of the basket, filled with petals.
Pomanders are a fun alternative to baskets for the flower girls
This basket, filled with petals, was decorated with moss, berries, small cones and juniper berries
My niece’s daughter was so excited to be a flower girl. For weeks before the wedding, whenever she would come visit, she asked to help make a ‘flower crown’. She would lay out the blossoms in the order she liked and I would glue them on the wire. Months later, she still likes to make them sometimes. Very fun!
