I had my girls (both were 2 1/2) carry little flower balls. They have a name for them, but I can’t remember them at the moment. They just walked down the isle with them, and they were both cute as a button!

@2peas…I think pomanders is the word you are looking for and I agree…those would be perfect. [attachment=670523,87403] [attachment=670523,87404]

pompadors are very sweet and perfect for little girls to carry! they’re also called kissing balls.

At least at my florist rose pomaders were inexpensive. Some flowers can run you a little higher, but I was told that roses were the cheapest way to go.

That’s what mine told me, too, they’re cheaper than a bouquet.

DIY pomanders are VERY easy to make.

 

MY Flower Girl is having a small bouquet – but she is older (8 at the time of the wedding).

If you like the basket route, you can have the florist make an arrangement in a basket without actually having petals to throw. They would just carry the basket.

I like Mrs. Star’s stuffed animal idea, personally!

We have 5 flower girls that can’t throw flowers either. So I bought little bouquets at Michael’s with my 50% off coupons.  And thank goodness because the fake flowers need for one kissing ball would have been around $20… these were $4 each!

I made ribbon pomanders. They turned out so cute.

Not sure of your theme…. but I attended a wedding where instead of flower girls, she called them something else… some kind of princesses or angels!!

Anyway, the girls wore white, had angel wings on, and carried wands, and had little halos on their head!! It was cute
